The Phonos Foundation, the Pompeu Fabra University of Barcelona, and the
Higher School of Music of Catalonia in conjunction with the International
Computer Music Association, is proud to announce ICMC 2005. The conference
will take place in Barcelona, Spain, from the 5th to 9th of September 2005,
with pre-conference workshops on September 1st and 2nd.

ICMC is the pre-eminent annual gathering of computer music practitioners
from around the world. Its unique interleaving of professional paper
presentations and concerts of new computer music compositions creates a
vital synthesis of science, technology, and the art of music.

By choosing 'free sound' as this year's leitmotif, we aim to emphasise the
idea of freeing sound from its current aesthetic, technical and legal
confines. We wish to promote an open discussion on the extent to which sound
is considered a community asset -- an asset that belongs to society and
cannot be privatised. Thus, we encourage contributions that emphasise these
and related topics.

We invite original contributions in all areas of the computer music field in
a number of formats. However, we are also open to any proposal, and
encourage all submissions, including those that do not fit the categories

We issue the following calls:

* Call for music, video, and installations (deadline February 5, 2005)

We invite submissions of electroacoustic music, video, and installation
works that reflect the diversity of the field. Opportunities exist to
combine digital resources with a variety of instrumental ensembles. For
further details visit

* Call for papers, posters, and demonstrations (deadline March 5, 2005)

We invite submissions for papers, posters, and demonstrations examining the
aesthetic, compositional, educational, musicological, scientific, or
technological aspects of computer music and digital audio. For further
information visit

* Call for panels, workshops and special events (deadline April 5th, 2005)

We invite proposals for panel sessions, workshops and special events,
especially those with relevance to the conference theme of 'free sound'.

* Call for exhibitors (deadline June 5th, 2005)

The conference will provide a forum for the world's leading music technology
companies to showcase their latest product information and for schools and
institutions to highlight their educational programs. We invite submissions
from interested parties.
