> October 22nd through 29th
>Beijing, China
>The week-long MusicAcoustica 2006 festival (22?29 October) will be
>focused on the broad theme of Language. EMS06 papers, in more
>focused paper sessions (from the 23rd to 26th), will concentrate on
>a crucial aspect of language, namely terminology - see the full call
>for papers here: We consider this
>historical joint meeting in Beijing as essentially an international
>summit on the coherence of electroacoustic music terminology subject
>to the twisting and bending of the field in its emerging global
>context. Music, sound installations and workshops will further
>reflect on the theme in all its breadth and depth.
>Chinese composers and academics come together once a year to plan
>future directions for the development of computer music in China and
>to learn/exchange with their international guests. This year the
>Electroacoustic Music Studies Network (EMS) "an international team
>which aims to encourage reflection on the better understanding of
>electroacoustic music" will be our special guests at the festival.
>At the same time, we invite a broad reflection on the theme from
>experts in linguistics and music, ontology specification, semantic
>web, music knowledge modeling and translation issues related to
>expert domain knowledges.
>A local motivation for the conference relates to problems in
>translation of new terms (such as microsound or phonography) into
>Chinese. However, we invite submissions from various perspectives
>derived from projects posing new approaches to coherent structuring
>of specialized domain knowledges (such as new media - translate
>smartmob into Chinese!) which have faced problems with translation
>issues. The objective of this ?summit? is to create a forum of
>sustained co-operation; an international effort towards situating
>and translating electronic music concepts and terms within the
>emerging semantic global village. Workshops and extended residencies
>are invited in the days surrounding the conference.
