Call for Papers

The Multimedia and Music miniconf has been accepted into LCA 2014 by the conference organisers. We are therefore seeking proposals from people who would like to present at the miniconf on any topic related to multimedia and music on Open Source platforms. Possible topics could include

  • the unveiling of a new piece of software
  • a demonstration showcasing multimedia content created on Open Source platforms
  • the construction of open hardware for multimedia and music creation
  • video and image editing on Linux
  • setting up Linux systems to use for music recording
  • serving videos on the web with an open source server tools
  • an exploration of content creation workflows with Open Source tools
  • the development of drivers to allow new or experimental hardware to be used on open platforms
  • writing a game for Open Source platforms

Topics are limited only by the imagination of those presenting. Visit the websites from previous miniconfs to see the diverse range of past presentations.

We are planning to offer 20 minute and 45 minute presentation slots, but other lengths could be accommodated on request.

To submit a proposal or if you have any questions, please email one of the organisers (Jonathan Woithe, Silvia Pfeiffer) with the title and a short abstract which explains what you would like to present. Submissions are particularly encouraged from first-time presenters.
