The Society for Electroacoustic Music in the United States (SEAMUS) invites proposals from institutions to host the SEAMUS 2015 National Conference. This is a three-day conference to be given, preferably, during March or April 2015. The conference will include concerts of new electroacoustic music, videos, and research presentations on a variety of topics related to electroacoustic music.
Hosting a SEAMUS conference draws national attention to an institution and its programs related to composition, computer music, and arts technology. The normal registered attendance is 150-200, drawn from faculty and students from leading academic programs, research and development professionals, and independent creative professionals from across the nation. The conference offers host faculty opportunities for national-level performances, and frequently draws renowned guest performers. It is the focal point of the ASCAP/SEAMUS student composition competition, and each year features a prominent national figure as recipient of the SEAMUS Award.
Proposals may be submitted by a member of SEAMUS who will act as host or co-host for the conference. It is highly advised that potential hosts work directly with the Director of Conferences to develop drafts and the final proposal. Sample proposals and budgets from recent conferences are available for review.
See http://www.seamusonline.org/wp-content/uploads/CFP_Host_SEAMUS2015.pdf for more details. Questions may be addressed to Christopher Hopkins, Director of Conferences.
Deadline for proposals is September 1, 2013.
