Live Interfaces is an international conference on research and
practice in live performance technology.  The conference seeks to
investigate cross-disciplinary understandings of performance
technology with a particular focus on issues related to the notion of
liveness in interaction.

A preliminary programme with a list of papers and performances is
available here: http://lipam.lurk.org/

Here is a summary of the conference structure:

Fri 7th - morning, School of Music, University of Leeds

Two workshops to choose from:
- Thor Magnusson's hands-on introduction to Live Coding with his
   free/open source IXI Lang software.  Participants should bring their
   own Mac Laptop (pre-booking required)

Paper presentation and performance sessions will alternate throughout
both days.

Paper presentations will take place in the lecture theatres of the
School of Music, on a wide array topics which include audience
perception/interaction, biophysical sensors, body hacks, gesture
recognition, computer vision, digital choreography, network based
performance, live art, tangible interaction, philosophical questions
underlying performance technology, and sticks.

A wide variety of concert hall performances will be staged in the
adjoining Clothworkers' Centenary Concert Hall, including musical,
audio/visual, dance and multi-channel works.  These will all explore
the conference theme of live interfaces, with technical approaches
which include brain control interfaces, biophysical sensors, computer
vision, network based interaction, interactive sculpture, live coding
and cellular automata.

Evening, Fri 7th, Hi-Fi Club

At the end of the first day, we will descend into the award-winning
HiFi Club in central Leeds, to enjoy further peer reviewed
audio/visual performances.  Performances have been selected for the
club as being well suited for dark spaces with big speakers and well
stocked bars.  (Non-conference attendees are welcome to join us for
the club performances, for a small fee on the door)

Live Interfaces is made possible with the support of Vitae Yorkshire,
ICSRiM/School of Music in the University of Leeds, DP Creative, and
the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
