The first International Conference on Deep Listening July 12-13, 2013
 at Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) , Troy, NY Organized by the Deep Listening Institute, Ltd. (Kingston, NY) in conjunction with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. "We invite proposals that may include scholarly lectures, a poster presentation, experience-oriented expositions/demonstrations, or a mixture of these two."

From Deep Listening:
"Deep Listening has been developed by Pauline Oliveros over the past 40 years as a way to enhance attention, listening and creativity for all. To this end it draws upon a wide variety of embodied practices as well as theories of cognitive science, and has been applied to a variety of fields. This includes pedagogy across all levels of education, creative arts therapy, the realization of new creative works, developing new performance paradigms across abilities and the pairing with new technologies to advance all of these fronts and more.

The conference Deep Listening: Art/Science invites practitioners and scholars to consider the experience of this practice and its use in creation, communication and education. This call equally invites scientific and philosophical discussions that describe the efficacy of the approach or point towards new directions or applications of Deep Listening. We invite proposals that may include scholarly lectures, a poster presentation, experience-oriented expositions/demonstrations, or a mixture of these two."

All topics on the art and/or science of Deep Listening are welcome, while suggestions include:

Deep Listening in the Curriculum: K-12; Higher Ed; Community education
Deep Listening applications to music technology pedagogy
Integrating Deep Listening in workshop contexts
Deep Listening-related exercises as practice and instructional devices
The science of attention and listening vs. hearing
Deep Listening as compositional framework or way offraming performance
Applications of Deep Listening to other creative fields
(e.g. dance, film, poetry)
Deep Listening community building
Deep Listening and conflict management
Enhancing Interpersonal relationships through Deep Listening
Listening Technologies and Deep Listening
Deep Listening futures: communities, creative paradigms, new applications
The application of psychoacoustics and perception/cognition research to the study of Deep Listening
The science of meditation: linking attention, emotion and action with Deep Listening


Submissions will be accepted in one of three forms:

Lectures/Demonstrations/Experiential Presentations that can neatly fit into 20-30 minute time slots, and which can succeed in a conference-style format in an efficient and self-contained manner (e.g. technically, presentationally).
A poster presentation
Workshops which may last 30-60 minutes and include expanded interaction and participation with your audience.
When choosing a format be advised that there are considerably fewer slots available for workshop-style presentations than conference-style or poster presentations.

A subset of Paper-based presentations will be considered for a future collection on the Art and Science of Deep Listening. To be considered for this, authors must include an extended abstract (maximum 1,000 words) with their submission and submit the full paper in advance of the conference.
Submission Deadline TBA.
