Organizers of ContinuuCon 2017, the Second International Haken Continuum Conference, have announced a Call for Presentations to anyone interested in presenting a program, staging a workshop, or giving a demonstration directly related to the Haken Continuum Fingerboard.
ContinuuCon is scheduled for June 8–10, 2017 in Asheville, North Carolina. Scheduled presenters include Lippold Haken, inventor of the Continuum, and Edmund Eagan, developer of the Continuum’s onboard synthesis engine, EaganMatrix.
Here’s what organizers have to say about presentations:
If you have an interesting idea for a presentation, you are invited to submit an informal proposal. Presentations should be 30, 45, or 60 minutes in length. Please submit your ideas to [email protected] as soon as practically possible. Although we have not set a fixed deadline for applications, time and space are limited, and applications will no longer be accepted once the available slots have been assigned. At that time, you will be notified whether your proposal has been accepted.
Submitting a proposal will give you the opportunity to help shape ContinuuCon by sharing your ideas, experiences, and insights with all its attendees. If selected as a presenter, you will gain visibility in the musical community and contribute to the Continuum’s advancement as a musical instrument for our times. The organizers will judge your proposal based on its relevance to Continuum players, the quality and focus of your material, and whether your presentation is educational or practical in nature. Note that sales presentations will not be accepted.
Tickets for the event are now on sale at the ContinuuCon site. Ticketholders may attend a Thursday night reception, two days of conference proceedings, and a Saturday night concert. A ticket for the entire event will cost $250, but early registration is $175 through April 30.
