THIRD INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON MOBILE MUSIC TECHNOLOGY
2-3 MARCH 2006, BRIGHTON, UK
http://www.viktoria.se/fal/events/mobilemusic/

Combining mobile technology and music promises exciting future
developments in a rapidly emerging field. Devices such as mobile phones,
walkmans and iPods have already brought music to the ever-changing 
social
and geographic locations of their users and reshaped their experience of
the urban landscape. With new properties such as ad hoc networking,
Internet connection, and context-awareness, mobile music technology 
offers
countless new artistic, commercial and socio-cultural opportunities for
music creation, listening and sharing. How can we push forward the 
already
successful combination of music and mobile technology? What new forms of
interaction with music lie ahead, as locative media and music use merge
into new forms of everyday experiences?

Following two successful workshops that started to explore and establish
the emerging field of mobile music technology, this third edition 
offers a
unique opportunity to participate in the development of mobile music and
hands-on experience of the latest cutting-edge technology. The programme
will consist of presentations from invited speakers, in-depth 
discussions
about the crucial issues of mobile music technology, hands-on group
activities and break-out sessions where participants can get valuable
feedback on their work-inprogress projects. The invited speakers include
Michael Bull (University of Sussex, UK), often dubbed by the press as
'Professor iPod' for his iPod and car stereo user studies that reveal
fascinating trends for mobile music.

The workshop will take place at the University of Sussex in Brighton, 
UK.
Brighton is situated on the British 'Sunshine Coast' and easily
accessible: only 30 minutes from London/Gatwick airport and 60 minutes
from central London.

Don't miss this chance to help shape the mobile music landscape of the
future!
