5th International Pure Data­ Convention 2016 ­~ New York

Call for Proposals

Following in the tradition of previous conventions, the 5th International Pure Data Convention in New York (PdCon16~) will attempt to feature proposals by members of the Pd Community that don’t necessarily belong to the categories of paper or concert.

The Pd community is a heterogeneous group of users, developers, authors, artists, musicians, programmers; often in more than one role at a time. Although we can’t possibly program all proposals, we will do our best to accommodate as many events as we can.

Some possible formats could include:

  • Workshops (beginner and advanced).
  • Exhibitions, Installations.
  • Video, Movies.
  • Netart, Telematic performance.
  • Events complementary to the Convention.

Please follow directions in the following page to submit a proposal.
