    First International Conference on Live Coding ICSRiM, School of Music, University of Leeds 13th-15th July 2015
    We are happy to announce that registration for ICLC2015 is now open.
    Live coding turns programming languages into live interfaces, allowing us to directly manipulate computation via its notation. Live coding has great potential, being used for example to create improvised music and visuals, to allow developers to collaborate in new ways, to better understand computational models by making fundamental changes to them on-the-fly, and to find new ways to learn and teach programming.
    Since the beginning of the TOPLAP movement in 2003 (building on an extensive but hidden pre-history), live coding has grown fast, attracting interest from many people in artistic, creative, scientific, educational, business and mixed contexts. After a good number of international events, the time is right to bring these people together for an academic conference, exchanging ideas and techniques, and enjoying dozens of peer reviewed papers and performances. The conference will also open up the field for people new to live coding, so they may develop and contribute their own perspectives on this emerging field. Join us!
    Registration is £80 (£50 concessions) for the three day conference including lunches, evening events, and more.

    ICLC is organised by the Live Coding Research Network, which is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
