Talk & Workshop Proposals for KISS 2020
Share your sound design and music success story with the audience who can best appreciate it — your fellow Kyma practitioners!
Have you come up with a new collection of patches this year? Have you created some clever sound designs for a game? Compiled a set of tools or Capytalk functions? Created some unusual sound effects or music for a film or advertisement? Collaborated with a researcher from another discipline? Are you particularly proud of some sound or music you designed for a film, a game or a virtual environment? Share your stories, challenges, solutions, lessons learned, and future challenges yet to be solved!
Or perhaps you have some thought-provoking or inspiring ideas you'd like to share related to "The Sound of Science": Kyma, sound design, science, music, data, and potential opportunities for making our world a better place? Do you have an inspiring "Origin Story" (challenges overcome with the help of loyal friends) to share around the virtual campfire?
Do you have some hard-won knowledge that you'd like to share with fellow practitioners? Your talk could also take the form of a tutorial or workshop.
Please note, this form is for proposing standalone talks; if you are proposing a talk as an adjunct to your live performance proposal, please use the Live Performance proposal form for both the performance and the related talk. Thanks!
Co-authors or co-presenters (with links to bios)
Once your proposal has been accepted, the author and presenter names cannot be changed without going through a second review process by the selection committee. Thank you!

Please give an enticing summary of your proposed talk with special emphasis on why your fellow Kyma practitioners will not want to miss it!
You can select more than one (for example, if you'd like to give a formal presentation in the lecture hall and also give a hands-on demonstration for small groups during the Open Lab. The more options you check, the easier it will be for us to find a slot for your presentation! (Keynotes are longer talks, of interest to a general audience and specifically related to the theme and/or location of the conference.)
Lecture/Demonstration with slides in an auditorium or lecture hall (30')
Elevator Pitch with slides in an auditorium or lecture hall (15')
60' keynote on the theme "Sound of Science" or "Origin Stories"
30' talk on "Sound of Science" or "Origin Stories"
A link to your bio (or a short bio sketch)
Sound source for your talk
The lecture hall has stereo audio playback. Please let us know if your presentation requires additional channels.
Stereo headphone jack from your laptop
Two balanced audio TRS jacks from your audio interface
Two XLR balanced outputs from your audio interface
Video output from your laptop(s)
There is a single screen in the lecture hall. Please let us know if your presentation would benefit from two screens or if you would like advice on live switching between presentation software and Kyma 7, please contact
Approximately how many 110 V / 60 Hz power outlets are required?
How much setup time is required prior to the presentation?
Any tables, lecterns, or other "furniture" required?
Could your setup share table space with other presenters on the same session? If so, how much space do you need? Do you need anything like music stands, lights, a podium, or other non-electronic support?
Anything else? Please let us know if there are other technical or logistical considerations we may have overlooked!
Please imagine going through your setup and presenting your talk and let us know if there are any other requirements or consideration (technical or otherwise).Thanks!
Please check Yes!
KISS 2020 is about human interaction so we ask that, should your proposal be accepted, you will attend the symposium to present your work. (If unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances prevent you from attending, your presentation will have to be dropped from the program). Because the proposals are carefully reviewed by a selection committee, we ask that if your proposal is accepted, that you not substitute a different topic without submitting the new proposal for another full review by the selection committee prior to the submission deadline. Although our budget sadly does not allow for remuneration of presenters, the organizers have generously offered to subsidize presenters, co-presenters and performers of accepted presentations at a reduced-rate conference fee (equal to the subsidized student rate).
Yes, I understand the operational & budgetary constraints and happily agree to these conditions!
No, I am unable to accept these conditions
How eagerly are you looking forward to KISS 2020 in Champaign-Urbana?
Still looking for inspiration...
I already hear the sound of science as an earworm!
