Talk proposal for KISS2018: Altered States
Share your sound and music success story with an audience who can really appreciate it — your fellow Kyma practitioners! Have you solved a problem, finished the sound design for a game, completed a collaborative installation, created some unusual sound effects for a film, or collaborated with a researcher from another discipline? Are you particularly proud of some sounds 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!
Do you have some thought-provoking ideas you'd like to share on the subject(s) of Altered States and/or Ecosystems and how these concepts relate to sound, music, Kyma and potential opportunities for changing the state of our world? Keynotes are longer talks, of interested to a general audience and specifically related to the theme(s) of the conference.
(Please note, this form is for proposing standalone talks; if you are proposing a talk in conjunction with a live performance, please use the Live Performance proposal form for both the performance and the related talk. Thanks!)

Anything else? Please let us know if there are other technical or logistical considerations we may have overlooked!
Please imagine going through your talk and let us know about any other considerations (technical or otherwise) that should be taken into account. Thanks.
Please check yes!
Since KISS2018 is all about human interaction, we ask that, should your proposal be accepted, you will attend the symposium to present your work. (If unavoidable, unforeseen circumstances prevent you from attending, your presentation will have to be dropped from the program). Also, since 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 a 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 KISS2018 in Santa Cruz?
My ecosystem is disequilibreated
My state is altered
