Thank you all!
As a follow-up of the successful The Global Composition 2012, the 2018 conference brought together around 100 scholars, scientist, designers, engineers, educators, artists, composers, and activists from all over the world, all selected by a double-blind peer-review process following a transdisciplinary open call. 

Within the framework of acoustic ecology, this year’s symposium had its focus on media culture. It discussed innovative cultural, artistic and educational auditory practices in an age coined by worldwide migration, the societal requirement of diversity, and an enormous increase of new audio technologies and Augmented/Virtual Reality. 

At the same time, The Global Composition 2018 centered around the silver jubilee of the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology, which was founded 25 years before in Banff/Canada, so that the Dieburg event also balanced and compared Soundscape Studies’ achievements, its old and new perspectives.

Check out here all the special discounts offered to students and WFAE members as well as the methods of payment.

The conference fee covers access to the whole program and includes refreshments during breaks, conference dinner, and conference documents.

Submissions will be double-blind peer reviewed by a scholarly/scientific committee and an artistic committee.

There are several possibilities to travel to and stay in Dieburg.

If you have any questions or concerns, please use the contact form. Our team will be happy to help you.
