I was curious to see some demographic figures for this year’s ICMC, so I looked up the number of times various countries are mentioned in the PDF program booklet:
Hong Kong: 7
Nothing particularly surprising here. The program booklet is mostly about the performances, tough, so I wish I had a PDF of the proceedings to check if the same holds for the scientific papers. It would also be interesting to compare these numbers to last year’s ICMC in Barcelona. I have a feeling that the European representation was larger there. I have a CD-ROM with the proceedings from last year lying around somewhere so I will check this when I get back to Oslo.
It would be interesting to do a systematic and larger scale study of demographical trends in music technology, but I guess I should leave that until after my dissertation is done…
