The 1st International Conference on Live Coding took place in July 2015 in Leeds. The conference was co-organised by the MIPT Lab at Sussex and ICSRIM in Leeds, facilitated by the AHRC-funded Live Coding Research Network.

The MIPT Lab had a strong presence at the conference: Sally Jane Norman gave a keynote on liveness in performance entitled “Live Coding and Embodied Action in Performance Contexts”, Chris Kiefer presented a paper and performed at the Algorave, and Thor Magnusson performed with his new CMN language as well as at the Algorave. The event was well documented thanks to MFM research funds, enabling Paul McConnell to attend armed with recording equipment. Honorary members of the lab, Nick Collins and Matt Yee-King also performed and gave papers.

The ICLC conference will take place in Hamilton, Canada next year, organised by LCRN collaborator David Ogborn.
