Click this link to Register for the Party!
This is the 9th annual @party and we’re returning to Artisan’s Asylum in Somerville, MA USA. There will be three full days of scheduled programming from Friday June 8th through Sunday June 10th with 24 hour site access.
The room will have a permanently installed sound system and bigscreen comparable in size to the party system of the past five years and you’re welcome to consume meals and refreshments at your computer place. You can’t sleep here though, so please make arrangements for a hotel or roomshare if you don’t intend to stay awake for three days straight.
We’ve also already begun scheduling live acts for Friday and Saturday and seminar presentations for all three days. Stay tuned for further details or contact us if you’re interested in presenting or performing as there are still some time slots available.
Thank you, and we hope to see you at @party 2018!

The @party 2017 seminars have now been scheduled:
Khronos Technology Overview – Jim Susinno, Khronos Boston Chapter Leader
Khronos technologies connect the graphics software we write and enjoy to the silicon that powers it. We present an overview of APIs like OpenGL, WebGL, glTF and the new OpenXR, which open more possibilities to software developers than ever before.
Sound Chip Chillout – Inverse Phase
Join Inverse Phase as we take a relaxing deep dive into the capabilities of retro sound hardware. We’ll discuss different types of chips, what makes each chip unique, how to tell them apart, and listen to examples of each. Questions encouraged!
Book Productions: The Latest in Computer-Generated Literary Art – Nick Montfort
Computer-generated poetry and fiction has been developed since the 1950s in a few academic projects and in some experiments by artists and writers. Today it is becoming a more popular, widespread practice, and more people are creating book-length work thanks to activities like National Novel Generation Month. I’ll explain how a few important projects work, outline a few connection with and points of departure from the demoscene, and will read a some selections from what might be called ‘the demoshelf.’
It’s our pleasure to announce the live performances for @party 2017:
Friday Night Concert:
Charles Berman aka Bermondo is a guitarist, composer and multi-media artist. Charles’ primary medium is live multimedia performance, making use of electric guitar, computer, infrared motion sensor and projector. Bermondo will perform at 9:00 PM on Friday June 9th.
