Dates and Location

AU14 will run from Friday 11th to Saturday 12th July 2014 at UCLan (University of Central Lancashire) in Preston, England.

We have had a lot of interest on our survey and whilst we will no longer be monitoring it, we will leave it open for a little while longer.


You can now book on our Eventbrite page for either the Friday, Saturday or both days. The cost is £25 per day. Numbers are limited to 115 but we are releasing places slowly so if we appear to be 'full', please email our administrator Colette [email protected] and she may be able to release a ticket for you.


Local hotels: There are several local hotels, including the Legacy Preston International and the Premier Inn.

Student halls: There are rooms available in a private hall (who work in conjunction with the University). All rooms are en-suite in flats containing six rooms with a communal self-catering kitchen with basic crockery and equipment. The hall is Moor Lane Hall and cost is £25.00 per night inc VAT. Bedding is provided in rooms, but beds are not made up. To take advantage of this please see the form or email our administrator Colette [email protected] if you have any problems with that.

What will happen?

We don't know what's going to happen, that's up to the people attending!

The idea here is to give people the time and space to get together with like-minded people for a chat and maybe a soft drink / beer etc. afterwards. Have some fun!

People who answered the survey have offered lots of sessions, but they may not all be able to attend. We will try and summarize those ideas here soon.

What will you gain? Maybe amazing music. Maybe some useful lesson plans. Maybe a novel way to measure the speed of sound. Maybe a collaboration with another school / researcher. Maybe a chat with a developer. Maybe a chance conversation with a future collaborator. Who knows? Maybe some inspiration?

We have various spaces available for break-outs, jam sessions, etc., all the normal university stuff. Space to do stuff. What will you need?

Who's coming?

We don't know yet. As people register there will be some sort of social-media presence for us all to chat and organise ourselves.

This is available to all Audacity people, such as (in no particular order):

  • Audacity users
    • Educators
      • school teachers
      • university lecturers
    • Musicians
    • Podcasters

      • whale-song researchers
      • who else is using Audacity in their research?
  • Developers
  • Forum 'elves'

Anybody with an interest in Audacity, really. Help us extend/refine this list :-).

Please promote it to your various contacts.
