eContact! 9.4 -- Hearing (Loss) and Related Issues

The CEC wishes to extend an invitation to 
contribute articles, commentaries, analyses, WIKI 
page content (and more) to eContact! 9.4.

We intend to address the theme from a variety of 
perspectives and therefore welcome contributions 
from Audiologists, Acousticians, 
Psychoacousticians and others, as well as from 
musicians and music lovers (see below for 
suggestions). Contributions do not necessarily 
have to be directly related to electroacoustics, 
but should have some relation to sound (art) 
and/or musical practices.

In addition to new articles written specifically 
for eContact! we are interested in publishing 
articles that may have been written years ago, 
but have since gone out of print, have not yet 
been made available on the internet, or which 
were published on now extinct websites. Any 
previously-published articles will be fully 
credited (the author is responsible for securing 
any necessary permissions).

Articles in any language are welcome. For 
languages other than English or French, the 
author will provide an abstract in one or both of 
these two languages.

The issue will be launched in late May, 
contributions must be ready by mid-May at the 

Contact jef chippewa <jef at econtact.ca> if you are interested in contributing.

eContact! 9.4 will also feature a number of WIKI 
pages, to which anyone can contribute 
information, experiences and recollections, 
knowledge. Visit the WIKI directly to contribute 

http://eContact.ca (9.2 was just released; 9.3 
will be released later this month)
