Lively discussions, electronic/computer music performances, interactive installations, demos, workshops, and paper sessions will be held in the newly renovated Casino Baumgarten, a spectacular ballroom built in 1890 (http://www.tonsalon.at/KISS2010/index.php/location), and the Rhiz Bar Modern, a showcase for experimental media in Vienna (http://rhiz.org/).
