The Origins of DAFx and its Future within the Sound and Music Computing Field

Xavier Serra
DAFx-2007 - Bordeaux
DAFX is an established conference that has become a reference gathering for the researchers working on audio signal processing. In this presentation I will go back ten years to the beginning of this conference and to the ideas that promoted it. Then I will jump to the present, to the current context of our research field, different from the one ten years ago, and I will make some personal reflections on the current situation and the challenges that we are encountering.
