The Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium (TIES) is co-presented by the Canadian Electroacoustic Community presented in August each year and includes papers, lecture-recitals and several concert works curated by an international jury. It is an annual opportunity for exchange between diverse EA communities. In recent years, a number of themes have emerged, among them: creative and collaborative practices, curation, research and analysis, algorithmic processes, videomusic and intermedia practices, electronic ensembles and live coding.
