Age: These workshops are open to composers born after July 1, 1977.

Composers can not take part in the Composition Workshops two consecutive years. They may, however, take part in as many of the activities offered by acanthes@ircam as an auditor.

Composers’ applications dossiers for the Composition Workshops will be examined by a reading panel made up of guest instructors whose decisions are final.

The directors of acanthes@ircam, in agreement with the instructors responsible for each workshop, have the right to dismiss a score if it can not be realized during the work sessions.
