APSCOM 2005's program consisted of three keynote addresses and 31 regular sessions. Also included in the program were a symposium and a poster session, where participants displayed their studies on posters for people to read. In addition, tours around Seoul were arranged.
Keynote addresses titled "The Status of Artists in Plato's Ideal State" by Professor Kim Young-jung (Seoul National Univ.), "Sound Design: Concept, Necessity, Possibility, and Basic Studies" by Professor Shin-ichiro Iwamiya (Kyushu Univ.), and "Analyzing Motive in Performance" by Professor John Rink (University of London) were presented. Participants presented their research in regular sessions under ten topics which included Music, Emotion & Meaning and Performance & Creativity.
A visit to the Leeum Museum, a tour around Insa-dong, and a shopping trip to Dongdaemun were arranged as social events. Pat Wilson, an Australian participant, described her visit to the Leeum Museum as "Great art in a beautiful setting." A conference dinner at the restaurant Phil Kyung Jae gave participants a taste of traditional Korean cuisine. Staff and student volunteers' efforts to make the program run smoothly received positive comments from participants.
"Making us beyond academic activities, I believe this conference has promoted understanding and communication among all participants," said Professor Chang Sun-hee, the chair of APSCOM 2005.
