Interactive Audio Systems Symposium, York - Author Deadline Extended: July 10th

Hello all,
The deadline for paper proposals for the Interactive Audio Systems Symposium has been extended to Sunday July 10th. The programme is shaping up to be a packed day of talks and demos on all aspects of interactive audio with keynotes and tutorials from leading academic and industry figures including the BBC and IRCAM amongst others. If you are interested in presenting a paper or poster, please submit an abstract before July 10th. Hope to see you there!

Very best,

Call for Contributions

Interactive Audio Systems Symposium,
University of York
York, UK

Friday 23rd September, 2016

Recent advances in low-cost motion-tracking and sensing technologies,
coupled with increased computing power have paved the way for new
methods of audio production and reproduction. Interactive audio
systems can now readily utilise non-tactile data such as listener
location, orientation, gestural control and even biometric feedback,
such as heart rate, to intelligently adjust sound output. Such systems
offer new creative possibilities for a diverse range of applications
ranging from virtual reality, mobile technologies, in-car audio,
gaming, social media and film and TV production.

The University of York is pleased to announce a one-day symposium
dedicated to this topic of interactive audio systems. The symposium
will explore the perceptual, signal processing and creative challenges
and opportunities arising from such audio systems affected through
enhanced human-computer interaction.

The symposium will consist of original paper and poster sessions as
well as invited presentations from key industry figures and
demonstrations of emerging interactive audio technologies. We are now
accepting proposals (Abstract and Precis) for 4-8 page papers or
posters on novel research in related fields to interactive audio
including, but not limited to, the following areas:

- Moving sounds and moving listeners
- Audio for Virtual Reality
- Spatial audio techniques
- Psychoacoustics and perception
- Signal processing for interactive audio
- Robust listener control
- Motion tracking
- Game audio
- Real-time audio synthesis
- Interactive music generation
- Workflows for interactive audio
- Sound design for interactive audio

We also invite proposals for tutorials, workshops and demos to be
presented on the day.
