ICAD 2023
2nd Call for Submission of Papers, Extended Abstracts, Workshops/Tutorials, and Music/Installations

28th International Conference on Auditory Display
Norrköping, Sweden
26 June – 01 July 2023


After decades of research dedicated to sonification in terms of audio signal processing, aesthetics, art and design, perception, awareness and human factors, accessibility, auditory augmentation and mixed reality, auditory displays have reached a state with tools and principles that work. It is about time for the breakthrough of sonification in terms of implementation in mass media and consumer markets: Sonification for the masses! The ICAD 2023 committee is seeking full papers, abstracts, concert pieces, demos, installations, workshops, and tutorials from across the full spectrum of auditory display research and practice. This year, we are particularly interested in use cases from everyday life, implementations in mass media, sonification evaluation by wider populations, concepts of sonification in education, learnability and pleasantness of sonifications, and other ways to tackle the theme of sonification for the general public. How informative, aesthetic, universally applicable or specified do sonifications need to be in order to be beneficial for users outside the audio community? During the student think tank, students and young researchers get the chance to exchange ideas and learn from established members of the auditory display community. As a satellite event, we are organizing the Sonic-Tilt competition, where researchers, students and artists submit their own sound design for Tiltification, a bullseye spirit level available in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

About ICAD:
First held in 1992, ICAD is a highly interdisciplinary conference with relevance to researchers, practitioners, artists, and graduate students working with sound to convey and explore information. The conference is unique in its specific focus on auditory displays and the range of interdisciplinary issues related to their use. Like its predecessors, ICAD 2023 will be a single-track conference, open to all, with no membership or affiliation requirements.
