school in Product Sound Design, Innovation and entrepreneurship

2012 Sound and Music Computing Summer School

Product sound design, innovation and entrepreneurship

Future products will rely on our natural capabilities of continuous
and physical interaction. Moreover, for the best experience in their
use, they need
to stimulate, but not saturate, all our senses. Our sense of hearing
is quite advanced; yet only a few product developers, engineers,
marketing teams,
and designers know how to make use of it properly.
Our mission in this summer school is to educate the future product
design and development team members with a specific competence on
sound. The summer school follows up from the Product Sound Design
Summer School 2010 (Aalto University, Design Factory, Finland) supported
by the COST Action IC0601 Sonic Interaction Design.
The school will feature, among others, Andy Farnell, Cumhur Erkut and
Davide Rocchesso as instructors, together with several faculty members
from Aalborg University, and talks from experts in innovation and
entrepreneurship from industry members.

If you are:
– enrolled in a PhD program in design, computer science, media
technology, engineering, or economics,
– eager to explore the potential of sound in product design and
development under the guidance of expert instructors and tutors,
– interested in innovation and entrepreneurship in sound and music
– excited about the inspiring, interdisciplinary, and problem-based
learning environment of Aalborg University in Copenhagen,

then please consider participating to the summer school by emailing a
CV, a letter of interest that clearly indicates your motivation,
previous experience
with interactive product sound design, and your expectations from this
school, all in PDF, to Rolf Nordahl rn@create.aau.dk , and Stefania
sts@create.aau.dk, with the text “SMC2012school” included in your
subject, latest by Friday March 30th, 2012.

Maximum 30 selected participants will be notified by April 16th, 2012.
The cost of attending the summer school, including lectures, training
sessions, lunches and coffee breaks and inspirational talks from
company representatives is 200€. The school offers 5 ECTS of credits.
