And about the conference here:


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 interactive 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 Master or 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 at
