Special Issue of Springer „Virtual Reality“ journal on Spatial Sound in
Virtual and Augmented Reality
The Virtual Reality Journal, Springer Verlag Press, is announcing a call
for papers to appear in a special edition that will focus on the use of
spatialized sound in virtual and augmented reality environments. The
journal seeks original, high-quality papers in the design and use of
spatialized sound in virtual reality, including augmented reality and
mixed reality. Each paper should be classifiable as mainly covering
research, applications, or systems, using the following guidelines for each:
– Research papers should describe results that contribute to advances in
state-of- the-art software, hardware, algorithms, interaction, or
– Application papers should explain how the authors built upon existing
ideas and applied them to solve an interesting problem in a novel way.
Each paper should include an evaluation of the success of the use of
VR/AR/MR in the given application domain.
System papers should indicate how the implementers integrated known
techniques and technologies to produce an effective system, along with
any lessons learned in the process. Each paper should include an
evaluation of the system, including benchmarking that was performed.
Topics: Spatialized audio interfaces, perception, presence, and
cognition (specifically in the context of spatialized sound in VR and
AR), navigation and way-finding, applications of spatialized sound for
VR/AR/MR, presence, etc. Paper length and format: Papers shall have a
typical length of 20 pages. MS Word and LaTeX templates are available
Submission and Review Process
All papers should be submitted through the website
using the category of ‚Spatial Sound in Virtual and Augmented Reality.‘
Paper submission deadline: 05 Jan 2015
Notification of acceptance: 04 Apr 2015
Guest Editors: Michael Cohen, Julián Villegas, and Woodrow Barfield
