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.
