                                  ICAD '94
                  International Conference on Auditory Display
                            Santa Fe, New Mexico
                          Dates: November 7-9, 1994

                                 Sponsored by
                              Santa Fe Institute

    Continuing the work of the successful ICAD '92 meeting, ICAD '94 will
    be held November 7-9, 1994 in Santa Fe, New Mexico, U.S.A.  ICAD is a
    forum for presenting research on the use of sound to display data,
    monitor systems, and provide enhanced user interfaces for computers
    and virtual reality systems.  It is unique in its singular focus on
    auditory displays, and the array of perception, technology, and
    application areas that these encompass.  ICAD '94 will be a single-
    track conference.  Attendance is open to all, with no membership or
    affiliation requirements.

    Papers are solicited on any aspects of Auditory Display.  Topic areas
    include, but are not limited to:

       - Auditory exploration of data via sonification (data-controlled
         sound) and audification (audible playback of data samples)

       - Real-time monitoring of multivariate data

       - Sound in immersive interfaces (Virtual Reality) and Teleoperation

       - Perceptual issues in Auditory Display

       - Sound in generalized computer interfaces

       - Technologies supporting Auditory Display creation

       - Data handling and sound synthesis for Auditory Display systems

       - Applications of Auditory Display


    Both short and long papers may be submitted.  Long papers are not to
    exceed 10 single spaced, single sided pages, and short papers are not
    to exceed 5 pages.  Authors may state their preference for a long or
    short presentation, but the final decision is up to the Steering

    In order to facilitate the blind review process, the following
    submission guidelines must be strictly adhered to:

    1. Submit 6 copies of the complete paper to

          ICAD Conference Chair
          Santa Fe Institute
          1660 Old Pecos Trail, Suite A
          Santa Fe, NM 87051

    2. Include a single cover sheet which contains

          - the paper title
          - the full names, affiliations, complete addresses, phone and
            FAX numbers, and e-mail addresses of the authors
          - a 100- to 150-word abstract
          - a list of up to five keywords

    3. Author names and addresses are NOT to appear in the body of the
       paper and self-reference should be in the third person to avoid
       compromising anonymity.

   The focus of the Santa Fe Institute is research on complex systems.
   This work encompasses an extraordinary range of topics normally
   studied in seemingly disparate fields.  Natural systems displaying
   complex adaptive behavior range upwards from DNA through cells and
   evolutionary systems to human societies.  The dynamics of complex
   systems are difficult to comprehend and even more difficult to
   communicate.  Data visualization--and more recently data
   sonification--are emerging as crucial tools for the comprehension
   and communication of complex systems data.


   Santa Fe is a small, picturesque city located at an altitude of 7,000
   feet in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.  A town of 55,000 people,
   it is renowned for its beauty, art, culture, museums, and restaurants.
   Snow in November is probable and ski resorts will likely be open.
