Audio and Multimedia


                            CALL FOR PAPERS

              Special Issue of the ACM Multimedia Systems Journal
                         Audio and Multimedia
                 Guest Editors: David Wessel & Lonce Wyse

                Deadline for Submissions: Feb. 28, 1997

Audio has been the neglected stepchild of multimedia family but is
increasingly being recognized as an integral, and even central, part
of applications ranging from data analysis to games.

We hope that this special issue of the Journal will provide some
indication of the breadth of multimedia applications involving audio,
as well delve into the technical issues researchers and developers are
facing regarding sound integration, compression, immersion,
spatialization, design & modeling, networking, and interaction within
a multimedia context.

For the Journal of Multimedia Systems, theoretical, experimental and
survey articles are appropriate, as are descriptions of
state-of-the-art methods and tools. We encourage submissions along the
lines of (without being limited to) the following:

        Synchronizing sound and images in interactive environments

        Timing issues: Latency, jitter, and related temporal

        Current tools for incorporating sounds in applications

        Virtual Musical Instruments

        Streaming audio

        Compression technologies

        Java, the net, multiple clients and sound

        Foley and post-production in the digital age

        Interactive music

        Immersive sound (spatialization, off screen information, ...)

        Data sonification

        Sound design for control by graphic object behaviors

        Sound/Music driven graphics

        A future beyond sample-file playback - the importance of general
        purpose synthesis

        Applications in different areas of science and engineering


If you would like to contribute to this special issue, please send 5
