                SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS
The 8th International Conference on Auditory Display
Advanced Telecommunication Research Institute, Kyoto, Japan
2nd - 5th of July 2002

Please note: Extended Deadline for papers!   8th Feb.

ICAD 2002 will be held from the 2nd - 5th of July 2002 at Advanced Telecommunication Research Institute, Japan.

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, design and application areas that these encompass. Like its predecessors, ICAD 2002 will be a single-track conference. Attendance is open to all, with no membership or affiliation requirements.

There are two categories for papers: long papers of 10 pages and 30 minutes presentation time, and short papers of 6 pages and 20 minutes. Accepted posters will have 6 pages in the proceedings.

Submissions should consist of a 2-3 pages extended abstract for short papers and posters and a 4-5 pages extended abstract for long papers. Since audio demonstrations are an essential part of ICAD, the abstract should include a description of the prospective audio demonstrations. The templates for submissions are available at http://www.mic.atr.co.jp/icad2002/page/templates.html

Papers are sought covering all aspects of auditory display. Work in progress papers are also acceptable. Example topics include, but are not limited to:

* sonification
* 3D/immersive sound
* perceptual aspects of 3D sound
* psychoacoustics and perception
* auditory displays in games and entertainment
* auditory displays in PDA's, wearable computing and embedded systems
* sound synthesis and digital signal processing
* audio in assistive technologies
* auditory icons and earcons
* aesthetics of sonification and 'musification'
* auditory display and art

The papers from this conference will be published in the proceedings and CD-ROM. The CD-ROM will include also sound examples. The conference organization will also reserve the right to publish the papers online although copyright will be retained by the author.

All accepted papers must be presented by an author at the conference. If none of the authors of an accepted paper has registered to the conference, the paper may not be published in the proceedings nor the CD-ROM.

**Some researchers, particularly in Australia, have requested that we also accept full papers to review as it increases their funding options for travel support from their universities or organisations. For those in this situation, full papers can be accepted and peer reviewed along with the abstracts .The print proceedings will have an ISBN number.

"Optimal Encoding of Information for a Human Listener"
"Virtual Acoustic Rendering Technology"
"Subjective Evaluation of Spatial Sound Reproduction"

**If you wish to submit papers under the above special topics, please indicate when you mail us the abstract.

Demo submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their innovation, relevance, scientific contribution, and potential logistic constraints. Commercial products are eligible, but sales and marketing activities are not appropriate. (NOTE: Please be prepared to provide your own equipment/computers for your demonstration, if you need special facilities. We can provide some standard equipment.)

**Two workshops will be held, each with its own call for papers, please follow the links for more information.

Renkon: Workshop on Performance Rendering Systems: Today and Tomorrow, July 6, 2002. at ATR.

CREST workshop on Computational Models in auditory Processing 8-9July 2002 at ATR.

It is our wish to be able to include some art and music related presentations this year. Depending on availability of space and other resources, a small number of sound installations and performances should be possible.

Please note: Extended Deadline for papers!   8th Feb.
