Re: AUDITORY Digest - 3 Oct 2005 to 4 Oct 2005 (#2005-201)

Dear list,

According to the theory of critical band, if two frequencies fall in the same critical band, they cannot be distinguished in perception. My question is if two pure tones with the different fundamental frequencies in the same critical band, are presented at the same time, can they be distinguished? Furthermore, if such two pure tones appear separately in two different times, can they be distinguished?

Thanks a lot.

ICAD 12: First Call for Submissions

The 12th International Conference on Auditory Display
Queen Mary College University of London
19-24 June, 2006

::::::::::::::: FIRST CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS :::::::::::::::

The International Conference on Auditory Display (ICAD) is the premiere
forum for new developments in the use of sound to display information.
Areas of particular interest include sonification of data for
and monitoring purposes, aurally enhanced user interfaces, and
interactive, data-driven composition of sound.  ICAD is unique in its
singular focus on auditory displays and the range of technology, design,

application, and perceptual issues that research and practises in this
information domain encompass.  ICAD is a highly interdisciplinary
conference with relevance to university, industry and graduate students
working in areas that include psychology, psychoacoustics, media,
music, sound design, human computer interaction, accessibility, audio
technology, information and communications technology, computer games,
engineering analysis, medicine and a plethora of other application
in the arts and sciences.

ICAD 2006 will be held in London, England, in June 2006. Previous ICADs
have been held at the Santa Fe Institute, Xerox PARC, Glasgow
Georgia Tech, Helsinki University of Technology, ATR Labs in Japan,
University, Sydney Australia and Limerick University. Like its
predecessors, ICAD 2006 will be a single-track conference, open to all,
with no membership or affiliation requirements.

::::::::::::::: KEY DATES :::::::::::::::

3 February   Paper/Workshop Submission Deadline
3 March      Workshop Acceptance Notification
27 March     Paper Acceptance Notification
24 April     Paper Camera Ready Deadline

Posters / Demonstrations:

17 March    Poster/Demonstration Submission Deadline

ICAD 2006 will include a concert of submissions for which dates will be
announced shortly.

Student Think Tank:

PhD students working in areas related to the conference will be invited
make submissions for the student Think Tank, an opportunity to present
your ideas and work to date and discuss future directions with a panel
experienced ICAD researchers. The Think Tank will take place on Monday,
June the 19th 2006. Submission dates for the student Think Tank will be
announced shortly.

Main Conference Dates:

June 20th-23rd ICAD 2006

::::::::::::::: THEME : INTERDISCIPLINARITY :::::::::::::::

Researchers in Auditory Display (AD) come from a wide variety of
backgrounds, sometimes with very different perspectives. Examples of the

range of disciplines frequently represented at ICAD conferences include
psychologists, computer scientists, engineers, teachers and
of performing arts, the military, researchers in assistive technology,
environmental designers and so on.

The interdisciplinary nature of AD research presents exciting
opportunities to learn about new disciplines and work with people from
different backgrounds. On the other hand, interdisciplinary working
tough questions both within individual projects and across the
Within specific projects, typical challenges include:

* How to convey the potential benefits of Auditory Display within a
visually dominated culture
* How to facilitate communications and use of a common language across
project members with diverse backgrounds
* How to recruit project members with the requisite expertise
* How to disseminate project results most effectively and efficiently
across the communities to which they are relevant.

At the discipline level, we continue to experience difficulties in
obtaining funding due to the fact that AD research is often seen as an
interesting area, but not central to any of the disciplines of those
seeking support. As a community of researchers, we face challenges of
best to promote the field of AD to funding bodies, within corporate and
educational organisations and to the general public.

We aim both to celebrate and examine the range of issues associated with

interdisciplinary working on AD projects. The conference will include a
workshop exploring the issues outlined above, and we would be pleased to

hear of suggestions of further events that examine aspects of
interdisciplinary working within the context of AD research.

::::::::::::::: TOPICS :::::::::::::::

The topics for ICAD include but are not limited to:
* Aesthetics
* Accessibility
* Applications
* Design theory and methods
* Evaluation and usability
* Human Factors
* Sonification techniques
* Philosophy and culture
* Psychology, Cognition, Perception and Psychoacoustics
* Technologies and tools

::::::::::::::: PAPERS / SHORT PAPERS :::::::::::::::

Papers are oral presentations of substantial contribution to the field.
Full paper submissions should be up to 8 pages including images and
references; Short Paper submissions should be up to 8 pages including
images and references.  Submissions will be subject to blind review by
international panel. One of the authors must present the paper at the
conference for it to appear in the proceedings.  Full Papers and Short
Papers will have 20 and 10 minutes respectively for presenting.

Authors are strongly encouraged to consider how they can incorporate
auditory display into the presentation of their papers, for instance by
including examples of the sounds used in their work and/or by sonifying
their results. Just as it would be unusual for presentations of papers
graphics not to include visual artifacts, we are aiming for it to be the

norm that ICAD paper presentations employ sound in addition to the voice

of the speaker.

::::::::::::::: POSTERS :::::::::::::::

Posters are a forum for discussion of work-in-progress and/or
or important results that do not warrant a full paper.  Submissions
be up to 4 pages including images and references. Submissions will be
reviewed by an international panel. Posters will be presented on a
A0 size sheet during the poster session. One of the authors must present

the poster at the conference for it to appear in the proceedings.

We strongly encourage everyone who is presenting a poster to consider
giving a practical demonstration of their work. In your poster
you should provide brief details of the demonstration that you will
Descriptions of demonstrations should include details of the equipment
space you will use. We will assume that you will provide your own
equipment to perform the demonstration, though if you believe we may be
able to assist in providing standard equipment to help with this please
give details in your submission.

::::::::::::::: DEMONSTRATIONS & PERFORMANCES :::::::::::::::

In addition to demonstrations of work presented in papers and posters,
are seeking to encourage submissions of demonstrations and performances
work that doesn't fit into the usual categories of submissions. If you
a developer of sound installations, or use sound in other innovative
as the primary medium for giving performances, we encourage you to
details of a demonstration of your work under this category to the
conference. Submitted descriptions of demonstrations should explain the
nature of your demonstration, and provide details of the equipment and
space you will use. We will assume that you will provide your own
equipment to perform the demonstration, though if you believe we may be
able to assist in providing standard equipment to help with this please
give details about that in your submission.

::::::::::::::: WORKSHOPS / TUTORIALS / PANELS :::::::::::::::

Workshops/Tutorials/Panels are an opportunity to share experiences with
international community of experts. They will be held on either June the

19th or June the 24th 2006 (the days immediately before and after the

Tutorials/Workshops will run for 2-3 hours, Panels will run for 1 hour.
Proposals should be up to 4 pages including title, description, and
biographies of the presenters. Suggested topics include software and
hardware tools and systems, design and analysis of empirical
psychological and perceptual issues, design methods, practical accounts
the process of developing an auditory display - difficulties
problems solved, guidelines, etc. Proposals will be selected by an
international panel. Workshops/Tutorials/Panels that are presented at
conference will appear in the proceedings.

::::::::::::::: CONCERT :::::::::::::::

The Concert will be held at a suitable venue in the heart of London, and

will be promoted to the general public. The goal of the Concert is to
develop the crossover between music composition and auditory displays.
Concert pieces will be selected by an international panel. There will be
separate Concert Call with details of dates, suitable sound formats and
the sound system.
