CFP: International Workshop on the Principles and Applications of Spatial Hearing (IWPASH)

Call for Papers: International Workshop on the Principles and Applications of Spatial Hearing (IWPASH)


Dear colleagues,


We are pleased to announce that the 1st International Workshop on the Principles and Applications of Spatial Hearing (IWPASH) will be held this November at Miyagi Zao Royal Hotel near Sendai, Japan.


This workshop is the first international workshop that intensively discusses principles and applications of spatial hearing. This is planned as an extension of a series of two Japanese workshops held in 2002 and 2005.

The workshop will involve about 20 lectures in a single-track program by invited speakers, and poster and demo presentations by contributors.


The IWPASH Technical Program Committee is calling for poster/demo proposals, which should be sent to iwpash@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx using the submission form below.


The content of your presentation does not need to be absolutely novel, and topics relating to spatial hearing (in a broad sense) are welcome. An on-line submission system will be also available soon at http://www.riec.tohoku.ac.jp/iwpash. Camera-ready papers of 2-4 pages (single column) for accepted proposals will be due by September 30th 2009.


We are looking forward to your participation in IWPASH.
