Workshop PQS - Perceptual Quality of Systems - Dresden, Germany

On behalf of the organizing committee of the Third International Workshop on Perceptual Quality of Systems (PQS), we would like to invite you to attend this exciting event that will happen in Dresden, September 6-8, 2009 (http://www.ias.et.tu-dresden.de/akustik/PQS2010/).


Third International Workshop on Perceptual Quality of Systems is a direct successor to the successful workshop series inaugurated in Herne in 2003, and in Berlin in 2006.


The quality of systems which address human perception is difficult to describe. An engineering approach to quality includes the consideration of how a system is perceived by its users, and how the needs and expectations of the users develop. Thus, quality assessment and prediction have to take the relevant human perception and judgement factors into account.


The workshop is intended to provide an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas between both academic and industrial researchers working on different aspects of perceptual quality of systems. Papers are invited which refer to methodological aspects of quality and usability assessment and evaluation, the underlying perception and judgment processes, as well as to particular technologies, systems or services.


Contributions are welcomed in (but not limited to) the following areas (please note that in all of these areas both theoretical and empirical approaches are encouraged):


Methodologies and Methods of Quality Assessment and Evaluation

Metrology: Test Design and Scaling

Quality of Speech and Music

Quality of Multimodal Perception

Perceptual Quality vs. Usability

Semio-Acoustics and -Perception

Quality and Usability of

  • Speech Technology Devices
  • Telecommunication Systems and Services
  • Multi-Modal User Interfaces
  • Virtual Reality

Product-Sound Quality


The workshop will take place in the “Bischof Bennohaus”, a villa-like conference center located in Bautzen, near Dresden, Germany. All participants will be accommodated in this center. Accomodation and meals are included in the workshop fees. A shuttle bus service will collect participants from downtown Dresden and transport them to the workshop venue.


We invite your papers, posters and demonstrations on these topics, and look forward to seeing you in Dresden in September 2010.
