About ICAD Workshops and Tutorial Sessions:
ICAD workshops and tutorials provide in-depth opportunities for conference attendees to discuss and explore important aspects of the field of auditory display with like-minded researchers and practitioners. Sessions can range from applications and programming methodologies to interdisciplinary research skills, emerging research areas, and challenge problems. Workshop and tutorials topics include but are not limited to:
- Auditory displays in assistive technologies
- Interactive and model-based sonification
- Auditory data mining
- Combining speech and sound in user interfaces
Recycling auditory displays
- Sonic interaction with artifacts
- Sonification tools and techniques
- Applied use of head-related transfer functions for 3D audio
- Auditory display organization and design principles
- Research methods for evaluating auditory displays
Proposals should be about one page in length and should include the following:
- Title, brief abstract, outline of objectives (e.g., tutorial syllabus, organized discussion, presentations, submissions, etc.), relevance for ICAD attendees
- Proposed duration (full day or half day)
- Invited speakers (if any)
- List of organizers, a designated contact person, and contact information for all organizers (address, email, and phone)
- Technical requirements and space requirements
Workshop and tutorial proposals should be submitted via email to icad2014_workshops@xxxxxxxx
by 21 February 2014. Proposal acceptance decisions will be notified by 21 March 2014.
An advance decision can be requested if proposers would like extra time to organize their session. Workshop and tutorial organizers will be expected to work with the conference committee, issue calls for participation, gather and review submissions (if appropriate) and decide upon the final program for their session.

First held in 1992, ICAD is an annual international forum for the exchange of research and practices on the use of sound to convey information. The conference is unique in its primary focus on auditory displays and interdisciplinary issues related to their use. Like its predecessors, ICAD 2014 will be a single-track conference, open to all, with no membership or affiliation requirements.
