ICAD '94: Preliminary Announcement We are pleased to announce that the Santa Fe Institute will support the second International Conference on Auditory Display. This notice is a preliminary announcement of the conference. A formal call for papers will be issued in September, 1993. ICAD '94 The Second International Conference on Auditory Display November, 1994 Santa Fe, New Mexico U.S.A. Sponsored by the Santa Fe Institute ICAD '94 Steering Committee Jay Jackson Gregory Kramer (Chair) Stuart Smith Elizabeth Wenzel Review Committee: James Ballas Nat Durlach William Gaver Jay Jackson Gregory Kramer Elizabeth Mynatt Carla Scaletti Julius Smith Stuart Smith Elizabeth Wenzel Sheila Williams Continuing the work of the the successful ICAD '92 meeting in October 1992, ICAD '94 will be held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, U.S.A., in November 1994. 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, and application areas that this encompasses. Research areas covered by ICAD include: * Auditory exploration of data via sonification (data controlled sound) and audification (audible playback of data samples) * Real Time monitoring of multi-variate data * Sound in Immersive Interfaces (Virtual Reality) and Teleoperation * Perceptual issues in Auditory Display * Sound in generalized computer interfaces * Technologies supporting Auditory Display creation * Data handling for Auditory Display systems * Applications of Auditory Display Included within each of these areas of inquiry are many issues concerning application, theory, hardware/software, and human factors. Integration with speech-audio implementations and with graphical display techniques and their concomitant perception issues also pose significant problems in each area. Some of the areas of application covered at ICAD '92 were: Comprehending complex, high dimensional systems Telepresence and Virtual Reality Interfaces for the vision impaired Geophysical Financial Census Chemistry data display for blind users Software Sonar Parallel computation analysis General user interfaces for vision impaired persons Monitoring background processes Medical ICAD '94 will be a single track conference. Attendance is open to all, with no membership or affiliation requirements.
