ICAD '96: The Third INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON AUDITORY DISPLAY Palo Alto, California November 4-6, 1996 Co-sponsored by Santa Fe Institute and Xerox PARC Continuing the work of the successful ICAD '92 and '94 meetings, ICAD '96 will be held November 4-6, 1996 in Palo Alto, California, USA. 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 these encompass. Like its predecessors, ICAD '96 will be a single-track conference. Attendance is open to all, with no membership or affiliation requirements. Complete and current information regarding ICAD in general and ICAD'96 in particular may be found at REGISTRATION Conference registration fees include all sessions, special events, and conference proceedings. The fee for corporate and academic participants is $300 ($325 after September 15). The fee for students and postdoctoral fellows is $150 ($175 after September 15). The conference fee includes breakfast and lunch for three days in addition to the conference dinner and other special events. Cancellations received by October 15 will receive full refunds. There will be a $25 processing fee for cancellations received after that date. To register, print the registration form at the bottom of this message and send it to: Rich Gold Xerox PARC 3333 Coyote Hill Road Palo Alto CA 94304 (415) 812-5573 (ICAD phone line) (415) 812-5574 (ICAD fax line) The ICAD phone and fax line will become live/active on August 12th. DETAILS AND ARRANGEMENTS The conference hotel is the: Holiday Inn Palo Alto-Stanford 625 El Camino Real Palo Alto, CA 94301 (415) 328-2800 (415) 327-7362 (fax) The conference rate is $129(single)/$139(double) plus tax per night. To make reservations, call 1 800 874-3516 and request the ICAD (International Conference on Auditory Display) rate. The hotel does not provide shuttle service to/from regional airports. They suggest arranging transport on the Santa Clara Airporter. The fare from San Francisco International Airport is $17 one-way. You can call the shuttle service at 415-771-7710 to arrange transport in advance, or simply call the shuttle upon arriving at the airport. Students interested in less expensive accommodations may want to stay at the nearby Mermaid Inn for $64 (assuming double occupancy) a night. The hotel information is: Mermaid Inn 727 El Camino Real Menlo Park, CA 94025 (415) 323-9481 It is possible to fly into San Jose airport as Palo Alto is about equidistant from SF and SJ airports. SJ is also somewhat more convenient as it's smaller. However, in general the cheapest airfares probably go through San Francisco. NOTE: Since the conference takes place over U.S. Election Day, U.S. participants will want to obtain absentee ballots. CONFERENCE CHAIRS: Steve Frysinger, James Madison University Gregory Kramer, CLARITY, Santa Fe Institute STEERING COMMITTEE Rich Gold/Beth Mynatt, Xerox PARC Steve Frysinger, James Madison University Gregory Kramer, CLARITY, Santa Fe Institute Beth Wenzel, NASA Ames Research Center ============================================================ The Santa Fe Institute The focus of the Santa Fe Institute is research on complex systems. This work encompasses an extraordinary range of topics normally studied in seemingly disparate fields. Natural systems displaying complex adaptive behavior range upwards from DNA through cells and evolutionary systems to human societies. The dynamics of complex systems are difficult to comprehend and even more difficult to communicate. Data visualization--and more recently data sonification--are emerging as crucial tools for the comprehension and communication of complex systems data. Xerox Palo Alto Research Center The Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) performs pioneering research that covers a broad spectrum of research fields ranging from electronic materials and device research through computer-based systems and software, to research into work practices and technologies in use. The center's mission is to pursue those technologies that relate to Xerox's current and emerging businesses. Located in the Stanford University Industrial Park in the heart of Silicon Valley, PARC was charged upon its founding in 1970 to be the "architect of the information age." Since then it has delivered into use such significant pieces of the current information infrastructure as laser printers, graphical user interfaces, object-oriented programming languages, and Ethernet local area networks. PARC has contributed to user interfaces, electronic components, embedded software and architectures for each new line of Xerox copiers, printers and systems reprographics products. ============================================================ Complete and current information regarding ICAD in general and ICAD'96 in particular may be found at Address general inquiries to: Dr. Steven P.
