Dear All, please excuse multiple postings. ICAD2002 CALL FOR PARTICIPATION The 8th International Conference on Auditory Display Advanced Telecommunication Research Institute, Kyoto, Japan 2nd - 5th of July 2002 icad2002(at) ICAD 2002 will be held from the 2nd - 5th of July 2002 at Advanced Telecommunication Research Institute, Japan. ATR is located in the Keihanna-Gakkentoshi 'science city' south of Kyoto. It is closer to Nara, the ancient capital of Japan and many places rich in history and scenery. A perfect place in which to celebrate 10 years of ICAD! 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, design and application areas that these encompass. Like its predecessors, ICAD 2002 will be a single-track conference. Attendance is open to all, with no membership or affiliation requirements. PAPER/POSTER PRESENTATIONS will explore the following areas of interest... * sonification * 3D/immersive sound * perceptual aspects of 3D sound * psychoacoustics and perception * auditory displays in games and entertainment * auditory displays in PDA's, wearable computing and embedded systems * sound synthesis and digital signal processing * audio in assistive technologies * auditory icons and earcons * aesthetics of sonification and 'musification' * auditory display and art SPECIAL SESSIONS "New attempts for 3D Auditory Displays" "Optimal Encoding of Information for a Human Listener" "Virtual Acoustic Rendering Technology" "Subjective Evaluation of Spatial Sound Reproduction" SATELLITE WORKSHOPS Renkon: Workshop on Performance Rendering Systems: Today and Tomorrow, July 6, 2002. at ATR. CREST workshop on Computational Models in auditory Processing 8-9July 2002 at ATR. ART WORKS AND MUSIC There will be an installation work by Coscilia (composers and artists, Lulu Ong and Damien Lock from Singapore). There will be a concert of traditional and modern works for Shakuhachi and 'Cyber-Shakuhachi' and Koto OPEN MIC SESSIONS In the tradition of previous ICAD's, ICAD 2002 will also include at least one open mic session for impromptu presentations on work in progress, insights to share etc. Presentation time-limits will be enforced using assorted portable sonification devices (feel free to bring your own along).
