SAMD 2007: Spatial Audio for Mobile Devices

Workshop in conjunction with MobileHCI, September 9 2007, Singapore

As the world and its population move towards ubiquity, high tech mobile
devices continuously decrease in size, leaving users to interact with small
screens. Thus the user would face difficulty in finding ways to interact
with such interfaces, and the efficiency may be reduced of his/her PDA or
mobile phone. By combining interaction with visual audio, the user interface
of the mobile device can be enhanced to provide the user with more comfort
and ease for navigation or interaction with the device.

The goal of this workshop is the promotion of spatial sound with mobile
devices to enhance user interaction with such devices. It will bring
together experts and practitioners from diverse and related fields,
exchanging ideas, interests, research studies, exposing participants to
different views and perspectives in the field of mobile human interaction
with spatial sound.

Topics of interest explored within this one-day workshop will primarily
focus on spatial sound and development of small screen interfaces. Topics
include, but are not limited to:

• Spatial sound as an interaction element in minimal attention interfaces
• Spatial sound in mobile HCI
• Auditory displays in mobile & ubiquitous user interaction
• Spatial sound for mobile users with visual disabilities
• Sound in social navigation
• Sound in mobile games
• Mobile, ubiquitous and tangible HCI in music performance
• Mobile HCI and music composition
• Spontaneous music, mobility, and audio sharing
• Mobile collaborative and distributed composition
• Mobile digital technology in music education
• Multimodal integration (visual, auditory, and haptic)

* Important dates *

Researchers and developers that want to contribute to a vivid discussion
leading to spatial audio for mobile devices are invited to submit a maximum
4 pages position paper in the ACM template format (, on above relevant topic
for the workshop, including challenges and solutions for the development of
spatial sound on small screen displays devices. Submissions should be
e-mailed as a PDF attachment on or before July 15, 2007 to
