[ Apologies for cross-postings. Please note that the submission deadline 
has been extended to 16/05/2014 ]

You are invited to contribute to this half-day workshop on Sonification 
for Sports and Performance, part of the upcoming International 
Conference on Auditory Displays (

Sunday, June 22, 2014 9:00AM to 12:00 noon

This workshop focuses on the growing body of work on Sonification for 
use in sports, exercise and performance in drama and related 
applications.Current sonifications for sports and performance will be 
discussed, and the session will provide a forum for examining methods, 
techniques and tools do and do not work across different sports and 
performance applications, from requirements gathering through to final 
evaluation.Additionally, a roadmap for future research in design and 
evaluation practice, methodologies and theories will be developed. 
Workshop participants will have an opportunity to discuss their 
experiences, present new findings and analyse the commonalities and 
differences in developing sonifications for applications in this area.

Topics include but are not limited to the following:

1)Techniques for requirements gathering. The environments and aerobic 
nature of the situations in which these systems are often to be deployed 
can pose challenges for requirements capture.

2)Rapid prototyping and formative evaluation of sonification systems. 
Techniques and tools for the rapid construction of sonifications can be 
key to user engagement and participation in the development process. 
Further, most users do not possess a ready-made vocabulary to describe 
sounds or discuss alterations to a sonified display. What approaches 
have proved useful or inadequate in addressing the need for an effective 
iterative development approach when synthesising these systems.

3)Evaluation. The environments within which sports or performances take 
place present challenges to effective evaluation. In addition, the 
higher the level of competition into which supporting technologies are 
introduced, the more likely they are to be subject to constraints or 
rules which reduce or entirely prevent their use. To what extent are 
these issues presenting barriers to current research? To what extent can 
simulations provide an answer? Are there strategies or techniques that 
have been used to overcome or avoid these challenges?

Submissions in one or more of the following categories are encouraged:
- Position paper; max. 2 pages in length
- Case study or work in progress paper; max. 2 pages in length
- Poster, Demo or video of technologies, case studies, usage behaviour, 

Submissions should be emailed to Oussama Metatla at [log in to unmask]

Submission Deadline *EXTENDED*: 16^th May 2014
Notification of Acceptance: 21^st May 2014
*Submission Format:**Submissions should be prepared according to the 
ICAD 2014 Template <>. **

Workshop Outcome:**The workshop papers and posters will be included in 
the electronic media that contains the conference proceedings.**
