ICAD2008
CALL FOR PAPERS

The 14th International Conference on Auditory Display (ICAD)
IRCAM, Paris, France
June 24-27, 2008
http://icad08.ircam.fr

ICAD 2008 will take place from the 24th to 27th, between the Agora  
IRCAM's festival (June 5-20) and Acoustics 08 (June 29 – July 4)

IRCAM, Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique, is  
pleased to host the 14th annual International Conference on Auditory  
Display (ICAD). This conference will address concepts, methods and  
tools of sound production involved in the process of “designing  
sounds” in an interactive context. Beside topics traditionally  
addressed by ICAD (auditory warning, 3D audio display, etc. ) we  
would like to take the opportunity of ICAD being held at IRCAM to  
highlight the relation between research in auditory perception,  
computer music and sound design in order to contribute to a global  
framework of computer aided sound design.

A number of special sessions have been planned:

     * Sounds of objects and events: Perception, Production, and Use  
in auditory displays
     * Sound Design tools & technologies
     * Auditory Warnings: toward a new design and a better understanding
     * Aesthetics of sound objects
     * Interacting with sound in VR or AR – Interaction paradigms –  
Cognitive aspects
     * 3D Audio Display – Technologies and expected ergonomic benefits
     * Audio Only Gaming
     * Browsing with sound

Other topics for ICAD include but are not limited to:

     * Accessibility
     * Applications
     * Design theory and methods
     * Evaluation and usability
     * Human Factors
     * Sonification Techniques
     * Psychology, Cognition, Perception
