This year’s theme is Sonification // Spatialization, a blending of ICAD’s expertise in sonification with EMPAC’s expertise in spatialized audio. Spatialization offers sonification additional dimensions for conveying information. EMPAC’s state-of-the-art spatial audio systems include a 512-channel wave field synthesis array with the highest spatial aliasing frequency in the world and multiple permanently installed fourth-order ambisonic arrays. The conference will host a special session on spatialization in sonification as well as demonstrations of some of EMPAC’s systems and capabilities over the course of the week.
Submission title, authors, and brief abstract are due by March 8 / 22. Completed submissions are due by March 31.
