Call for participation: ICAD 2011 – Budapest

Theme „Fantastic sounds – sounds fantastic!”

This year’s theme emphasizes that effective uses of sound for informative purposes involve a give-and-take between creative and functional auditory objectives as well as between the display and the listener. We invite the global ICAD community to accentuate this perspective in their work, and authors are especially encouraged to consider how they can incorporate auditory display into the presentation of their papers, for instance, by including auditory annotations and examples of the sounds used in their efforts and/or by sonifying their results. Just as it would be unusual for presentations of papers on graphics not to include some visual artefacts, we are aiming for it to be the norm that ICAD paper presentations employ sound in addition to the voice of the speaker.
