The Audio Engineering Society is pleased to invite sponsors to participate in the second International Conference on Audio for Virtual and Augmented Reality. The conference and exhibition will bring together a community of influential research scientists, engineers, VR and AR developers, and content providers to explore such topics as:

  • spatial audio capture, rendering, and synthesis over headphones and loudspeakers
  • binaural, ambisonics, and wave field synthesis techniques
  • 3D sound field navigation
  • HRTF modeling and derivation from optical and/or acoustic measurements
  • reverb and room acoustics synthesis
  • 3D audio mixing and content production
  • sound design for VR/AR

The three-day conference and expo will focus on the dissemination of top-level research in the field of spatial audio for virtual and augmented reality, with discussions focused on technical solutions and recommended practices. In addition to the paper sessions, key researchers, practitioners, and industry leaders will offer demonstrations, panel discussions, tutorials, and workshops.

The conference promises to be as interactive and cross-disciplinary as the field of VR and AR itself. We expect to attract talented researchers and developers who are creating the next generation of audio tools for immersive content. We are offering a variety of sponsorship packages for sponsors who’d like to engage with this highly specialized and influential group.
