Immersive audio systems are ubiquitous and range from macro-systems installed in cinemas, theatres and concert halls to micro-systems for domestic, in-car entertainment, VR/AR and mobile platforms. New developments in human-computer interaction, in particular head and body motion tracking and artificial intelligence, are paving the way for adaptive and intelligent audio technologies that promote audio personalisation and heightened levels of immersion. Interactive audio systems can now readily utilise non-tactile data such as listener location, orientation, gestural control and even biometric feedback such as heart rate or skin conductance, to intelligently adjust immersive sound output. Such systems offer new creative possibilities for a diverse range of applications from virtual and augmented reality through to automotive audio and beyond. This opens up exciting new opportunities for artists and audio producers to create compelling immersive experiences. This three-day conference will explore the unique space where interactive technologies and immersive audio meet and aims to exploit the synergies between these fields. The conference will include keynote lectures, technical paper sessions, tutorials and workshops, as well as technological and artistic demonstrations of immersive and interactive audio.
All submissions should have a clear connection with immersive and interactive audio. We encourage multidisciplinary approaches to the area and an exploration of the interactions between theory and practice.
Submissions may be in the form of paper and demonstration proposals. Papers may be presented in the oral sessions or as a poster, at the discretion of the committee, although authors may indicate a preference. Authors should submit a full paper for peer review from the outset. All proposals are to be submitted at http://www.aes.org/2019iia_authors by 1st October 2018 (submission site open shortly). Acceptance of papers will be determined by the committee based on peer review. Accepted authors will be notified by 1st December 2018. Final manuscripts of a maximum of 10 pages (3000 words) must be submitted by 15th January 2019. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries about potential submissions. Workshop and tutorial proposals should be emailed directly to email@example.com by 1st Nov 2018, including title, abstract (60 to 120 words), and précis (500 to 750 words). If accepted, these will also be included in the proceedings.
A reduced registration fee will be available for authors. At least one author of each contribution must pay to register and attend to present. The authors’ rate will be available for any author wishing to attend the conference.
Papers will be published in the AES E-Library no earlier than 10 days before the conference start date.
