At the present time, expanding spatial audio reproduction to the vertical plane seems to be the next logical step from an engineering point of view. The consequence is that new transmission formats, reproduction and production techniques, and processing methods are required. Before starting the discussion from a technical point of view, we propose to determine applications and environments for such new reproduction systems. The aim of this workshop is to ask and discuss the six W’s of information gathering in terms of spatial audio with height: Who is it about? What will happen? Where will it take place? When will it take place? Why will it happen? How will it happen? The workshop will bring together experts of different approaches and use cases where spatial audio reproduction with height is considered being important now and in the future.
