Mobile phones have evolved in recent years from basic voice communication devices into advanced multimedia computers that are able to handle demanding signal processing tasks in real time. The use of stereo headphones or stereo speakers has enabled the mobile device to take advantage of binaural technology, which provides immersive sound experiences for a variety of applications and use cases. These applications range from stereo widening of music over 3-D ring tones to full 3-D positional audio for mobile games.

This workshop will focus on how binaural technology can be used in mobile devices, what are the future applications and the underlying technical challenges. Key industry and academic experts will discuss their perspectives on evolution of binaural technologies for mobile applications.
