This year’s Keynote Speaker is Stefania Serafin. She is a professor in sonic interaction design at Aalborg University Copenhagen. She received a PhD from CCRMA, Stanford University in 2004 and has been working at Aalborg University since. Serafin is the president of the Sound and Music Computing Association. The title of her Keynote Address is, "Inclusive Sonic Interactions."

Sonic interaction design is a fertile field of investigation at the intersection of sound and music computing and interaction design. At Aalborg University I have been designing, together with several collaborators, sonic interactions for different applications, ranging from physics-based simulations of musical instruments and everyday objects, new interfaces for musical expression, cultural heritage, walking and rehabilitation, learning and training, as well as virtual and augmented reality. In this talk I will present an overview of these activities, with a focus on those who contribute to engage a wider and younger audience in sound, music and technology.
