Audio Mostly 2007 – 2nd Conference on Interaction with Sound
September 27 - 28, 2007
hosted by the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT
CALL FOR PAPERS
Audio in all its forms – music, sound effects, or dialogue - holds
tremendous potential to engage, convey narrative, inform, dramatize and
enthrall. However, in computer-based environments, for example games,
nowadays the interaction abilities through and with sound are still
underrepresented. The Audio Mostly Conference provides a venue to
explore and promote this untapped potential of audio by bringing
together audio experts, content creators, interaction designers, and
behavioral researchers. Our area of interest covers new sound
applications that demand or allow for some kind of interactive response
from their listener, particularly in scenarios where screens and
keyboards are unavailable, unsuitable or disturbing. This area implies
cognitive research and psychology, as well as technological innovations
in audio analysis, processing and rendering. The aim is to both describe
and push the boundaries of sound-based interaction in various domains,
such as gaming, serious gaming, education, entertainment, safety and
We ask researchers, composers, game developers, audio engineers, etc.
