sorry for the slightly off-topic post, but since spatial audio has been
a frequent topic lately, i think some people here might be interested.
linux or FLOSS won't be exactly in the limelight, but yours truly will
make sure there are at least 2-3 boxes with your favourite OS and audio
tools humming along in various places. oh, and you might come early and
watch a few high-end mixing consoles boot - the startup screen will
bring tears to your eyes (as will the price tag, unfortunately :)
unfortunately, there will have to be an admission fee, which we haven't
decided on yet. but we're trying to keep it reasonable. don't shout at
me when it turns out to be a bit more costly than LAC, though...
ICSA 2011 - International Conference on Spatial Audio
November 10 - 13, Hochschule für Musik, Detmold
Verband Deutscher Tonmeister (VDT), in cooperation with
Deutsche Gesellschaft für Akustik e.V. (DEGA), and
European Acoustics Association (EAA).
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Malte Kob
Neustadt 22, 52756 Detmold
The International Conference on Spatial Audio 2011 takes place from
November 10 to 13 at Detmold University of Music.
This expert‘s summit will examine current systems for multichannel audio
reproduction and complementing recording techniques, and discuss their
respective strengths and weaknesses.
Wavefield synthesis systems, a higher-order Ambisonics array, as well as
5.1/7.1 installations in diverse acoustic environments will be available
for comparative listening tests during the conference.
Structured plenary talks, paper and poster sessions will revisit
fundamentals and present latest research.
A series of workshops will be dedicated to practical implementations of
spatial sound capture and playback methods, and their esthetic and
psychoacoustical implications for music perception.
Concerts that include music specially arranged for the conference will
let you experience various spatial sound systems in "live" conditions.
Call for papers and music:
Your contributions are welcome, either as presentations, posters, or
workshops. Submissions will undergo a review process, and accepted
contributions will be published in the conference proceedings.
The conference language is English.
We are planning structured sessions on the following topics:
* Multichannel stereo
* Wave field synthesis
* Higher-order Ambisonics / spherical acoustics
* 3D systems
* Binaural techniques
An additional session will be dedicated to related miscellaneous
contributions, such as hybrid systems and perception/evaluation of
spatial music reproduction.
