Hello all,

Apologies for any cross-posting. Please see below the call for
contributions for the AES International Conference on Immersive and
Interactive Audio in York next Spring. Hope to see you there.

All the best,




- Creating the next dimension of sound experience -

Dates: March 27-29, 2019

Location: York, UK


Immersive audio systems are ubiquitous and range from macro-systems
installed in cinemas, theatres and concert halls to micro-systems for
domestic, in-car entertainment, VR/AR and mobile platforms. New
developments in human-computer interaction, in particular head and body
motion tracking and artificial intelligence, are paving the way for
adaptive and intelligent audio technologies that promote audio
personalisation and heightened levels of immersion. Interactive audio
systems can now readily utilise non-tactile data such as listener location,
orientation, gestural control and even biometric feedback such as heart
rate or skin conductance, to intelligently adjust immersive sound output.
Such systems offer new creative possibilities for a diverse range of
applications from virtual and augmented reality through to automotive audio
and beyond. This opens up exciting new opportunities for artists and audio
producers to create compelling immersive experiences. This three-day
conference will explore the unique space where interactive technologies and
immersive audio meet and aims to exploit the synergies between these
fields. The conference will include keynote lectures, technical paper
sessions, tutorials and workshops, as well as technological and artistic
demonstrations of immersive and interactive audio.

Proposed Topics


- 3-D spatial perception

- Auditory attention and engagement

- Auditory interaction

- Cross modal perception

- Moving sounds and moving listeners

- Metrics for and evaluation of immersive and interactive audio


- Intelligent audio systems

- Interactive production tools for immersive audio

- Immersive audio recording techniques

- Motion tracked binaural and HRTF processing

- Biophysiological feedback as a control signal

- Spatial audio signal processing

- Spatial reproduction methods

- Streaming of immersive and interactive audio

- Virtual acoustics

Sound Design

- Audio for games

- Sound design for virtual and augmented reality

- Immersive audio effects

- Interactive music composition and generation

- Immersive sound design for film, TV, theatre, games and interactive media

- Narratives and workflows for interactive audio

- Object and scene based production and reproduction

- Sonic interaction design

- Virtual auditory environments


All submissions should have a clear connection with immersive and
interactive audio. We encourage multidisciplinary approaches to the area
and an exploration of the interactions between theory and practice.

Submissions may be in the form of paper and demonstration proposals. Papers
may be presented in the oral sessions or as a poster, at the discretion of
the committee, although authors may indicate a preference. Authors should
submit a full paper for peer review from the outset. All proposals are to
be submitted at http://www.aes.org/2019iia_authors by 1st October 2018
(submission site open shortly). Acceptance of papers will be determined by
the committee based on peer review. Accepted authors will be notified by
1st December 2018. Final manuscripts of a maximum of 10 pages (3000 words)
must be submitted by 15th January 2019. Please contact
***@aes.org if you have any queries about potential submissions.
Workshop and tutorial proposals should be emailed directly to
***@aes.org by 1st Nov 2018, including title, abstract (60 to
120 words), and précis (500 to 750 words). If accepted, these will also be
included in the proceedings.


A reduced registration fee will be available for authors. At least one
author of each contribution must pay to register and attend to present. The
authors’ rate will be available for any author wishing to attend the


Papers will be published in the AES E-Library no earlier than 10 days
before the conference start date.
