International Conference on Spatial Audio 2011
Initial Announcement (April 14 2011) *
November 10 – 13, Hochschule für Musik, 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.
