Call For Papers in PDF format

ICAD 2001 will be held between 29th of July - 1st of August 2001 at Helsinki University of Technology.

ICAD is a forum for presenting research on the use of sound to display data, monitor systems, and provide enhanced user interfaces for computers and virtual reality systems. It is unique in its singular focus on auditory displays, and the array of perception, technology, design and application areas that these encompass. Like its predecessors, ICAD 2001 will be a single-track conference. Attendance is open to all, with no membership or affiliation requirements.


There are two categories for papers: long papers of 10 pages and 30 minutes presentation time, and short papers of 6 pages and 20 minutes. Accepted posters will have 6 pages in the proceedings.

Submissions should consist of a 2-3 pages extended abstract for short papers and posters and a 4-5 pages extended abstract for long papers. Since audio demonstrations are an essential part of ICAD, the abstract should include a description of the prospective audio demonstrations. The templates for submissions are available at templates.html.

Papers are sought covering all aspects of auditory display. Work in progress papers are also acceptable. Example topics include, but are not limited to:

The papers from this conference will be published in the proceedings and CD-ROM. The CD-ROM will include also sound examples. The conference organization will also reserve the right to publish the papers online although copyright will be retained by the author.

All accepted papers must be presented by an author at the conference. If none of the authors of an accepted paper has registered to the conference, the paper may not be published in the proceedings nor the CD-ROM.


Demo submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their innovation, relevance, scientific contribution, and potential logistic constraints. Commercial products are eligible, but sales and marketing activities are not appropriate. (NOTE: Please be prepared to provide your own equipment/computers for your demonstration, if you need special facilities. We can provide standard equipment.)
