      The 22nd International Conference on Auditory Display (ICAD 2016)
      Australian National University, Canberra, July 2-July 8 2016


        Co-chairs:Dr David Worrall, Australian National University and
        Dr Stephen Barrass, University of Canberra

        Please check the conference website for updates:

ICAD is a highly interdisciplinary academic conference with relevance to 
researchers, practitioners, musicians, and students interested in the 
design of sounds to support tasks, improve performance, guide decisions, 
augment awareness, and enhance experiences. It is unique in its singular 
focus on auditory displays and the array of perception, technology, and 
application areas that this encompasses. Like its predecessors, ICAD 
2016 will be a single-track conference, open to all, with no membership 
or affiliation requirements.
ICAD 2016-the 22nd International Conference on Auditory Display-will be 
held at the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia, from 
July 2 to 8, 2016. The conference venue is the ANU School of Music, in 
the downtown centre of Canberra. Workshops and the graduate student 
ThinkTank (doctoral consortium) will be on the weekend of July 2 and 3, 
before the main conference.
Note that ICAD is back-to-back with the conference on New Interfaces for 
Musical Expression (NIME) which will be held in Brisbane the following 
week, so international attendees can attend two international 
conferences for the one trip to Australia!


The designed world is rapidly replacing the natural world. Design has 
been called the "third culture" and has been distinguished from the 
Sciences and Arts by Nigel Cross in terms of

  * /things to know/: the natural world in science, human experience in
    art, and the artificial world in design.
  * /ways of knowing/: rationality and objectivity in science,
    reflection and subjectivity in art, and imagination and practicality
    in design.
  * /ways of finding out/: experiment and analysis in science, criticism
    and evaluation in art, and modelling and synthesis in design.

This year's theme - Sonic Information Design - has the aspiration that 
artificial sounds may be designed to make the world a better place. Like 
other design disciplines, Sonic Information Design takes a synergetic 
user-centred view of the relationship between artefacts, those that are 
affected by them, and the social contexts in which they occur. A Design 
orientation pays particular attention to the phenomenology of user 
experience - including physical, cognitive, emotional, and aesthetic 
issues; the relationship between form, function, and content; and 
emerging concepts such as fun, playfulness and design futures. 
Practice-based research is considered as a generative process of 
exploration, speculation and discovery, with outcomes that can be 
provisional, contingent and aspirational, while aiming for richer, more 
situated understandings that lead to the advancement of knowledge and 
the proliferation of new realities.
Sonic Information Design draws on theoretical approaches from multiple 
disciplines to guide hypothesis testing at multiple points during an 
iterative process -what Bill Gaver calls "humble theory". Sonic 
Information Design recognises usefulness as critical for evaluating 
artefacts, and the perceptual alignment with data characteristics as 
critical for effective designs.
ICAD 2016 invites contributions that take a design approach, introduce 
design theory and apply design methods to Auditory Display and Data 
Sonification, with a view to building a conceptually robust foundation 
for Sonic Information Design.


Topics for ICAD2016 include new and emerging themes, as well as more 
traditional ICAD ones. Themes include but are not limited to:

  * Sonic Information Design
  * Stream-based Sonification and Auditory Scene Design
  * Acoustic Sonification
  * Small Data (personal, intimate) sonification and the quantised self
  * Sonification, soundscape and screensound
  * Sonification in Health and Environmental Data (soniHED)
  * Musification - sonifications and music
  * Sonification, personal fabrication and maker culture
  * Sonification in the Internet of Things
  * Auditory Data Mining and Big Data sonification
  * 3D and Spatial Audio
  * Aesthetics, Philosophy, and Culture of Auditory Displays
  * Accessibility
  * Applications
  * Design Theory and Methods
  * Evaluation and Usability
  * Human Factors and Interaction
  * Mappings from Data to Sound
  * Psychology, Cognition, Perception, and Psychoacoustics
  * Sonification and Exploration of Data through Sound
  * Sound as Art
  * Technologies and Tools

*Presentations will be organised according to four major themes:*

  * Auditory Data Mining
  * Interactive Sonication, including for sports and health.
  * Musification and Aesthetics
  * Auditory Perception, including streaming, spatialisation and
    inter/poly modality.
