Sonic Discourse—Expression through Sound
The International Community for Auditory Display is pleased to announce that ICAD 2010, the 16th International Conference on Auditory Display, will be held in Washington, DC at the George Washington University, June 9-15, 2010.
June 9 and 10 will be dedicated to pre-conference activities, including workshops, tutorials, and symposia and ICAD's "ThinkTank," the annual doctoral consortium for students doing Honors, Masters, or Doctoral projects in auditory display or related areas.
The main portion of the conference will run from June 11-15. In keeping with its theme Sonic Discourse—Expression through Sound, the conference will feature a relaxed day of demonstrations and poster presentations, and an evening concert of sonifications and a composition commissioned for the conference. In addition to paper sessions, the conference will also include a reception, plenary talks, and a banquet, and will close with ICAD's annual open mic session. Furthermore, there will be several opportunities in the overall schedule for visitors to Washington, DC to enjoy and explore the city.
ICAD 2010 is being organized jointly by the George Washington University, VRSonic, Inc., the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, and the University of Maryland in conjunction with the International Community for Auditory Display.
For students and attendees hoping to economize, the conference is arranging for a block of GWU summer housing to be made available on a first-come-first-served basis at a substantial savings over commercial rates.
We look forward to seeing you in Washington, DC in June!
