Call for Student Volunteers


ICAD '97:
The Fourth
International Conference on Auditory Display
Palo Alto, California
Dates: November 2-5, 1997

Sponsored by:
Xerox Palo Alto Research Center

Continuing the work of the successful ICAD '92, '94, and '96 meetings,
ICAD '97 will be held on November 2-5, 1997 in Palo Alto, California,
USA. 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 '97 will be a single-track conference. Attendance
is open to all, with no membership or affiliation requirements.

We hope to be able to support three student volunteers this year at
ICAD '97. In return for helping the conference run smoothly,
volunteers will receive free registration. In some cases, travel
assistance may be available. If you are a undergraduate or graduate
student and you are interested in volunteering at ICAD '97, please
submit the following information no later than by Friday, September 26th:

- your name, affliation, contact information, email address

International Community for Auditory Display

ICAD '97, is a program of the International Community for Auditory
Display. ICAD is a not-for-profit corporation created to support
research, education and community formation in the emerging field of
auditory display. The primary projects of ICAD are the conferences, the
listserve (icad-request@santafe.edu) and the ICAD Web site
(http://www.santafe.edu/http://www.santafe.edu/~icad). Since auditory display researchers come
from a wide variety of disciplinary, professional, and geographical
backgrounds, ICAD seeks, above all, to facilitate communication across
boundaries. A membership organization founded in 1996, ICAD welcomes
participation in its programs and governance. For more information
about ICAD please contact Gregory Kramer at kramer@listen.com.

Xerox Palo Alto Research Center

The Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) performs
pioneering research that covers a broad spectrum of research
fields ranging from electronic materials and device research
through computer-based systems and software, to research
into work practices and technologies in use. The center's
mission is to pursue those technologies that relate to
Xerox's current and emerging businesses.

Located in the Stanford University Industrial Park in the
heart of Silicon Valley, PARC was charged upon its founding
in 1970 to be the "architect of the information age." Since
then it has delivered into use such significant pieces of
the current information infrastructure as laser printers,
graphical user interfaces, object-oriented programming
languages, and Ethernet local area networks. PARC has
contributed to user interfaces, electronic components,
embedded software and architectures for each new line of
Xerox copiers, printers and systems reprographics products.
