In association with the 1997 ICAD conference, an interdisciplinary group of researchers gathered at the request of the National Science Foundation, to plan the writing of a document that would summarise the current status of sonification research and provide an agenda for future research. The present discussion will provide an overview of the issues contained in that document as well as the process through which it was developed. Opportunities for informal discussion of these issues among the ICAD community and representatives of the White Paper committee will be provided at this session.

The presentation and discussion of this report will take place over lunch on Monday 2nd November.
