ICAD 2023 Sonification for the Masses
@Linköping University, Norrköping, Sweden
26th – 30th June 2023

Sonification is the use of non-speech audio to convey information or represent and
perceptualize data. The last thirty years of sonification research have shown that
auditory perception has benefits as an alternative or complement to visualization
or interaction. Despite this, sonification is not yet widely spread as a useful tool.
Let ICAD 2023 demonstrate that sonification can be a commonly used tool,
designed for the masses and everyday life. Let’s demonstrate that sonification can
be accessible and understandable for everyone, for sonification researchers and
for data domain experts, as well as for the common person, regardless of whether
the research interest is in parameter mapping sonification, sound transformation,
musification, or auditory icons.

09/05/23: Information for poster presentation

Posters are made to A1 portrait size (width 594 mm, height 841 mm), prepared by the presenter in advance, and brought to the conference.

Guidelines and recommendations for making an effective academic poster are easy to find; for example, here is an online guide from the University of York that we find useful: https://subjectguides.york.ac.uk/posters

If your contribution is strongly auditory, please consider bringing a laptop and a pair of headphones to make your interactions with conference attendees during the poster presentation session even more rewarding. Tables for the laptops will be available in the poster area as needed.
