This year's theme:

SONIC INFORMATION DESIGN

The ICAD 2016 programme is available as a PDF.
It is updated from time-to-time, so please check version number in TLHC. There is also a condensed version available. There is also a locations gmap

 

Like other design disciplines, Sonic Information Design has the aspiration that artificial sounds may be designed to make the world a better place.

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.

TOPICS for ICAD 2016

In addition to more traditional ICAD themes, 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:

  • 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
