International Spatial Audio Workshop

SpACE-Net Logo

After the success of the first SpACE-Net International Spatial Audio Workshop in January 2007, we are delighted to announce our next major event, planned for Wednesday 23rd January 2008, to be held at the Music Research Centre (MRC), University of York, York, UK.  With this announcement we would like to open general registrations for the event via this website.

The general theme for the workshop is: 5.1 Surround-sound: Opportunity or Constraint? And this theme is reflected in the the guest speakers that have been invited and the new works that have been commissioned.

The day will last from 10:00 - 17:00 and will consist of invited presentations and demos from both practitioners and leading industry figures:
We have commissioned two new spatial audio works to be presented at the event (details to follow), and there will also be a poster session to highlight recent research in spatial audio from the UK and internationally.

To support the ongoing collaborative call for works sponsored by Creative special tutorial sessions will be offered by Creative audio developers during the day on the use of the ISACT toolset - this incorporates a library for building interactive spatial audio compositions into software applications.  It is strongly suggested that those interested in this call attend one of these tutorials!  More information, and the opportunity to sign-up (must be done separately to the main event as places are strictly limited!) are available in the item below.

There will be specific networking opportunities - SpACE-Net is looking to sponsor new multi-disciplinary collaborative projects over the coming year, hopefully leading to major funding applications.  To do this effectively, and to help target the people you would like to work with, once you have registered for the event, please use the Collaborator Ads to promote your interests or potential project to help facilitate initial conversations that can be followed up on the day. Alternatively you can use the forum similarly.

HHB will also be demonstrating the new Beyerdynamic Headzone portable 5.1 headphone monitoring system.

Registration is free to SpACE-Net members, who should sign-up for the event (click here and using the Sign Up option at the bottom of the item).  

Please register your interest in attending by 9th January 2008.

This SpACE-Net event is supported by Creative, HHB and Genelec.
