  • Designing adaptive audio for autonomous driving: an industrial and academic-led design challenge 

    MacDonald, Doon (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2019-06)
    The paper discusses a design challenge around the use of adaptive audio to support experience and uptake of autonomous driving. The paper outlines a collaboration that is currently being established between Researchers at ...
  • Exploring the interface effect in distant sonification 

    Emsley, Iain (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2019-06)
    I introduce ongoing research into the method that I am calling distant sonification as a response to understanding abstractions created through computational reading. My aim is to explore the interface effect and situate ...
  • Surfing in sound: Sonification of hidden web tracking 

    Lutz, Otto Hans-Martin; Kroger, Jacob Leon; Schneiderbauer, Manuel; Hauswirth, Manfred (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2019-06)
    Web tracking is found on 90% of common websites. It allows online behavioral analysis which can reveal insights to sensitive personal data of an individual. Most users are not aware of the amout of web tracking happening ...
  • Subjective elicitation of listener-perspective-dependent spatial attributes in a rerverberant room, using the repertory grid technique 

    Băcilă, Bogdan Ioan; Lee, Hyunkook (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2019-06)
    Spatial impression is a widely researched topic in concert hall acoustics and spatial audio display. In order to provide the listener with plausible spatial impression in virtual and augmented reality applications, especially ...
