    • 3D real-time auralization with separate rendering of direct sound, reflections and directional late reverberation 

      Lesoinne, S; Werner, N; Embrechts, J. J. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      Auralization in room acoustics is created by the convolution of an anechoic audio signal with the RIR (room impulse response), either computed or measured at the receiver location. This paper addresses the directional RIRs ...
    • An architecture for presenting auditory awareness information in pervasive computing environments 

      Kainulainen, A.; Turunen, M.; Hakulinen, J. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      In this paper we present how awareness can be supported in pervasive computing environments through auditory information. We introduce an application which uses soundscapes to support people's awareness of each other's ...
    • A malleable device with applications to sonification-based data exploration 

      Milczynski, M.; Hermann, T.; Bovermann, T.; Ritter, H. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      This article introduces a novel human computer interaction device, developed in the scope of a Master's Thesis. The device allows continuous localized interaction by providing a malleable interaction surface. Diverse ...
    • Auditory alarms, medical standards, and urgency 

      Sanderson, P.; Eunice, S.; Philippe, L.; Alexandra, W. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      A newly-released international standard for medical equipment alarms, IEC 60601-1-8, incorporates a long-standing suggestion that alarms should indicate their source through distinctive melodies. In this paper we examine ...
    • An interactive approach for teaching information sonification 

      Beilharz, K; Ferguson, S; Song, H. J.; Cabrera, D. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      Teaching sonification is interdisciplinary and multifaceted. It includes areas such as information graphing, auditory parameters for representation, psychoacoustics affected by the context and combination of parameters, ...
    • Investigating concurrent auditory icon recognition 

      Brazil, E.; Fernstroem, M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      This paper an investigation of the identification of concurrently presented auditory icons1. The motivation for this work was to get a better understanding of the identification of an everyday sound scene. We collected a ...
    • Cognitive-map forming of the blind in virtual sound environment 

      Ohuchi, M.; Iwaya, Y.; Suzuki, Y. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      This paper describes a new assistive technology for sightless persons based on a virtual auditory display (VAD). This system is intended to encourage its users to improve their map-forming skills and use them more efficiently ...
    • Detection and localization of speech in the presence of competing speech signals 

      Simpson, B. D.; Brungart, D. S.; Iyer, N.; Gilkey, R. H.; Hamil, J. T. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
