      In this paper, we explore how sonic features can be used to represent network data structures that define relationships between elements. Representations of networks are pervasive in contemporary life (social networks, ...
    • Evaluating the magnitude estimation approach for designing sonification mapping topologies 

      Ferguson, Jamie; Brewster, Stephen (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2019-06)
      A challenge in sonification design is mapping data parameters onto acoustic parameters in a way that aligns with a listener's mental model of how a given data parameter should sound. Studies have used the psychophysical ...
    • Interactive real-time concatenative synthesis in virtual reality 

      Moore, Carl; Brent, William (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2019-06)
      This paper presents a new platform for interactive concatenative synthesis designed for virtual reality and proposes further applications for immersive audio tools and instruments. TimbreSpace VR is an extension ofWilliam ...

      The current position paper discusses vital challenges related to the user experience design in unsupervised, highly automated cars. These challenges are: (1) how to avoid motion sickness, (2) how to ensure users' trust in ...
    • Testing spatial aspects of auditory salience 

      Podwinska, Zuzanna; Fazenda, Bruno M.; Davies, William J. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2019-06)
      Auditory salience describes the extent to which sounds attract the listener's attention. So far, there have not been any published studies testing if the location of sound relative to the listener influences its salience. ...
    • The alchemy of chaos: A sound art sonification of a year of Tourette’s episodes 

      Mitchell, Thomas J.; Thom, Jess; Pountney, Matthew; Hyde, Joseph (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2019-06)
