Dear ICAD Community, 

On behalf of the ICAD Board, it is with great deliberation that we inform you that the physical meeting for ICAD 2020 in Gainesville, Florida from June 7-11 2020 has been postponed until June of 2021. The ICAD Board has thoroughly considered the health, well-being, and safety of our attendees, and ultimately this was the best choice during these unpredictable times. 

For authors, the submitted papers will officially be withdrawn without any review (no papers were sent to reviewers or otherwise viewed by the program committee). ICAD will be held next June at the University of Florida, so we are essentially shifting everything back by one year.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of the ICAD 2020 organizing team. We hope that you will be with us for ICAD 2021 in Gainesville, FL.

Thank you,

Kyla McMullen
ICAD 2021 General Chair

ICAD 2021

Sound is used in a wide variety of applications to alert listeners to the status of a person or environment. At ICAD 2021, we want to highlight sonification work that is used to maintain awareness in some capacity (outside navigation, hospitals, air traffic control, etc). Papers are not limited to this theme, as we will value and embrace all types of submissions, including papers, posters, multimedia (videos/audios), demos, and concert pieces.

First held in 1992, ICAD is a highly interdisciplinary academic conference with relevance to researchers, practitioners, musicians, and students interested in the design of sounds to support tasks, improve performance, guide decisions, augment awareness, and enhance experiences. It is unique in its singular focus on auditory displays and the array of perception, technology, and application areas that this encompasses. Like its predecessors, ICAD 2021 will be a single-track conference, open to all, with no membership or affiliation requirements.
