Audio Mostly 2020: Audio in Extended Realities

Audio Mostly is an interdisciplinary conference on design and experience of interaction with sound that prides itself on embracing applied theory and reflective practice. Its annual gatherings bring together thinkers and doers from academia and industry that share an interest in sonic interaction and the use of audio for interface design. This remit covers product design, auditory display, computer games and virtual environments, new musical instruments, and education and workplace tools. It further includes fields such as the psychology of sound and music, cultural studies, system engineering, and everything in between in which sonic interaction plays a role.

AM20 will call for Papers, Posters, Demos, Workshops, and Concert pieces on the topic of "Audio in Extended Realities". Attendees will expect a full program including 2.5 days of paper, poster and demo sessions, two concerts, and an exhibition on "Extended Sound design". The day before the conference, workshops will take place at the Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics (IEM). There will be a reception and catering througout the conference.

In an effort towards more sustainable and diverse meeting formats, AM20 calls for virtual participation, limited to two semi-virtual sessions. Accepted papers for these sessions may be presented via video live stream and are part of the proceedings. In general, virtual participation in AM20 is possible for a small fee and includes a live stream of all paper sessions and concerts and other virtual meeting formats.
