The 2nd Web Audio Conference (WAC) will be held April 4-6, 2016 at Georgia Tech in Atlanta. WAC is an international conference dedicated to web audio technologies and applications. The conference addresses research, development, design, and standards concerned with emerging audio-related web technologies such as Web Audio API, Web RTC, WebSockets and Javascript. WAC welcomes industry engineers, R&D scientists, academic researchers, artists, and students from fields such as web development, music technology, computer music, and audio applications. The first Web Audio Conference was held in January 2015 at IRCAM and Mozilla in Paris, France. WAC 2016 is sponsored by the Georgia Tech College of Architecture and by Dolby.

The keynote speakers for WAC 2016 are Helen Thorington and Frank Melchior. The conference will feature over 75 papers, posters, talks, demos, artworks, and musical performances, a plenary session with the W3C working group on the Web Audio API, a hack session, tutorials, and related activities.

The conference takes place at Georgia Tech, a major research university located in midtown Atlanta, with convenient access from Hartsfield-Jackson Airport (the busiest passenger airport in the world). The conference venue, Georgia Tech's Academy of Medicine, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and houses the chandelier seen in the movie "Gone with the Wind." The venue is a short walk to the Georgia Tech campus, dining, shopping, nightlife, the conference hotel, and the city's main subway line.

Registration rates are as follows:
Early Bird Registration (by February 15th):
