ICAD 2020 

 Call for Submission of Papers, Extended Abstracts, Workshops, and Tutorials

26th International Conference on Auditory Display

University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, USA

June 7-11, 2020


Sound is used in a wide variety of applications to alert listeners to the status of a person or environment. At ICAD 2020, 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 2020 will be a single-track conference, open to all, with no membership or affiliation requirements.

ICAD 2020, the 26th International Conference on Auditory Display, will be held at the University of Florida, June 7 to 11, 2020. The graduate student ThinkTank (doctoral consortium) will be held on Sunday, June 7,  before the main conference.


The ICAD 2020 committee is seeking papers and extended abstracts that will contribute to knowledge of how sonification can support awareness in various contexts. For details on topics of interest, proposal format, submission instructions, and additional conference information please visit http://icad2020.icad.org , where details will be updated as they are made available.


ICAD workshops and tutorials provide in-depth opportunities for conference attendees to discuss and explore important aspects of the field of auditory display with like-minded researchers and practitioners. Sessions can range from applications and programming methodologies to interdisciplinary research skills, emerging research areas, and challenge problems, to sonification/compositional Maker-sessions.
