ICAD Conference 2016

2016 International Conference on Auditory Display

ICAD 2016 Focusses on Sonic Information Design. Like other design disciplines, Sonic Information Design has the aspiration that artificial sounds may be designed to make the world a better place. Sonic Information Design takes a synergetic user-centred view of the relationship between artefacts, those that are affected by them, and the social contexts in which they occur. A Design orientation pays particular attention to the phenomenology of user experience–including physical, cognitive, emotional, and aesthetic issues; the relationship between form, function, and content; and emerging concepts such as fun, playfulness and design futures. Practice-based research is considered as a generative process of exploration, speculation and discovery, with outcomes that can be provisional, contingent and aspirational, while aiming for richer, more situated understandings that lead to the advancement of knowledge and the proliferation of new realities.
