Call for Participation
From the phonograph to the mobile phone, sound technology has progressed steadily through the last century. However, non-musical sounds are still often
considered as byproducts of artifacts rather than being exploited for their rich intrinsic value. Sound carries information that is perceived and used, often
unconsciously, and therefore shapes the overall interaction experience.
The goal of this Workshop on Sonic Interaction Design (SID) is to group scattered research-creation efforts in sound technology, design, art, music and
psychology into a coherent body of knowledge capable of assisting the design of the sonic appearance of future environments, events and artifacts.
Participants will explore various opportunities and methods for designing the sonic behavior of everyday objects.
Research papers are invited on any relevant topic, including:
- Product sound design
- Contextual, psychological, cultural and social aspects of SID
- Sound-based interfaces and gesture
- SID in art, design and architecture
- Sonification and enaction
- Sonic and haptic feedback design
Research papers (limited to 6 pages in the HCI Archive Format), will be peer-reviewed and selected based on critical contribution to the Workshop theme.
In the one-day Workshop, participants will have the opportunity to present, demonstrate, and discuss their research. Workshop topics will be discussed in
groups. A maximum of 12 papers will be selected for presentation. Submissions do not have to be anonymous.
A Workshop report will be prepared for the SIGCHI bulletin. Participants will be encouraged to submit their papers for a special journal issue on SID.
Submit your papers to CHIworkshop@… by 3 October 2007. At least one author of accepted papers needs to register for the Workshop and for
one day of the CHI Conference. Participation expenses of Workshop participants may be partly reimbursed by the COST IC-0601 Action on
Sonic Interaction Design, based on availability of funding and number of requests.
