  title={Sound science: Marking ten international conferences on auditory display},
  author={Gregory Kramer and Bruce N. Walker},
  journal={ACM Trans. Appl. Percept.},
This special issue of ACM Transactions on Applied Perception is intended to commemorate the tenth International Conference on Auditory Display (ICAD) and to serve as an introduction and overview of the field of auditory displays. This paper discusses the goals of the issue and describes the paper selection process. The selected papers are also introduced, with their connections to each other, their place in ICAD, and their relevance to other fields briefly highlighted. 

Advances in auditory display research

This current special issue presents a collection of extended works that were selected from papers presented at the 2015 International Conference on Auditory Display, and an overview of the selection process and the accepted papers is presented.

The development and evaluation of an approach to auditory display design based on soundtrack composition

This thesis presents the development and evaluation of a new approach (SoundTrAD) to designing auditory interfaces. The proposed approach combines practices and concepts from film soundtrack

The motivation for using sound in virtual environments is described and the applications of sound in VEs in relation to the functions it is expected to perform in the VEs are discussed.

Sonic Interaction Design

Satellite Gamelan: Microtonal Sonification Using a Large Consort of Mobile Phones

This paper describes an approach to sonification based on an iPhone app created for multiple users to explore a microtonal scale generated from harmonics using the combination product set method

Sound user Interface with Touch Panel for Data and Information Expression and its Application to Meteorological Data Representation

Through experiments, it is found that the proposed SUI combined with visual perception makes meteorologist to understand meteorological data intuitively and is much understandable than ever in a comprehensive manner.

Complementing Visual Data Mining with the Sound Dimension: Sonification of Time Dependent Data

This chapter explores the extension of visual data mining by adding a sound dimension to the data representation by using the triangulation method, combining the automated generation of the sound patterns with two evaluation techniques.

A Complete Bibliography of ACM Transactions on Applied Perception

An apparatus and method for repeatedly presenting a single, flat, tubular corrugated case, with its leading closure flaps overfolded in open flap position for easy gripping, erection and placement in

Lobbying for the ear : the public fascination with and academic legitimacy of the sonification of scientific data

The final author version and the galley proof are versions of the publication after peer review that features the final layout of the paper including the volume, issue and page numbers.

Sleep Musicalization: Automatic Music Composition from Sleep Measurements

A methodology that reads a signal from state-of-the-art mattress sensor, uses highly non-trivial data analysis methods to measure sleep from the signal, and then composes music from the measurements, produces music that reflects the user's sleep during a night and complements visualizations of sleep measurements.



Sonification Report: Status of the Field and Research Agenda Prepared for the National Science Foundation by members of the International Community for Auditory Display

The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of sonification research, including the current status of the field and a proposed research agenda. This paper was prepared by an interdisciplinary

Mappings and metaphors in auditory displays: An experimental assessment

Experimental research on different mappings and metaphors, in a generic process-control task environment, with reaction time and accuracy as dependent measures are presented, hoping that this area of investigation will lead to the development of mapping guidelines applicable to auditory displays in a wide range of task domains.

A perceptual framework for the auditory display of scientific data

This chapter proposes a perceptual framework for observable and systematic specification and comprehension of sounds in a device-independent auditory display of scientific data that consists of a perceptually scaled sound space and a display model that maps points from the perceptual space to a display device parameter space while preserving the interrelationships between them.

Data sonification from the desktop: Should sound be part of standard data analysis software?

It is shown that basic properties of simple functions, distribution properties of data samples, and patterns of covariation between two variables can be effectively displayed by simple auditory graphs involving patterns of pitch variation over time.

Data collection and analysis techniques for evaluating the perceptual qualities of auditory stimuli

A general methodological framework for evaluating the perceptual properties of auditory stimuli is described, which provides analysis techniques that can ensure the effective use of sound for a variety of applications, including virtual reality and data sonification systems.

Auditory Display: Sonification, Audification, And Auditory Interfaces

This book presents a meta-modelling framework for automating the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and expensive process of manually cataloging and reconstructing musical structures in data from Chaotic Attraction.

A principled methodology for the specification and design of nonvisual widgets

The methodology is applied to the specification of a simple listbox widget, taking into account requirements imposed by manipulation of interaction devices and information provided by analysis of the visual representation.

The design and evaluation of a sonically enhanced tool palette

This paper used nonspeech sounds called earcons to indicate the current tool and when tool changes occurred so that users could tell what tool they were in wherever they were looking, and showed a significant reduction in the number of tasks performed with the wrong tool.

Using wavelets to synthesize stochastic-based sounds for immersive virtual environments

This paper describes a synthesis approach that uses wavelets for modeling stochastic-based sounds that can change according to changes in the virtual environment, and developed models and results demonstrate proof of the concept and illustrate the potential of this approach.

Optimizing the spatial configuration of a seven-talker speech display

The best overall performance in the seven-talker task occurred when the hybrid near-far spatial configuration was combined with the better-ear normalization scheme, which resulted in a 20% increase in the number of correct identifications relative to the baseline condition with linearly spaced talker locations and no level normalization.
