Audio Mostly 2021 calls for Papers, Demos, Workshops, and Music & Installations on the topic of “Sonic experiences in the era of the Internet of Sounds”.

Audio Mostly is an audio-focused interdisciplinary conference on design, technology, and interaction with sound that embraces applied theory and practice-oriented research. Its annual gatherings bring together thinkers and doers from academia and industry that share an interest in sonic interaction and the use of audio for interface design. This remit covers product design, auditory display, computer games and virtual environments, new musical instruments, as well as education and workplace tools. It further includes fields such as the psychology of sound and music, cultural studies, system engineering, and everything in between in which sonic interaction plays a role. As in previous years, the conference is planned to be in-cooperation with ACM/SIGCHI.

The conference will be held on 1-3 September 2021 and will be hosted by the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science of University of Trento, Italy ( At present we are planning to run the conference in physical presence, but we are constantly monitoring the evolution of the pandemic. Anyways, virtual participation will be possible.
