Sound has played a fundamental role in communications since the dawn of humankind and the rise of spoken languages. With the advent of technology, we devised methods to record sounds and to transmit them over long distances. Nowadays, sound plays a central role in smart assistants and immersive 3D and extended reality platforms.
The theme of this program is the future of “universal acoustical communication.” It will bring together world-class researchers and young scientists throughout a Universal Acoustical Communication Month. The program will revolve around an International Symposium and will be complemented by a series of satellite seminars in specialized topics.
