2nd IEEE International Workshop on Networked Immersive Audio (IEEE IWNIA)—2 October 2024

IEEE IWNIA is a satellite event of the IEEE 5th International Symposium on the Internet of Sounds (IEEE IS2 2024). The workshop is hosted by International Audio Laboratories Erlangen and takes place 2 October 2024 in Erlangen, Germany.

Networked Immersive Audio is an emerging topic in sound-based communications. To date, scarce research has been conducted on how to integrate networking systems with immersive audio rendering techniques able to enrich a listener's perception of sharing the same acoustic environment and to provide the localization information of remote users or other real or virtual acoustic sources.

The aim of IEEE IWNIA 2024 is to bring together academics and industry to investigate and advance the development of systems at the confluence of spatial audio and networking, as well as the understanding of human perception in immersive, networked contexts.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Frameworks for Networked Immersive Audio
  • Spatial audio systems for networked interactions
  • 3D audio perception in networked settings
  • Spatial audio for Web Audio
  • Embedded spatial audio systems
  • Experimental results of prototype/testbed for Networked Immersive Audio
  • Datasets
  • Perception in Networked Immersive Audio applications
  • URLLC communications
  • 5G/6G architectures leveraging slicing and Multi-access Edge Computing
  • Standardization activities for Networked Immersive Audio
  • Packet loss concealment methods
  • Network traffic predictions
  • Optimization in the placement of Virtual Network Functions
  • Security and privacy in Networked Immersive Audio

We consider contributions in the form of abstracts (max 500 words), full papers (min 5 pages, max 10 pages), poster papers (4 pages), or a demo proposal (max 2 pages). We encourage the submission of work in progress as well as more mature work.

Accepted papers of at least 4 pages, not including abstracts or demo papers, will be submitted to IEEE Xplore® for publication in IS2 2024 proceedings. See IEEE Technical Program Integrity Initiative FAQs for clarification.
