The Audio Engineering Society is pleased to announce its fourth conference dedicated to audio for games, to be held on 11th-13th February 2015, London, UK.
The nature of game-audio continues to evolve. As high-power console platforms mature, developers still seek to get the most from their DSP, tools and workflow. Handheld platforms such as tablets and phones offer new technical and sound design challenges, development workflows and game-play opportunities that drive the technology in different ways. Gaming is by its very nature an interactive experience, and game development highly multi-disciplinary, and we would like the conference program to reflect this.
This conference focuses on the latest challenges and changes that the industry has faced in most recent years. The conference aims to reflect the needs and interests of all professionals working in or around the area of game audio, further the dialog between existing industry experts, create a forum for sharing techniques and technology, and help advance game audio on current and future platforms.
We welcome submissions in all relevant areas, including, but not limited to:
- Game pipeline
- Spatial audio in games
- Real-time synthesis
- Audio codecs and file formats
- Future areas for standardization
- Sound design, recording, and Foley
- Game music systems
- Audio as a game input
- Training and education
For an extended list of proposed topics and submission requirements see the official Call for Papers:
The three-day conference program is focused around the dissemination and discussion of technical solutions and recommended practices. As well as the usual paper and poster sessions, the conference will also consist of demonstrations, panel discussions, tutorials, and workshops.
