Call for abstracts, papers and demos

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 the listeners’ perception of sharing the same acoustic environment and to provide the localization information of the remote users or other real or virtual acoustic sources. 

The aim of the workshop 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 areas:

  • 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
  • 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. LaTeX and Word templates are available: IEEE conference templates.


The workshop is a satellite event of the 4th International Symposium on the Internet of Sounds (IS2 2023:, which will be hosted at the congress center “Ex Monastero delle Benedettine” in the city of Pisa, Italy, and will take place on the 26 and 27 of October 2023. The workshop as well as the main Symposium will be held in hybrid form, virtual and in presence.

Important dates
