Call for papers and demos

After the success of the first three editions, we are pleased to invite the community to submit to the 4th International Symposium on the Internet of Sounds (IS2 2023). The Internet of Sounds is an emerging research field positioned at the intersection of the Internet of Things and Sound and Music Computing domains. The symposium will be hosted at the congress center “Ex Monastero delle Benedettine” in the city of Pisa, Italy.

The aim of the symposium is to bring together academics and industry to investigate and advance the development of Internet of Sounds technologies by using cutting-edge tools and processes. The event will consist of presentations from academics and keynotes, poster presentations, demonstrations, as well as tutorials.

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

  • Wireless acoustic sensor networks
  • Networked music performances
  • Web Audio for the Internet of Sounds
  • Networked Musical XR
  • Detection and classification of sounds in acoustic sensor networks
  • Sound-based anomaly detection and sound-based predictive maintenance in networked settings
  • Visualization and Sonification of acoustic sensor networks
  • Ecoacoustics
  • Embedded Audio
  • Privacy and security in acoustic sensor networks 
  • Smart Musical Instruments
  • Musical haptics for the Internet of Musical Things
  • Participatory live music performances
  • Music education applications for the Internet of Musical Things
  • Intelligent music production in Internet of Musical Things contexts
  • Spatial audio for the Internet of Sounds
  • Sonification for Internet of Sounds applications
  • Ubiquitous music
  • Protocols and exchange formats for the Internet of Sounds
  • Improving accessibility and inclusiveness within the Internet of Sounds
  • Open audio databases for Deep Learning and Data Mining
  • Challenges in the management and delivery of large audio databases
  • Visualization, access and indexing of audio databases
  • Cloud-based services for musical and audio applications
  • Semantic Audio applications for the Internet of Sounds
  • Sustainability and ethical aspects of the Internet of Sounds

We consider contributions in the form of a full paper (min 5 pages, max 10 pages), a poster paper (min 2 pages, max 4 pages), or a demo proposal (max 2 pages). Authors are welcome to submit to all three tracks. We encourage the submission of work in progress as well as more mature work. However, only the contributions of at least 4 pages will be included in the Proceedings to be submitted to IEEE.
