For the last two decades, there has been a growing interest in the study of sound from a Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) perspective. This coincides with the shift to a third wave of HCI towards applications in broader cultural contexts. In the last few years, researchers have paid special attention to  the integration of other sensory modalities with sound. In this context, the first Sound, Image and Interaction Doctoral Symposium (SIIDS) aims to address emerging issues in research related to the creation of interactive sonic experiences, particularly focusing on the role that image plays in these scenarios.

The one-day Symposium (4/October) will be hosted by M-ITI – Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute (Funchal, Portugal), and will have two tracks: poster (with oral presentation) and performance. There will also be a keynote presentation by Prof. Atau Tanaka (Goldsmiths, U. London). Participation is open to all international PhD students conducting research on computer-based systems for interactive sound, in particular combined with image.
