Call For Papers

We are pleased to announce that the 21st International Conference on Digital Audio Effects (DAFx2018) will be held at Aveiro, Portugal, on September 4–8 2018.

DAFx2018 is organised by the University of Aveiro, through its Institute of Electronics and Informatics Engineering (IEETA), in collaboration with the Portuguese Audio Engineering Association (APEA). The conference will be hosted at the university campus and will feature oral and poster presentations of accepted papers, keynote addresses, tutorials and demonstrations. The social program – including welcome reception, concert and banquet – will offer opportunities for more informal interaction while enjoying the city and the region.

This annual conference is a coming together of those working across the globe in research on digital audio processing for music and speech, sound design, acoustics and related applications. Original contributions for DAFx2018 are encouraged in, but not limited to, the following topics:

Capture and analysis
Representation, transformation and modelling
Transmission and resynthesis
Speech/voice effects and manipulation
Perception, psychoacoustics and evaluation
Spatial sound analysis, coding and synthesis
Sound source separation
Sound synthesis and composition
Hardware and software design
Computational auditory scene analysis

We especially welcome submissions addressing:

Digital audio processing for inclusion
Immersive and AR/VR audio effects
Sonification and sound design using non-acoustic data

Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers, eight pages maximum, for both oral and poster presentations, before April 16th, 2018.

Submitted papers must be camera-ready and formatted according to the templates and instructions available at the DAFx2018 website. All papers have to be submitted through the EasyChair conference management system and are subject to peer review. Acceptance may be conditional upon changes being made to the paper as directed by the reviewers. Proceedings with the final versions of the accepted contributions will be made freely accessible on the DAFx2018 website after the conference closure.

Volumes 2008 to 2017 of DAFx proceedings are now indexed in Scopus and this will apply similarly to DAFx2018 proceedings. Extended versions of the best DAFx2018 papers will be given special consideration for publication in the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society.

Important dates:

Full-Paper Submission: March 29th, 2018 April 16th, 2018
Notification of Acceptance: May 18th, 2018
Final Paper Submission: June 15th, 2018
Author registration deadline: June 22nd, 2018
