ISon2004 Proceedings

International Workshop on Interactive Sonification

(Human Interaction with Auditory Displays)

organised by Andy Hunt and Thomas Hermann

8th January 2004,

Bielefeld University, Germany

These proceedings contain the conference versions of all contributions to the
first International Workshop on Interactive Sonification. The files are
provided in pdf format, linked to the paper title in the program section
below. Those papers marked with (IEEE) have subsequently been reworked and published
in the
Special Issue of IEEE Multimedia on Interactive Sonification (04/2005).

We very much hope that the proceedings provide an inspiration for your work
and extend your perspective on the new emerging research field of
interactive sonification.
