Workshop 3: Acoustics and Psychoacoustics

University of Salford, May 2022
Led by: Prof Bill Davies

Deadline for submission of contribution proposals: early February 2022
Up to now, the acoustic design of almost everything has assumed a typical listener with “normal” hearing. This includes the physical environment (homes, workplaces, public space), products (transport, appliances, audio systems), and digital systems (TV, radio, games). There is a pressing need to explore how acoustic design can improve accessibility for an aurally diverse population. What are the problems? How can the sounds of places, things and systems be reimagined? What new design methods, case studies and information are needed?
