Chris Watson will be keynote speaker at the 6th Audio Mostly, a conference on interaction with sound, in 7-9 September 2011. The conference, steered by the Interactive Institute, Sonic Studio in Piteå, Sweden, will be hosted by the University of Coimbra, Portugal, and held in co-operation with SIGCHI and the Association for Computing Machinery, ACM, New York, USA.
The Audio Mostly Conference series fosters the thoughtfulness for the unexploited potential of audio in computer-based environments and across many contexts. It aims to help open up this area of thinking by bringing together audio experts, game designers, content creators, and technology and behavioral researchers. The conference theme, this year, is “Sound and Context”. Chris’ background and the great appreciation his work enjoys among practitioners and researchers make him a natural fit in as a keynote speaker in this event.
