2024 AES 6th International Conference on Audio for Games

Call for Submissions

Game audio began with simple beeps just a few decades ago, but it has undergone dramatic changes quickly. Today, it continues to evolve as a cutting-edge form of audio expression that incorporates all kinds of audio technology. The immersive sound in games extends beyond the limitations of multi-channel audio. It is an essential element of immersion that combines various factors, such as emotive, realistic, and interactive sounds, to create a truly immersive experience. Moreover, interactive sound expression is the essence of gaming and has evolved while being inherited. This conference aims to explore the fundamental nature of interactive sound expressions that have been passed down from the past and propose innovations that connect the present and future.

Join us in Tokyo and immerse yourself in the world of game audio and rediscover its traditions, share your experiences with many colleagues, and witness innovations for a hopeful future.
