AES 2022 International Automotive Audio Conference

Call for Submissions

Over the last 20 years, Automotive Audio has changed dramatically from being standard mono sound in one full-range loudspeaker to a true multichannel playback system fully integrated and adjusted to the specific car. Today some of the most advanced sound technologies are being developed and applied in Automotive Audio. Recently the role of audio in the automotive industry has significantly changed. Sound systems are used to design the sound of cars, i.e. the sound of the car itself due to its motion and thus generation of sound (usually called noise). The impact of streaming, ride-share, autonomy, Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV’s), ownership models, and car share could have a profound effect on the way we think about sound in and around vehicles and microphones challenges and use cases.

The conference will give an overview of the present state-of-the-art in some specific topics and addresses many of the new scientific disciplines involved in this still-emerging field. Automotive Audio involves combinations of otherwise complementary scientific fields such as power electronics, bus systems, loudspeaker drive units, signal processing (DSP), acoustics & vibrations (NVH), and more.

Submission Guidelines

Complete manuscripts (4–8 pages) are to be submitted to the papers chairs by March 31, 2022 using the conference’s EasyChair submission system. Templates for preparing papers will also be available at that site. Papers and author information may be submitted anytime after April, 2021. Authors may contact the papers chairs in advance of the full paper submission date, regarding the suitability of paper topics, or for an informal review of an abstract/précis. Acceptance of papers will be determined by the conference review committee and authors will be informed of the decision before April 11, 2022. Final versions of papers following any revisions guided by the committee’s review must be submitted by May 22, 2022.

The conference program will include an oral presentation of papers.

Submitting a workshop proposal

Workshops will complement the conference paper sessions by providing panel presentations and lectures led by experts in the field. These events will provide in-depth yet practical discussions related to automotive audio, while demonstrating the application of science in real-world scenarios. Authors are encouraged to submit proposals for workshops by contacting the Paper Chair directly.

Registration requirement

At least one author on each paper must register for the conference for the paper to be included in the conference program and proceedings.

Open Access

Authors will have the option of submitting Open Access papers. For further information see


All questions about submissions should be emailed to Paper Chair
