Good news: sonification.de was completely overhauled, from difficult-to-edit static html pages to the more modern and dynamic wordpress. I believe that this will lead to exponentially more updates on this sites. so visit this site from time to time and see what’s new…
There is an open call for papers for a special issue on Interactive Sonification, which followed the third ISon 2010 workshop, hosted by Roberto Bresin at KTH in April 2010. Please consider.
