Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Psychoacoustics is an important research field not only for understanding the fundamental mechanism of human auditory perception, but also for developing methods of capturing, processing, and measuring audio signals for practical applications. The present Special Issue aims to introduce the state-of-the-art of psychoacoustics engineering in various application areas and explore new directions of psychoacoustics research in the age of technological convergence and artificial intelligence. This Special Issue will aim to collect 10 to 20 papers and will be published as a book collection.  

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Audio coding
  • Audio for virtual and augmented reality
  • Audio using artificial intelligence
  • Hearing aids
  • Interactive audio
  • Building/Environmental acoustics
  • Soundscapes
  • Spatial audio (multichannel and binaural)
  • Sound recording and mixing techniques
  • The sound-quality prediction model
