Special Issue in Applied Sciences: Latest Advances in Active Noise Control
Three-dimensional (or spatial) audio is a growing research field that plays a key role in realizing immersive communication in many of today’s applications for teleconferencing, entertainment, gaming, navigation guidance, and virtual reality (VR)/augmented reality (AR). Technologies in spatial sound capture and binaural recording are becoming an add-on module to our mobile devices to capture the surrounding soundscape, pickup directional and ambient cues, and create an immersive 3D audio media for playback. We are seeing a surge of research activities and applications that rely on digital spatial audio processing and rendering over loudspeakers (stereo, wave field synthesis, Ambisonics) and headphones, and seeing new emerging fields of mobile spatial audio, personal assisted listening, and spatial audio for VR/AR. New developments in graphical processing unit and multi-core processors are accelerating the pace for real-time spatial audio processing, and new techniques that can lead to high quality and immersive spatial audio reproduction.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
