Call for Papers

We cordially invite you to submit your papers and posters for the International Conference on Immersive and 3D Audio (I3DA 2023), on September 5-7, 2023, which will take place at the Alma Mater Studiorum – University of Bologna, School of Engineering and Architecture.

I3DA 2023 will have a particular focus on 3D audio, architectural acoustics, virtual acoustics, automotive acoustics, subjective evaluations, and listening tests. I3DA 2023 would like to involve academic and industrial researchers to share their latest research, methods, and demos related to Immersive and 3D Audio in Audio Engineering. Topics furthermore include musical acoustics, signal processing in acoustics, non-linear acoustics in auralisation, machine learning related to acoustics, heritage acoustics, psychoacoustics, virtual/augmented reality and their applications, 3D audio for gaming, 3D audio in art and sound studies contexts.

The conference will represent the most recent stages in developing new methodologies and technologies in this field, placing itself as a high-profile international meeting for researchers and other professionals in immersive and 3D audio areas.

The I3DA 2023 proceedings will be submitted to the IEEE for publication. The proceedings will also be indexed on Scopus and Web of Science.

Submissions are now closed. All papers will go through a peer review process before being accepted. Oral and poster sessions will be scheduled, depending on the type and number of papers accepted. Papers are assigned to oral or poster sessions at the discretion of the conference organizers. Submission of an abstract constitutes a commitment by the author to present at the congress if accepted. For an abstract to be included in the final scientific program, it is mandatory for the presenting author to register for the congress.

Submission deadlines:

– March 31, 2023: final deadline for abstract submission

– April 15, 2023: new extended deadline for abstract submission

– April 30, 2023: notification of abstract acceptance

–  June 30, 2023:  extended deadline for complete paper submission

– July 20, 2023: deadline for reviewers to complete paper reviews and notification to authors

– Aug 10, 2023: at 23:59 CET – Submission deadline for the authors who are called to correct the paper based on review comments

– Aug 20, 2023:   We will communicate the final paper acceptance to the authors

Anti-Plagiarism Screening
We will conduct to the submitted papers an anti-plagiarism screening to ensure that all papers are clear, authentic and relevant to the conference material.
We submit all papers to the Turnitin and/or Compilatio Scanner.

Please note that once a paper is submitted to I3DA, it cannot be presented to other journals/conferences.


There are no page limits, but we suggest a maximum of  8-10 pages

Publishing Policy

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions for consideration in a special issue with one or more of the partner journals indexed on Scopus and WoS. Only submissions that were presented at the Conference by one of the authors may be invited to a special issue.

Manuscripts have to be submitted to the special issue of the journal according to instructions provided in the invitation letter. Each manuscript will then be reviewed according to the journal policy.

The authors are obliged to inform the conference of the status of their submission in a way provided in the invitation letter.


All conferences and conference proceedings must meet IEEEs quality standards, and IEEE reserves the right not to publish any proceedings that do not meet these standards.

Accepted and orally presented papers are submitted to IEEE Xplore.

The IEEE makes every reasonable attempt to ensure that abstracts and index entries of content accepted into the program are included in databases provided by independent abstracting and indexing (A&I) services. Each A&I partner makes its own editorial decision on what content it will index. IEEE cannot guarantee entries are included in any particular database.

IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference or does not comply with IEEE Best Practices.
