About DAFx23

We are pleased to announce that the 26th International Conference on Digital Audio Effects (DAFx23) will be organised by the Multisensory Experience Lab at Aalborg University and held at Aalborg University’s Copenhagen campus.

This annual conference brings together research practitioners across the globe working with digital audio processing for music and speech, sound art, acoustics and related applications.

The conference will feature oral presentations, poster and demo sessions, keynote addresses, tutorials and workshops, plus a social program.

Additional information regarding submissions (NEW!!)

Abstract / Full Paper submissions

Please note that until March 24th it is possible to create an initial submission on EasyChair, containing only an abstract. After this date, the portal will be closed for new submissions, but existing submissions will be editable until March 31st April 7th (strict!), including full-paper uploads.

DAFX23 Demo Track + Late Breaking Results

This year, we invite participants to give a live demonstration of their work, accompanied by a short 2-4 page paper. Additionally, authors are invited to submit short-papers (2-4 pages) including Late Breaking Results (LBR). All submissions will be peer-reviewed, and accepted short-papers will be included in the DAFx23 proceedings.

An additional track, entitled DAFx23 Demo Track + LBR, has been added to the EasyChair portal. The deadline for demo and LBR short-papers is May 5th (strict!).
