Throughout the week, our team especially enjoyed the audio-related program, consisting of Plenaries, an Industry Program, live Tutorials, and select Oral Paper Presentations by in-person attendees. Such interdisciplinary events help us think out of the box and give us valuable insights into other research areas as well. Therefore, we plan to participate in the ICASSP 2023 in Rhodes.

We presented our immersive audio demo to the public at the forum. Many of the listeners of our demo were acknowledged experts in the audio field, giving us amazing feedback, which was very uplifting and motivational. One of the most extraordinary comments we’ve gotten was that our immersive audio demo is “scarily realistic”. Overall, the forum was a hit, and we are looking forward to participating in the following MikroForums.
