23rd International Conference on Digital Audio Effects

DAFx 2020 in 21

Tuesday 7 to Saturday 11 September 2021 [new dates!!!]

Due to restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic,

we are forced to postpone DAFx2020 until 2021.

The 23rd International Conference on Digital Audio Effects

Welcome to DAFx 2020 hosted at Vienna University of Music and Performing Arts (mdw), Austria !!!

The Digital Audio Effects conferences are meeting points for scientists, engineers, musicians and artists who are developing and applying technology to audio in all its forms.

The conference title originated from a European Union's COST-G6 project and the first public event, the DAFx'98 Workshop, took place in Barcelona. There is now a long standing tradition of DAFx. Besides DAFx conference proceedings, two editions of the Digital Audio Effects (DAFx) book have been published.

In the time, the original title has been given a much broader meaning encompassing all kind of sound and music information processing. Perhaps, we can agree that an Audio Effect is just about anything that sounds!

As with all DAFx conferences, this edition's programme will be a blend of oral and poster presentations of peer-reviewed papers, keynote addresses, tutorials and demonstrations. There will be several social events held for the attendants, including a concert and the traditional banquet.

This year we would like to organise a participants' jamsession as part of the concert. More info for the coordination of this event will be given in due time. Some instruments can be borrowed but if you play a special one and/or a unique effect, it will be necessary to bring it along with you.

The quinquennial Vienna Talk on Music Acoustics, which was to happen at the same venue right after DAFx2020, has been postponed to September 2022. So we will miss the close encounter but, hey, that may be a further occasion to see some of you in Vienna again.
