Welcome to the DAFx20's Vienna Conference Series, also known as DAFx 202y (y=0,1 so far), 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!

Usually, DAFx conferences are a blend of oral and poster presentations of peer-reviewed papers, keynote addresses, tutorials and demonstrations. Several social events are held for the attendants, including a concert and the traditional banquet.

We regret that we were not able to do exactly the same in the eDAFx2020 virtual edition and that we cannot fulfil our promise this year either. Nevertheless, we tried as much as we could to make DAFx20in21 into an enjoyable and interesting event.

This year too we would have liked to organise a participants' jamsession as part of the concert. More info for the coordination of this event will be given in due time within DAFx20in22. 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 this close encounter can happen next year when we hope to see you in Vienna for DAFx20in22.

DAFx20in21 is proudly sponsored by

most of which sponsored DAFx2020 as well.

The DAFx20's Vienna conferences are being organised by a team of people spanning several institutions in Vienna where active research on Sound and Music processing and Acoustics is performed. These are:

The DAFx20's Vienna conferences chair is Prof. Gianpaolo Evangelista (mdw), who already chaired the DAFx 2004 conference in Naples, Italy.
