DAFx 20in22 Information for Authors

Submission to DAFx20in22 was closed a while ago.

The presentation of the accepted papers took place within DAFx20in22 on Wednesday 7 September through Friday 9 September 2022.

The accepted papers are published in the Vol. 3 of the DAFx20's Vienna Proceedings, provided that the following conditions were attained:

1) The author(s) delivered a presentation of the paper (15 minutes, in-person);

2) We timely received the payment of the registration fees for at least one of the authors.

As already experimented in the past two years, we continued to enforce a 1+1/2 peer-reviewing system. Papers that fully convinced all the reviewers undergo only one review step (the submissions will be published, possibly subject to minor changes). Papers that convinced most reviewers but received only a few borderline and/or mild rejection ratings undergo a second rapid review process carried out by the most critical reviewers. The purpose of the second review is to check that the revised manuscript successfully implements the suggested major changes and/or provides convincing sound examples if it applies. All submissions can be rejected following a first overall negative review or a confirmed and justified second negative review (we, as committee, also review the reviews!).

Call for Papers

We are pleased to invite the community to submit to the 25th International Conference on Digital Audio Effects. The conference will be hosted at the Vienna University of Music and Performing Arts. The annual conference brings together academics, industry bodies and students from around the globe to participate in the development of Digital Audio Effects for music production, speech, sound design and other applications.

We would like to invite submissions of papers for presentation at DAFx20in22 within the following general areas:

  • Capture and Analysis
  • Representation, transformation and modelling
  • Transmission and resynthesis
  • Effects and manipulation
  • Perception, psychoacoustics and evaluation
  • Spatial sound analysis, coding and synthesis
  • Source separation
  • Physical modelling, virtual acoustic and analogue models
  • Sound synthesis, composition and sonification
  • Hardware and software design
  • Music Information Retrieval and Intelligent Audio Engineering

New Proceedings and Programme Generating Platform

We are proud to announce that last year we developed a software platform, which allows us to preserve the internal links (hyperrefs) of the individual papers in the compiled book of online proceedings. The same platform also automates the redaction of the entire conference programme.

Thus, we expect the authors to strictly comply with the given templates and to format their contributions, whenever possible, using LaTeX instead of MS Word. While it is not impossible to correctly produce a compliant paper with MS Word, it requires a lot more discipline to keep the bibliography and everything else in the correct format and to insert cross-references in the text, using the full context option. Additionally, bookmarks to paper sections must be manually placed.

Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers according to one of the following two paper formats:

  • Oral presentation: 8 pages maximum in the proceedings (15 minutes talk, 5 minutes questions and answers)
  • Poster presentation: 8 pages maximum in the proceedings (2 minutes introductory poster presentation)

The program committee will decide the types of presentation based on the conference organisation, and the authors' preferences. Submitted papers must be camera-ready and conform to the format specified in the template, which can be downloaded here.

Papers should be submitted using the EasyChair conference management system.

All submissions must be original and will be subject to peer review.

Acceptance may be conditional upon changes being made to the paper as specified by reviewers (please read about the 1+1/2 peer-reviewing system in the above). Final versions of the accepted contributions will be published in the conference proceedings distributed to all registered delegates at the conference site and will be made freely available.


DAFx20's papers will be considered for publication in the open access repository at mdw. This will not preclude the possibility to publish extended versions of the papers in other open access journals.


If financial conditions will allow, also this year we will award the best DAFx20in22 papers.


If you have any queries or questions, please contact the organisers on dafx2020@gmail.com.

Presentation Formats

Virtual Presentations

We used this presentation mode in the online DAFx events only in 2020 and 2021. Virtual presentation was not allowed in the in-person DAFx20in22.

The time-slot for each audiovisual presentation is 10-15 minutes (plus Q&A time during virtual coffee breaks).

The virtual presentations should have the following characteristics:

  • Slides with voice commentary / video-camera optional
  • Duration: 10-15 minutes
  • Format: mp4
  • Resolution: 1920 x 1080
  • Aspect ratio: 16:9
  • File name: "paper ID".mp4.

The DAFx20's Vienna logos can be found in PNG or EPS formats here for your presentation.

Please send us the link to your file via email.

Oral Presentations

The time-slot for the presentations is 20 minutes (15 minutes talk, 5 minutes questions and answers). This splits up into 15 minutes for presentation, and 5 minutes dedicated to discussion with the audience. During the discussion, the next presenting author will be invited to prepare.

All presentations should be tested before the start of your session. The screen will accept either VGA, HDMI or mini-Display Port. A mini-jack will be available for audio demonstrations. Whilst there may be some converters available, please ensure you bring your own. A dedicated machine will be available as well which will be suitable for PowerPoint and PDF presentations.

The DAFx20's Vienna logos can be found in PNG or EPS formats here for your presentation.

Poster Presentations

Posters for each day will be pinned for either the morning or afternoon of each conference day for unguided discussion. The posters should be in portrait or landscape A1 format (594 x 841 mm). Each author will also give a two minute overview of their poster before the session.
