Names written in boldface refer to first authors, in CAPITAL letters to keynote and invited papers. Full papers can be accessed from the abstracts (ISCA members only). In addition, presentation slides are also available (ISCA members only) in PDF and Powerpoint versions for most of the papers. Some of the Powerpoint versions contain acoustic examples and/or short films. In four papers there are many and/or large external sound and/or video files that come with the presentations. These presentations are packed into zipped tar archives that open under UNIX and Windows. Please note that each abstract opens in a separate window.
