The IEM was hosting the first European competition in 3D audio productions for students (short 3DAP Competition) this year, a venture running as a part of ICSA. An international jury judged the submissions and discussed them during the conference.
The three best contributions in each category have been presented in the György-Ligeti-Saal hall during the conference.
