On October 13/14, seven members of the Hearing Systems group attended the ‘Moving Sounds and Moving Listeners’ workshop at the MRC/CSO Institute of Hearing Research (Scottish Section) in Glasgow that was organized by Owen Brimijoin and Michael A. Akeroyd.

About 60 international researchers gathered there to discuss current technology and research findings related to head tracking. Especially for investigating the influence of head movements on spatial hearing, which is an important step in understanding how our hearing system helps us orient ourselves in everyday situations, head tracking has become an invaluable tool in recent years. Besides the scientific content presented in talks and posters, the participants could try several experiments using different methods of head tracking, and in the breaks there were lots of opportunities to discuss the findings and exchange ideas with the experts.
