Jens Blauert is the author of the book Spatial Hearing - the Psychophysics of Human Sound Localization, which is the standard book in this field. Currently, he is president of the German Acoustical Society, DEGA. He is an honorary member of the Polish acoustical society and a Fellow of ASA, IEEE, AES and IoA. In 1999, he was awarded the Silver Medal of the Acoustical Society of America.
In his lecture, Jens Blauert will give a tutorial overview on the basic psychoacoustic facts of sound localisation and binaural signal enhancement.
The following fields will be addressed specifically:

  • directional hearing in the median sagittal plane
  • directional hearing with sounds from lateral directions
  • distance perception and inside-the-head locatedness,
  • summing localization
  • auditory precedence
  • the effect of interaural decorrelation
  • binaural signal detection and suppression of reverberance
