Abstract. The paper presents an initial study on designing a Dynamic Data Driven (DDD) computational environment to enable reliable and efficient determination of Head Related Transfer Functions (HRTF) for patients with reconstructed ears. The determination involves a synthesis of coordinated experiments and large scale, parallel computer simulations. Time limits (one working day), cost of MRI scans, and parallelism in experimental and computer simulations impose the need for a DDD enabling fast and reliable results.
