The Audio Engineering Society announces that planning for the 140th AES Convention in Paris, June 4-7, 2016, is now under way.
Papers Co-Chairs Bergame Periaux, Thomas Goerne, Wolfgang Klippel, Robin Reumers and Dejan Todorovic are reviewing submissions for a series of sessions covering most of the principal areas of research into audio engineering and practice. The AES states that it has received at least 20 proposals for Workshops and Tutorials, which are now under consideration by Co-Chairs Natanya Ford and Rob Toulson, and reports that proposals are still coming in. The closing date is February 10, so there is still time to present ideas.
A series of Workshops and Tutorials on the multichannel and 3-D audio reproduction environments is being planned, along with binaural listening (the BiLi project), with contributions from Auro 3D, BBC, Conservatoire de Musique de Paris, France Televisions, IRCAM, Orange Labs and Radio France, to name just a few. More details of the Technical Program will be announced.
The Exhibition Sales Team is also hard at work bringing together exhibitors who will showcase the latest in audio technology and practice, and of course the Project Studio Expo and Live Sound Expo, along with a new Broadcast Forum, will again be organized on the show floor.
“This is probably the most enjoyable part for the organizing team of the Convention, as we bring together all the papers submissions and Workshop and Tutorial proposals into the first draft of the Technical Program," says Michael Williams, Co-Chair of the Convention. "We get a genuine feel about all the research and development that is going on throughout the world. We can truly say that ‘if it’s about audio, then it’s at AES,’ and this time that’s even more so.”
