Coordinating the 119th AES Convention, James Johnston has posted a total of 120 individual presentation sessions for the event. Ninety lecture papers and four poster sessions of 30 additional papers will provide attendees with a vast reservoir of knowledge and insight into innovative acoustical developments and applications. The convention will take place from Oct. 7 to Oct. 10, 2005.
“Since the first call for papers went out in January, we received over 150 proposals, virtually all of which represented intriguing sources of meaningful information,” Johnston said. “Only the limits of time and space prohibited our reviewers from adding more papers to the schedule.” A primary researcher and algorithm inventor/designer for AT&T, James Johnston’s accomplishments are highlighted by his collaboration on the MPEG-2 Advanced Audio Coding Standard. Now associated with Microsoft Corp., he has performed extensive research into perceptual modeling of audio coding, soundfield perception and presentation, ancillary mathematics and science related to audio issues.
“JJ has developed an extremely strong papers program,” remarked 119th Convention co-chair Jim Anderson. “A concentration on such timely issues as Speakers, Coding, Multichannel Audio and Signal Processing will address areas that have generated considerable interest thanks to recent technical advances. Attendees are sure to benefit from this extraordinary array of speakers.”
