AES 123rd convention Papers cochair Agnieszka Roginska
AES announces the highlights of its education program at the 123rd convention in New York City’s Javits Center, October 5-8, 2007. “Papers cochairs Agnieszka Roginska (pictured) and Veronique Larcher have performed an invaluable service for the AES 123rd Convention,” says AES Executive Director Roger Furness.
“The Papers Committee devoted countless hours to coordinating the review and selection of hundreds of worthwhile submissions,” Furness continues. “This year’s program will dramatically advance the wealth of knowledge already assembled by AES members over the past 59 years. I would be remiss in not acknowledging Ms. Roginska’s tireless contribution, which showed no sign of abating even though her ninth month of pregnancy and the Labor Day weekend birth of her beautiful baby daughter.”
AES convention paper presentations include “Short-Term Memory for Musical Intervals,” presented by Susan Rogers and Daniel Levitin of McGill University in Montreal; “Experiment in Computational Voice Elimination Using Format Analysis,” presented by Durand R. Begault of Charles M. Salter Associates; “Multi-Source Room Equalization—Reducing Room Resonances,” presented by John Vanderkooy of University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada; “A Low Complexity Perceptually Tuned Room Correction System,” presented by James Johnston and Serge Smirnov of Microsoft Corporation in Redmond, Wash.; and “A High-Level Musical Score Alignment Technique Based On Fuzzy Logic and DTW,” presented by Bruno Gagnon, Roch Lefebvre and Charles-Antoine Brunet of the University of Sherbrooke in Sherbrooke, Quebec.
“Papers are presented as lectures before group as large as 100, while Posters promote interactive discussion between 15 to 25 working professionals,” says Papers cochair Veronique Larcher. “Each of our presenters is a highly respected expert in their field. The 123rd AES Convention Papers and Posters program might be considered an advanced university level course in applied and theoretical acoustics.”
Poster highlights include “Special Hearing Aid for Stuttering People,” presented by Piotr Odya and Andrzej Czyzewski of Gdansk University of Technology in Gdansk, Poland; “Round-Robin Comparison of HRTF Simulation Results,” presented by Raphaël Greff of A-Volute in Douai, France, and Brian F. G. Katz of LIMS –CNRS in Orsay, France; and “Sharing Acoustic Spaces Over Telepresence Using Virtual Microphone Control,” presented by Jonas Braasch and Daniel L. Valente of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y., and Nils Peters of McGill University in Montreal.
