In a continuing effort to extend the scope of AES Convention Technical Papers, committee chair Agnieszka Roginska and Papers Sessions co chairs Veronique Larcher and Steven Garrett have issued an open call to the professional audio community for technical papers proposals.
“The volume of Papers submissions is always high,” says Larcher. “However, by casting our net to a wider segment of the industry and educational sector, we hope to expand our program by adding worthwhile subjects which may not be on the universal radar.”
An increased pool of submissions raises the bar for quality as well as diversity. “Meaningful papers can originate from sources beyond traditional academia,” Garrett adds. “Our goal is to cover as many categories and issues as possible, and to develop a singularly comprehensive and authoritative catalog.”
Roginska says, “In addition to sharing knowledge and opening constructive dialogs on issues [that] impact on the professional audio community, presenting authors will have their Papers included on the CD-ROM of the full Papers/Posters Program, and student members will be eligible for the Student Paper Award.”
Papers are presented in two distinct formats: as formal lectures before an audience of 50 to 250 attendees followed by brief Q&A sessions or as Poster sessions, which are highly-detailed presentations designed for greater interaction between the author and groups of 12 to 15 members.
Papers topics are open in the following categories: Applications in Audio; Audio Processing; Recording Production and Reproduction; Audio Equipment; Perception; and Emerging Audio Technologies.
