The Audio Engineering Society 33rd International Conference, scheduled for June 5-7 in Denver, will explore the history, hardware and techniques of forensic audio investigation. A combination of high-level tutorials, Papers and Technical Sessions has been developed to provide attendees with invaluable technical information and networking opportunities.
Topics to be covered will include significant advances in and applications of tools available for audio recovery and enhancement, voice recognition and covert recording techniques.
“Audio forensics is an extremely timely issue within the law enforcement, legal, archival and restoration communities,” reports AES Executive Director Roger Furness. “We expect this to be a well-attended and extremely worthwhile conference.”
The three-day event will be highlighted by a Forensic Enhancement contest. International forensic audio specialists were challenged to process five specially prepared CDs of typical noise problems. Winners will receive $500 prizes and explain the techniques they used to resolve the problems.
