The 39th AES International Conference will be held June 17-19, 2010, in Denmark at the Pharmakon Conference Center, Hillerød, near Copenhagen. The Conference will be dedicated to the field of audio forensics, exploring its history, current practices and future challenges.
The conference will address issues such as audio recording, speech and signal processing and analysis, as well as the problems associated with perceptual encoding techniques and the widespread availability of inexpensive, easy-to-use editing and manipulation software.
Consequently, the organizing committee is now calling for papers in the fields of forensic processing and analysis of recordings, detection of forgeries and alterations, speech enhancement and voice identification. Proposals may be submitted to the AES Website at www.aes.org/events/39.
In addition to its academic content, the conference is also inviting commercial exhibitors to demonstrate products in the form of tutorial sessions, and to present them in the attached exhibition space for all three days without additional charge.
“By making it affordable for developers and manufacturers to attend, we hope to attract many who would otherwise not join us for the conference,” says workshop co-chairman Gordon Reid. “We believe that products stimulate discussion and debate, and the presence of a wider variety of exhibitors will add considerably to the value of the event. Everybody will gain from this, and we hope that the AES forensic conference can then go on to become one of the most important dates in the diary for both academics and companies active in the field.”
