New York City’s Javits Center hosts the 127th AES Convention October 9-12, 2009.
As preparations for the 127th AES Convention Committee enter the final phase of a yearlong planning process, Convention Chair Agnieszka Roginska has announced that the Preliminary Calendar of Events is now live . The convention is set for October 9-12, 2009, at New York City’s Javits Center (pictured).
The Preliminary Calendar is a user-friendly, full-color timetable listing programs, presenters, panel members and drop-down abstracts describing each paper, workshop and special event scheduled for the four-day event. “While there will be additional fine tuning and some last minute shifts in time, location and participants,” Dr. Roginska says, “visitors to the Preliminary Calendar may be confident that the bulk of this schedule is (almost) written in stone.”
“We are extremely impressed with the extraordinary program the Committee has developed for the 127th Convention,” remarks AES Executive Director Roger Furness. “The thought, deliberation and time they have devoted to this entirely volunteer effort is staggering. Convening for a series of monthly meetings, which began last October, they planned an extraordinary syllabus of Broadcast, Live Sound, Platinum, Historical, Master Class, Student and Special Events, Workshops, Papers, Tutorials and Technical Tours.
“In keeping with the AES mandate to remain indispensible to next-generation attendees, a special effort has been made to address the rapidly expanding game production community,” Furness adds. “Engineers, producers, sound and music creatives currently employed or planning to enter this field will find a comprehensive program designed to cover a major portion of the game production lexicon.”
“A glance at our exhibitors list will attest to the depth and breadth of our constituency,” concludes AES President Jim Anderson. “As always, our Exhibition Hall will be crowded with manufacturers showcasing their latest technology. AES Conventions are valued not only for the opportunity to see new gear, but as a forum for designers to exchange ideas."
