133rd AES Convention Papers Sessions Address Essential Issues

AES Papers Co-Chair Veronique Larcher

AES Convention Papers Co-Chairs Veronique Larcher (pictured) and Alan Seefeldt have assembled a four-day program of solidly researched presentations designed to share knowledge on both esoteric and widely discussed issues. “Our objective was to develop the most useful, timely, challenging, and above all, interesting issues to inform and inspire our attendees,” Larcher says.

“The 133rd AES Convention will offer a total of 112 individual presentations,” says Papers Co-Chair, Alan Seefeldt.

“The quality and diversity of the submissions we received enabled us to develop multi-faceted sessions covering such essential issues as Networked Audio, Emerging Audio Technologies and Auditory Perception,” Larcher continues. “A glance at the titles featured in these sessions substantiates their comprehensive intent. Attendees should note that all paper presentations are available in print and PDF/CD format, and they will be available in audio format following the Convention.”
