This year’s AES Paris Convention once again will present four days of professional audio research and technology by many of the biggest names in the industry, exploring a wide array of topics and issues from the past, present, and future of audio. Immersive sound, including numerous listening opportunities, is an emphasis woven throughout the program. Papers and Engineering Briefs sessions showcase the work of over 120 researchers on topics ranging from 3D Recording and Reproduction, Binaural Listening, Bluetooth Technologies, Digital Filter Design, and other in-depth areas of interest, while Workshop events will bring together panels of experts to a range of provocative and practical topics including Music Production for Film, Wind Noise in Microphones, Expert Transfer Techniques, and more. Another popular set of events at AES conventions are the Tutorials sessions, which provide a varied horizon of presentations on important audio fundamentals, for beginners and seasoned professionals alike, on 3D and Binaural Listening, Audio Forensics and Sound Design, to name but a few. Student and Career Development events throughout the convention include a Career and Education Fair, Recording Competition and Critiques, Student Delegate Assemblies, and other exclusive networking opportunities. Unique to this convention is also the series of special events called “Audio Projections.” You will, of course, spend a lot of time talking and thinking about audio, but here is an opportunity to just listen and enjoy. After all, this is why we actually work in this industry.
