As preparations for the 129th AES Convention enter the final weeks of a full year of planning, Convention Co-Chairs Valerie Tyler and Jim McTigue have announced that the Preliminary Calendar of Events is now live at http://www.aes.org/events/129/ The convention is set for Nov. 4-7 at SF’s Moscone Center.
“The Preliminary Calendar is a user-friendly, full-color timetable of events, presenters, and drop-down abstracts describing papers, workshops and tutorials,” Tyler reports. “Fine-tuning will continue for some time to come, with program changes, including last-minute shifts in times, locations and participants,” Tyler adds. “However, the Preliminary Calendar will provide an excellent touchstone for attendees looking to develop their own preliminary schedules.”
“The 129th Convention Committee has developed a remarkable program,” said AES Executive Director Roger Furness. “Their tireless, entirely volunteer efforts cannot be over-emphasized. The countless hours they’ve devoted to planning Broadcast, Live Sound, Platinum, Historical, Master Class, Student and Special Events, Workshops, Papers, Tutorials and Technical Tours have produced a not-to-be-missed four-day event.
“The AES objective of remaining indispensible to next-generation attendees is exemplified by the rapidly shifting issue of technology design. To that end, we have dedicated a special track to the field of Product Design,” Furness adds. “Engineers, broadcasters, sound and music producers and students will find a concentrated program designed to provide in-depth awareness of this essential arena.”
“Our Exhibitors’ list includes many of our industry’s leading technology innovators,” concludes 129th Committee Co-Chair Jim McTigue. “AES Conventions remain the primary venue to see and discuss new gear, and, an irreplaceable forum for students, educators, technology designers, manufacturers and users, to exchange ideas. The 129th Convention looms as a strong candidate for a new standard of excellence in this mission.”
