Full program is now posted.  See program tab.

We have received a great collection of papers and workshops which are in the full schedule which runs 9am-5pm PDT. We will be using AltSpaceVR as our online venue for the conference. This will make it possible to have keynote and paper presentations, as well as panel discussions and workshops, with question/answer sessions. Additionally, there will be space for small discussions, which is such an important aspect of any conference. The dates of the conference remain the same. There will also be several pre-conference events, during the first two weeks of August. Please check back here for more updates.

Conference Dates and Times:
August 17-19, 2020, 9am-5pm PDT
The program for the 3rd AES International Conference on AVAR will focus around the dissemination of top-level research in the field of spatial audio and technology for virtual, augmented and mixed reality, and discussion of technical solutions and recommended practices.
There will also be invited presentations from key researchers, practitioners and industry leaders, demonstrations, and panel discussions.



We wish to thank all of our sponsors for making this event possible!
