34th AES Conference in Jeju Island, Korea 34th AES Conference in Jeju Island, Korea
New Trends in Audio for Mobile and Handheld Devices
Jeju Island, Korea / August 28-30, 2008

This 3-day conference aims to bring audio and system engineers together for the discussion of new trends in audio engineering for mobile and handheld devices. State-of-the-art handheld devices need high-quality sound and powerful functionality in small packages. Whereas the size of audio components has shrunk along with handheld devices, the importance of audio functionality has grown in the new generation of handheld devices. Recently, audio features and performance have become a major marketing feature of wireless handsets. On the other hand, portable music players have evolved into powerful multimedia devices with video and wireless-network capabilities.

This conference will be a timely discussion of the trends and future of the audio technologies for handheld devices. The issues to be discussed include new trends in audio coding, audio signal processing, synthetic audio, wireless delivery of audio, power-efficient audio technology, and implementation of audio subsystems for handheld devices.

Audio for Games Conference Call For Papers (Audio for Games)
The Audio Engineering Society is pleased to announce its first ever conference dedicated to audio for games, to be held February 11-13, 2009 at the Royal Academy of Engineering in London, UK. Current- and next-generation gaming platforms offer unprecedented levels of processing power specifically for audio. These changes facilitate a range of complex real-time audio architectures and DSP effects, offering creative possibilities never before seen in the areas of interactive sound design and music composition. Such developments in technology also present new challenges in audio programming and engineering, drawing on areas of multidisciplinary expertise that were not previously relevant.
