March 10, 2011 - Call for Engineering Briefs, Call for Audio Networking Papers, Job Board Update, New Journal
Table of Contents
AES convention attendees have expressed a desire for more application-oriented papers. Our current Convention Papers and Posters are largely research-oriented, but we have a lot of engineers and practitioners who would appreciate presentations of a more practical nature. To this end we are instituting a new presentation initiative called Engineering Briefs. These are intended to be short verbal talks or poster presentations that will be of interest to AES members. However, for this first time at the upcoming London AES Convention, only posters will be accepted, to facilitate planning. Contributors must supply a short synopsis to indicate their desire to present an Engineering Brief, followed later by an electronic manuscript.
Topics for the Engineering Briefs can be very wide-ranging, such as studio experience, equipment construction, new loudspeaker concepts, room acoustic measurements, analysis of audio equipment, and project studio startups, to name just a few. Relaxed reviewing of submissions will consider mainly whether they are of interest to AES convention attendees and are not overly commercial. Double-column electronic manuscripts will be restricted to 4 pages in length, and they will be available for all members on the AES website, but there will be no paper copies. For more information, please see the Call for Engineering Briefs.
130th Program, Registration and Hotel information will be available soon.
AES 44th International Conference, 2011
Recent advances in networking technology and the availability of high-bandwidth connectivity have made audio networking a rapidly growing area in the AES. Increasingly, broadcasters connect with remote correspondents and audiences via the Internet, audio installations communicate in-house and with distant collaborators using LANs or WANs, businesses hold intercontinental meetings via high-definition video conferencing systems, and musicians perform together over thousands of miles in distributed concerts. The AES 44th International Conference will focus on recent advances in audio networking, including applications for live sound, studio installations, commercial applications, archiving and preservation, remote auditioning, pedagogy, performance over networks, and other use cases. In addition to paper sessions, the conference will consist of invited speakers, panel discussions of topics central to audio networking, and several invited technology demonstrations.
The Committee will be accepting submissions of FULL PAPERS. Four- to ten-page papers should be submitted no later than June 7, 2011. All papers should be clearly related to issues in audio networking. During the online submission process, you will be asked whether you wish your paper to be considered for an upcoming special issue of the AES Journal devoted to topics in audio networking. You can read a list of proposed topics and other details in the Call for Papers (PDF).
The AES Job Board is where our sustaining members post their latest job openings. As an AES member you have exclusive access to this list. The most recent postings can be found here:
The deadline for submitting full length papers to the 42nd Conference on Semantic Audio has been extended to March 13, 2011. You can read the Call for Papers for full details.
