AES 51st Conference – Loudspeakers and Headphones
Loudspeaker and headphone technology is going through a phase of rapid improvement. Driven both by the popularity of headphones and the needs of portable devices, miniature transducers are experiencing a very rapid change in design and manufacturing technologies. Traditional drivers also benefit from the same techniques and technologies. This is the perfect opportunity to summarize the current status, look backwards at the historical development and also take a look forward at new technology opportunities. As the conference aims to look at the entire field of loudspeaker and headphone technology, the organizers encourage both current research papers and the submission of historical, review and tutorial papers.
The call for contributions is now available from the conference website and online submission is open.
Deadline for full paper proposals: 2013 February 18

Double-column electronic manuscripts must be supplied by March 29, 2013.
