session is to give audio students a broad overview of the whole field of

reproduction. Experts from the field will explain the fundamentals and will use
sound examples to clarify things. Of course there will be plenty room for
discussion as well. Although this session is part of the student program, it
will certainly be of interest to non-student visitors as well, who are
therefore also welcome to attend!
