Sound Demonstrations

These sessions will run in parallel with paper sessions. A number of sound demonstrations from the seminars will be repeated in the conference listening room, along with additional contributions. This room will also be acoustically treated to a high standard and will provide an opportunity for small groups to listen to selected sound demonstrations under more critical conditions.
