Seminars

These sessions will run in parallel with paper sessions. The seminars involve talks on practical aspects of surround sound with accompanying sound demonstrations (typically lasting 80 minutes) in most cases. The seminar room will be acoustically treated and will accommodate medium-sized groups (e.g., 50-100 persons). A number of sound demonstrations from the seminars will be repeated in the conference listening room, along with additional contributions.
