The inaugural AES International Conference on Audio for Virtual and Augmented Reality, to be held on September 30 and October 1, 2016, will be co-located with the 141st AES Convention at the Los Angeles Convention Center’s West Hall.
The two-day Conference, companion workshops, tutorials and manufacturer’s expo will throw a unique focus on the creative and technical challenges of providing immersive audio to accompany virtual-reality and augmented-reality media, which is demonstrably the fastest-growing community within the entertainment-audio markets.
It is intended to attract researchers, developers and creatives from a broad spectrum of complementary application fields, ranging from government, defense, scientific and geographic exploration to health & medicine, education, tourism and entertainment.
The conference program will provide an overview of the AR/VR creative process, applications workflow and product development, while creating an activity hub to focus attention on the Audio Engineering Society from these expanding creative communities. In addition to technical paper and poster sessions, the event will host invited presentations from key practitioners and industry leaders, demonstrations, panel discussions, tutorials, and workshops.
The target audience is content developers, researchers, manufacturers, consultants and students, in addition to audio engineers seeking to expand their knowledge about sound production for virtual and augmented reality. The companion Expo also will feature manufacturer and service provider participants seeking to secure industry metrics for this emerging field.
