NEW DATES: JULY 22-24, 2021
Global public health conditions, which include significant regional variations, will continue to affect trade shows and academic conferences in 2021. Therefore, the Audio Education Conference is proceeding with plans for a fully online symposium, on or near the revised 2021 conference dates. Information about this online event will be posted here and distributed through AES social media channels as the details become available.
The AES will continue to monitor the status of the Coronavirus pandemic throughout the year ahead, and we are committeed to protecting the health and safety of the communities where we live and serve by following the requirements of all relevant local, state and federal authorities. Please stay informed and review the recommendations for your own personal protection at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
Peer-reviewed papers, interactive workshops and panel presentations, will form the core of the 2021 Audio Education Online Conference program. The content remains focused on audio education, including curricular resources, teaching strategies and professional development for—and from--industry trainers, faculty and staff who are active instructors at the high-school, undergraduate, graduate and professional levels.
Even before the COVID pandemic, industrial, technical and social changes were simultaneously reshaping media production, consumption and higher education. Remote and online learning are no longer niche practices. Machine learning and intelligent automation influence many aspects of media production. The economics and underlying technologies for entertainment and communication continue to evolve rapidly, affecting our students and their career prospects. In this environment, there's a lot for us to discuss and learn from each other.
Inevitably, there will be further changes to the details of contributors and events for the 2021 program, but we are certainly not starting over from scratch.
