The adverse effects of excessive music exposure is widely recognized and addressed in modern societies, yet there is a continued need for innovative solutions that may help prevent hearing damage, or compensate intelligently when the damage is done. This conference intends to bring international focus on technological options for safer music exposure, such as hearing protection strategies and technology, conditions for populations at risk and risk behaviors, methods for sound exposure monitoring and assessment of hearing, among others. This will be the second AES conference on the topic, and following the success of the AES 47th Conference at Columbia College in Chicago, Illinois, USA, the organizing committee has decided to continue the important task of providing a forum to present and discuss the latest knowledge and technological advancements in hearing protection, hearing diagnosis, impact of musical sound exposure and more.
Proposed topics for papers:
Hearing Exposure Measurement and Control Devices
Surveys of Exposure Levels at Live Events and by Personal Music Players
Sound Level Management for Live Sound Events
