1st Latin American Conference 1st Latin American Conference - Starts Sunday!
Multi-Channel Audio
August 19-21, 2007
Panamericano Hotel & Resort - Buenos Aires, Argentina

These three days in Buenos Aires are a must-go event for every person related to the fascinating Pro Audio world. The main topic, Multi-Channel Audio, takes into consideration the tremendous growth of the surround sound in the industry of Entertainment, as much as in everyday life.

This Conference aims to gather all professionals and students that have direct or indirect contact with the various fields of Multi-Channel Audio. The event's main goal is to facilitate the interchange of opinions and experiences among the participants, adding up to the presence (for the very first time in Latin America) of numerous Audio personalities with the highest level of recognition throughout the world. Registration and the Technical Program are now available.

AES Conference on DSP for Loudspeakers 32nd AES International Conference
DSP for Loudspeakers
September 21-23, 2007
Pharmakon - Hillerød, Denmark

Digital signal processing (DSP) offers loudspeaker system designers a very powerful set of tools. It may be as simple as a delay line, which hardly needs DSP anyway. Or it may be a precise and detailed filtering with just the desired magnitude and phase characteristics. Such filtering may be used to construct a single very accurate loudspeaker, or used for room correction, or it may be used to create beam-steering arrays or even wavefield synthesis. In addition to filtering, digital signal processing may be used for distortion compensation, or for enhancing the subjective performance by means of nonlinear processing. On the analysis side, DSP can be used to monitor in real time the state of the loudspeaker and model important driver parameters such as voice coil temperature. Through the last couple of decades, AES members have been in the forefront of this research.

Meanwhile, the maturity and price/performance ratio of essential system components such as processors, software development tools, AD/DA converters, and power amplifiers have reached a point where it makes commercial sense for a large part of the audio industry to apply loudspeaker-specific DSP in their products. Indeed, there are already classes of products completely depending on it.

This international conference aims to present the state of the art within the rich and still emerging field of loudspeaker-specific DSP and create an inspiring and synergetic meeting between professionals in the fields of electroacoustics, psychoacoustics, room acoustics, transducer physics, and DSP. Registration and the Preliminary Program are available online.

AES New York 2007 AES New York 2007 - Registration and Calendar Are Here!

123rd AES Convention
October 5-8, 2007
Javits Center - New York City

The 123rd Audio Engineering Society Convention Committee is entering the final stages of preparation for this year's event in NYC's Javits Center - Oct. 5-8. To aid attendees in optimizing the pre-planning of their visits, the AES has posted a Detailed Preliminary Calendar of Events. The easy-to-navigate, full-color schedule, includes program titles, participants and drop-down boxes of indispensable information. You can view it and the registration form on the convention website.

"The 123rd looms as one of the most exciting and information-intensive events in our 59 year history," said AES Executive Director Roger Furness. "The Committee has developed a far-ranging and extremely contemporary program. Workshops, Papers, Tutorials, Technical Tours, Platinum, Broadcast, Live Sound, Student, Historical and Special Events have all been focused on informing and inspiring our attendees."

Committee Chair Jim Anderson adds, "While there may be some last minute shuffling of times, locations and dates, The Preliminary Calendar will provide attendees with an extremely accessible overview of what we believe is an outstanding technical program. Planning their schedules around this template should simplify and optimize their Convention experience."

It's also not too late to book your hotel reservations at reduced rates.
