Dublin Convention Keynote Announced


AES 146th Convention
Location: Convention Center, Dublin, Ireland
Dates: 20–23 March, 2019

It has recently been confirmed that Stefania Serafin, professor in sonic interaction design at Aalborg University, will give a keynote on "Inclusive Sonic Interactions" during the opening ceremonies. Sonic interaction design is a fertile field of investigation at the intersection of sound and music computing and interaction design. Stefania will focus on those who contribute to engage a wider and younger audience in sound, music and technology.

The initial deadline for paper and workshop proposals for the Dublin convention is fast approaching. If you want to submit a full paper for peer review, an abstract/precis proposal, or a proposal for a workshop/tutorial, you will need to enter it into the convention's EasyChair submission system by November 5. If you're planning an Engineering Brief, proposals can be made by early January. See the Call for Contributions for more information.

November Inside Track Features Automotive Audio

Inside Track

The AES Inside Track features expert industry curators highlighting a topic of choice, with editorial insight as well as links to related research topics, videos, and more. It's available exclusively through the AES Member Portal and is a member benefit, free to all AES members.

This month's curator is Alfred Svobodnik, chair of the Automotive Audio Technical Committee, and chair of the third Automotive Audio Conference due to be held in Germany next September, who introduces some key resources on the topic. As Alfred explains, over about the last five years the field moved from an infotainment topic to a sound design topic, supporting engineers in designing the vehicle’s sound – a fascinating new topic for audio.

This month's Spotlight video interview, hosted by Francis Rumsey, features Doyuen Ko talking about his paper in the September AES Journal about virtual acoustics for musicians.
