Dublin Convention Wrap-Up


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

The 146th Convention drew to a close on March 23, wrapping up four days of audio science and education that drew attendees from 47 countries. “It was a pleasure to bring the AES convention to Dublin for the very first time,” commented Convention Co-Chair and Dublin resident Enda Bates, “and an excellent way to kick off the formation of the new AES Ireland regional section in style. It was also great to see a more diverse range of presenters and topics, something which was specifically highlighted by many attendees as a welcome development.”

One important outcome is that over 100 Papers and Engineering Briefs presented there have been posted in the AES E-Library. AES members get free access!

Among the awards presented at the Opening Ceremony, the prestigious AES Silver Medal was presented to Jamie A. S. Angus-Whiteoak for a lifetime of important contributions to audio engineering and instruction, and for outstanding achievement in the field of audio engineering.

I've compiled a set of links to papers and other resources to introduce you to some of the fundamental issues and challenges arising in audio coding.
