SAN FRANCISCO: Returning to SF for the first time since 1998, the 117th Audio Engineering Society “Art Of Audio” themed convention will grace the Moscone Convention Center, Oct. 28 – 31, 2004. AES executive director Roger Furness reports that an outstanding series of Tutorials, Workshops, Papers, Exhibits and Special Events has been developed by, “one of the most dedicated and highly professional Convention Committees in our history.”
