The Keynote Speaker is Florian Camerer. The title of his address is "Zen and the Art of Listening."

The world in 2015 is a noisy place. Car traffic, airplanes, construction sites, cellphone ringtones, music and muzak everywhere, … There is little chance to escape the constant beating of our eardrums. This has many consequences, not only for professional audio engineers, but for daily life, for relationships, for communication, for our sense of detail, for attentiveness, for subtlety. In this talk, focus will be put on raising the awareness for listening instead of hearing, for timing out instead of burning out, for opening the senses to receive something that is at the heart of communication since millennia: a story.
