As the Audio Engineering Society gears up for its 140th International Convention, taking place at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, France, from June 4 through 7, 2016, both exhibition and attendee registration are on-pace for century-high numbers, making for one of the most exciting AES Europe conventions in recent memory. As part of the AES’s continued growth, the AES Paris Convention will once again feature top presenters and technologies through its Special Events program, which presents many of the AES Convention mainstay highlights, as well as new features, and is open to Exhibits-Plus badge-holders, as well as premium All Access attendees.
The AES Paris convention will kick off, as is customary, with the Opening Ceremonies, which will feature remarks from AES President John Krivit, Executive Director Bob Moses, and AES Paris Convention Chair Michael Williams, as well as AES Special Awards presentations by Awards Committee Chair Sean Olive. Additionally, this year’s keynote speaker, Alex U. Case, President Elect of the AES, will set the tone for the Convention with a presentation entitled “Intuition, Rebellion, Courage, and Chance – Historic Moments of Creative Signal Processing That Resonate to This Day.” Day one Special Events also include the presentation “Podcasting – Telling Your Story with Sound,” presented by award-winning engineer Jim Anderson, and conclude with this year’s highly-anticipated Richard C. Heyser Memorial Lecture by distinguished researcher Rozenn Nicol, who will be presenting on “The 3D Audio Revolution from Labs to Mass Market.” More »
