The 134th AES Convention is scheduled for May 4 to May 7 at Rome’s Fontana di Trevi Conference Centre. More than 140 Papers Sessions, Workshops, Tutorials, Engineering Briefs, Student and Career Development events have been developed for this Convention.

“We have coordinated a full program of distinguished speakers, timely tracks, and stimulating special events designed to provide information, inspiration in an incomparable setting,” states Convention Chairman Umberto Zanghieri. “Established audio pros and students preparing for next-generation jobs will benefit immeasurably from this convention experience.

“In addition to an extraordinary technical and educational program, the Convention will feature special displays by over a dozen prominent Sponsors,” Zanghieri continues. “We are pleased to welcome Audio Precision, Audiomatica Srl, B&C Speakers, bdSound, CharterOak Acoustics, Crane Song Ltd., EKO Music Group, Fairlight Europe, Klippel GmbH, LAMBDA s.r.l., Microtech Gefell GmbH, RCF, Trinnov Audio and ZP Engineering srl, and we thank them for their support.”

The Convention will also host Standards Committee and Technical Council Meetings. A variety of social events have been coordinated to support enhanced one-to-one connectivity throughout the four-day event.

The 134th AES Convention technical program is highlighted by five Convention Tracks developed to offer perspectives on Live Sound, loudness issues, recording techniques, spatial sound and Sound For Picture.

Papers Co-Chairs Veronique Larcher and Angelo Farina and their review committee evaluated more than a hundred submissions. Subjects include Improving Listening Ability Using E-Learning Methods, and Evaluation of Acoustic Features for Music Emotion Recognition.

Workshop and Tutorials Programs will address topics ranging from 3-D Audio Automotive Applications, Multichannel Immersive Audio Formats for 3-D Cinema and Home Theater, and Creative Distortion.

“Every AES Convention offers a unique opportunity for acquiring real-world insights from recognized leaders in professional audio,” says Zanghieri. “The benefits of interacting with product developers, researchers, educators, students and peers are pillars of AES events. The fact that Rome is our host city makes this Convention even more compelling,” he concludes.
