The Audio Engineering Society has released its technical programme and events calendar for the upcoming 140th AES International Convention at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, France, from June 4 to 7.

Available both online and through the AES Events mobile app, the 140th AES Convention calendar offers complete details on papers, engineering briefs, workshops and tutorials, special events, student and career activities, and more.

Information on the growing list of companies displaying the latest gear and technologies on the AES exhibition floor have also been posted.

This year’s Paris Convention will once again present four days of professional audio research and technology by many of the biggest names in the industry, exploring a wide array of topics and issues from the past, present, and future of audio. Immersive sound, including numerous listening opportunities, appears throughout the programme.

Papers and engineering briefs sessions will showcase the work of over 120 researchers on topics ranging from 3D recording and reproduction, binaural listening, bluetooth technologies, digital filter design, and other in-depth areas of interest, while workshop events will bring together panels of experts to a range of topics including music production for film, wind noise in microphones, expert transfer techniques, and more.

Also popular at AES conventions are the tutorials sessions, which provide a varied horizon of presentations on important audio fundamentals, for beginners and seasoned professionals alike, on 3D and binaural listening, audio forensics and sound design, to name a few. Student and career development events throughout the convention include a career and education fair, recording competition and critiques, student delegate assemblies, and other networking opportunities.

Unique to this convention is also a series of special events called Audio Projections, which presents attendees the opportunity to just ‘listen and enjoy.’
