AES Show Spring Convention 2021: Technical Program details and events

The Audio Engineering Society has released Technical Program details and events for the upcoming AES Show Spring 2021 Convention, which runs May 25 – 28. 

A unique blend of educational events, workshops and tutorials, panel discussions and networking opportunities, the AES Show is designed to bring together audio engineers, students, researchers, educators and other industry luminaries eager to engage in all things audio. 

Reflecting the convention’s theme of ‘Global Resonance,’ this year’s sessions have been curated to offer insights on audio engineering technologies and techniques from a diverse array of presenters from around the world. 

Dell Technologies, Genelec, Harman and IMES (Iron Mountain Entertainment Services) are Platinum Partners, joined by Bronze Partners Comsol and New Audio Technology. 

The AES Show Spring Convention will offer three channels of content streamcast in Central European Summer Time, with additional sessions available on-demand. Streamcast sessions will join the on-demand library within 24 hours following their scheduled presentation to assure attendees a chance of catching nearly every event that the AES Show has to offer.

Convention Co-Chair Ruud Kaltofen said: “The latest in audio research, technology and application will be presented by the best minds in the industry. And, as the Technical Program is available to anyone with an internet connection, without travel expense or risk, and affordably priced, the opportunity to learn is simply outstanding.”

“The 150th Convention will build on the Society’s growing expertise in creating successful online events, continuing to improve the participant experience,” said Rafael Kassier, AES Show Spring 2021 Workshops & Tutorials Chair. “Along with outstanding content, we’ve worked diligently to include increased networking opportunities for attendees as well as interaction between attendees and presenters, the community aspect of AES Conventions that’s been so missed in a year of isolation.”
