Audio Engineering Society 130th Convention

13 May 2011 to 16 May 2011
London, UK

The AES 130th Convention Committee invites submission of technical papers for presentation at the 2011 May 13 to 16 meeting in London.

By 2011 January 5, a proposed title, 60- to 120-word abstract, and 500- to 750-word précis of the paper must be submitted electronically to the AES 130th proposal submission site at Submissions will be accepted starting approximately 2010 December 8. Presenting authors (one per paper) will receive a free CD-ROM of the papers.

Acceptance of proposed papers will be determined by a peer-review committee based on an assessment of the abstract and précis. Presenting authors who are student members and whose papers are accepted for presentation will be eligible for the Student Paper Award at the 130th. The précis must clearly describe the work performed, methods employed, conclusions, and significance of the paper with respect to other published work in the field. During the online submission process you will be asked to specify whether you prefer to present your paper in a lecture or poster session. Highly detailed papers are better suited to poster sessions, which permit greater interaction between author and audience. The convention committee reserves the right to reassign papers to any session. Whether a lecture or a poster, a complete electronic manuscript submitted before 2011 March 10 is required before the paper can be accepted for presentation at the convention. During the submission process, authors will be asked if their convention papers should be considered for possible publication in the AES Journal.
