AES Papers co-chair Veronique Larcher

For the upcoming 133rd AES Convention in San Francisco, Papers Co-Chairs Veronique Larcher and Alan Seefeldt have assembled a four-day program of solidly researched presentations designed to share knowledge on both esoteric and widely discussed issues. 

“Our objective was to develop the most useful, timely, challenging and above all interesting issues to inform and inspire our attendees,” Larcher says. “The quality and diversity of the submissions we received enabled us to develop mult-faceted sessions covering such essential issues as networked audio, emerging audio technologies and auditory perception.

“A glance at the titles featured in these sessions substantiates their comprehensive intent,” she continues. “Attendees should note that all paper presentations are available in print and PDF/CD format, and they will be available in audio format following the convention.”
