FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AES Lays Out “A World of Audio” for a Global Audience: AES Virtual Vienna Convention


— In its first global online event, the AES will offer a full convention experience through a variety of streaming, on-demand and interactive events —


New York, NY, May 15, 2020 — As the first-ever virtual convention hosted by the Audio Engineering Society approaches, anticipation grows over the chance to share convention sessions and interact with industry experts in a new and unique platform. The AES Virtual Vienna Convention will take place June 2 – 5 and will be accessible by anyone in the world with an available internet connection, offering an unprecedented chance to listen, learn and connect globally with audio peers and pros.

An Overview of the AES Virtual Vienna Convention
What: The AES Virtual Vienna Convention 2020 presents the finest traditions of AES Convention Technical Programs. The latest audio research, technologies, practical application, boundary-expanding experimentation and inspiration will be offered through Special Events, Keynote and Heyser presentations, Workshops, Tutorials, and Paper and Poster sessions.

The online streaming and on-demand format is tailored to the realities of a world practicing social distancing. Virtual Vienna will feature scheduled streaming content – nine hours a day with two independent streaming channels available on the final two days. A host of Convention paper, poster, tutorial, and additional Technical Program presentations will be available on demand to registered attendees during the Convention, and for some period of time after. Realtime Q&A with presenters will follow streamed presentations, and ongoing Q&A text dialog will be available on all sessions. Scheduled streaming presentations will be added to the on-demand library after airing.

AES Conventions are rich in student and career activities – for AES Virtual Vienna, that means new spins on Student Recording Competitions (drawing their largest ever number of submissions given that attendance is now online), critique sessions of student projects and the Education and Career Fair.

AES Virtual Vienna Convention sponsors, including Platinum Partner Genelec, Silver Partners Sound Solutions International and USound, along with sponsor Focusrite Pro, will present additional instructional, educational and informational content.

Where: Available on internet connections around the world

When: Scheduled streams: June 2 – 5, 11 AM – 8 PM Vienna time (UTC+2) / 5 AM – 2 PM EDT (UTC-4). “Prime time” each day will be 2 PM – 5 PM (UTC+2) / 8 AM – 11 AM (UTC-4). On-demand content will be available beginning June 2.

Who: Audio technology thought leaders including engineers, producers, students, educators and more working in recording and production, broadcast and streaming, acoustics and psychoacoustics, sound reinforcement, archiving and preservation, networked audio, product development and audio education.
