NEW YORK:With the culmination of fine-tuning for the eagerly awaited 131st AES Convention, comes the posting of the Preliminary Event Calendar. Chock full of descriptive abstracts, dates, times and presenter details, the PEC represents a full year of intensive activity. The volunteer Convention Committee focused on developing timely, meticulously researched and impossible to duplicate: Broadcast/Streaming, Education, Game Audio, Historical, Live Sound, Master Class, Paper, Platinum, Product Design, Special Events, Tech Tours, Tutorials and Workshops. A microcosm of the Convention itself, the AES PEC symbolizes the very best that the pro audio industry and the AES have to offer.
"We have made every effort to develop the most user-friendly format for this year's PEC," reports Committee Chair Jim Anderson. "Easy to read, drop-down abstracts are imbedded within the color-coded grid. Dates and times are clearly illustrated. Although there will always be the occasional, unanticipated last minute change, we invite attendees to begin to plot their daily schedules now using the PEC as their map.
"We send a huge vote of appreciation to all our Chairs and Co-Chairs for their Herculean efforts," Anderson says. "Broadcast & Streaming Events Chair, David Bialik; Education Chair John Krivit; EE Co-Chairs, Bob Moses and Jonathan Novick; Games Track Chair, Steve Martz; Facilities Chair, Michael McCoy; Historical Chair, Harry Hirsch; Live Sound Co-Chairs Henry Cohen and Mac Kerr; Master Class Chair, Alan Silverman; Papers Co-Chairs Veronique Larcher and Agnieszka Roginska; Technical Tours Chair, Lou Manno; Volunteers Chair, Doron Schacter and Workshops/Tutorials Chair Natanya Ford," have performed a series of miracles. Additionally, we all join in a special vote of thanks to AES Executive Director Roger Furness for his rock steady leadership," Anderson concludes. "Without his help and guidance it would be impossible to develop a program of this complexity and magnitude."
