Submission Guidelines

The Audio Engineering Society is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the audio community. We encourage submissions to AES events from all audio professionals. We welcome diverse genres, embrace emergent audio fields and research, and strive to radiate inclusiveness to all.

Proposals describing work in the area of Audio for Virtual and Augmented Reality will be considered for inclusion in the conference sessions. A detailed list of proposed topics is given below. Please also take the time to review the AES Convention and Conference Author Guidelines before submitting.

Papers Chairs: Stefania Serafin and David Alon (contact papers chairs)

Peer Reviewed Papers (Category 1)

Authors are asked to submit a complete manuscript of a maximum of 10 pages to the submission site by May 17, 2024. These complete manuscript papers will be reviewed by at least two experts in the field and the authors will be notified of acceptance by June 17, 2024.

We will be using blind reviews for this Conference.

Downloadable Templates

AES uses blind reviewing, there is no field for author names on the templates. Please do not put author names. New templates will be sent at the time of acceptance,  to authors whose papers are accepted.

Download the LaTeX template here (Category 1). 

Download the Word template here (Category 1).

**IMPORTANT NOTE** There have been some issues reported with the LaTeX templates. In your Overleaf project, if you delete the file latexrelease.sty so that the compiler can use the updated version that has been installed in the system itself, the project should compile without errors.

Abstract/Precis (Category 2) Authors are asked to submit an extended summary of 300-750 words by May 17, 2024. These proposals will be reviewed by at least two experts in the field and the authors will be notified of acceptance by June 17, 2024.

Call for Workshops

Papers Chairs: Agnieszka Roginska and Scott Selfon (contact workshops chairs)

We are seeking experts and professionals involved in audio for virtual and augmented reality as well as those engaged in other areas of professional audio to participate in workshops, tutorials, and masterclasses. These sessions aim to cover a range of topics related to virtual and augmented reality, including research and implementation, recording, production, and content creation. Proposals should include a title, an abstract (60-120 words), and a description (up to 500). Additionally, the submission should include the number and names of presenters, presentation format (single presenter, panel discussion, etc.), preferred presentation duration, and a list of topics and technical requirements (sound requirements during the presentation, such as stereo, multichannel, etc.). The deadline for workshop submissions is May 17, 2024. Notifications regarding acceptance will be sent no later than June 10, 2024.

Publication

Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings. The papers will be published in the AES E-Library no earlier than 10 days before the conference starts.

AES Conference and Convention papers are also listed in Scopus.

Authors will have the option of submitting Open Access papers. For further information see http://www.aes.org/openaccess/

Proposed Topics

Audio for Virtual and Augmented Reality

Research in audio for virtual and augmented reality:
  • Spatial sound capture
  • Binaural reproduction over headphones and loudspeakers (dummy head equalization, crosstalk-cancellation, up-mixing)
  • Multichannel rendering (wave field synthesis, Ambisonics)
  • 3D sound field navigation
  • Object-based audio
  • HRTF modeling and derivation from optical and/or acoustic measurements
  • Virtual environment modeling (synthetic sound fields, reverberation)
  • Spatial audio quality, compression, streaming, and latency
  • Spatial perception and psychoacoustics
  • Listening tests and evaluation
  • VR/AR/MR audio perception and enhancement
  • Smart audio for VR/AR/MR
  • Hardware and calibration for VR/AR/MR audio
  • Transparent hearing applications and hardware

Implementation, recording, production, and content creation:
  • Audio capture and synthesis (recording, synthetic sound fields)
  • Audio production for VR/AR (3D mixing, mastering, effects, tools, software)
  • Sound design for VR/AR
  • Music composition for VR/AR
  • AR/VR audio in streaming and broadcast (Television, Radio, IP) applications
  • Telepresence and live AR/VR audio production
  • Applications in VR/AR (case studies)
  • Developing Audio Standards for VR/AR Applications
  • Audio for Location based installations (entertainment etc.)
  • Audio in Enterprise applications

Peer Reviewed Papers

Papers may be submitted by a single author or a group of authors. For each paper, a single “presenting author” is designated on the paper submission website – usually the person who will present the paper at the Conference. The presenting author will be required to pay a Presenting Author Fee at the following reduced rates:

  • Author Fee (member): $490
  • Author Fee (Nonmember): $615
  • Student Author: $325

Authors presenting more than one paper are only required to pay one Presenting Author Fee.

Co-authors of a paper are welcome, and encouraged, to attend but should register via the public registration website.

Presenting Authors will receive registrations instructions with their acceptance notice.

Workshops/Tutorials

All Workshop presenters are required to pay a conference registration fee at the following applicable rate:
