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.

In an effort to demystify the submission process, AES partnered with Soundgirls to provide a webinar on “How to Submit a Paper.” If you have any questions or concerns regarding paper submissions, please feel free to reach out to the Co-Chairs at 154th_papers@aes.org

Call for Technical Sessions (Workshops and Tutorials)

For questions about this category of submission, contact the convention workshops chair at 154th_workshops@aes.org.

Call for Papers

Papers Co-Chairs: Sebastian J. Schlecht and Nils Peters. Contact Papers Chairs

This contact link can also be used by anyone interested in serving as a paper reviewer. We will be using blind reviews for the 154th Convention.

Proposals describing work in any area of audio engineering and its related arts and sciences will be considered for inclusion in convention 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.


Authors may submit proposals in two categories:

  1. Complete-manuscript peer-reviewed convention papers
  2. Extended-summary-reviewed convention papers
Submitting a Proposal

Peer-Reviewed (Category 1) proposals are to be submitted electronically to the AES 154th submission system for papers by January 27, 2023.

Peer-reviewed papers (Category 1) submissions are closed.

Express Papers (Category 2) proposals are to be submitted electronically to the AES 154th submission system for Express Papers by February 17, 2023.

Expess papers (Category 2) submissions are closed.

For the complete-manuscript peer-reviewed convention papers (Category 1), authors are asked to submit papers of 4–10 pages to the submission site. These complete-manuscript papers will be reviewed by at least two experts in the field, and authors will be notified of acceptance by March 3, 2023. Final manuscript with revisions requested by the reviewers have to be submitted before April 9, 2023. If rejected as a convention paper (Category 1), the proposal may still be accepted for category 2. 

For Express Papers (Category 2), authors are asked to submit  an extended summary of 300-750-words to indicate their desire to present an Express Paper (recommended length 4-8 pages for the final manuscript). Submissions will be peer reviewed based on merit and interest to the AES community and to ensure that any presentations will not be of a commercial nature. Topics of Express Papers can be very wide-ranging, encompassing experimental, application-driven and/or early stage research. The title and 300-750 word summary of the proposed paper must be submitted by February 24, 2023.   Authors will be notified of acceptance by March 3, 2023, and the authors must submit their final manuscripts (4 to 8 pages) before April 9, 2023.

For all categories, papers exceeding 10 pages run the risk of rejection without review. If such a paper is accepted the author will be charged a fee of $25 for every page over 10.

(Note that the submission site login is NOT the same as your AES login. You will need to create an EasyChair account if you have not submitted via that platform before.)

Call for JAES Presentations

Authors of papers in the Journals of the AES will have the opportunity to present their work, subject to space availability and approval by the Papers Co-Chairs. Only papers published from January 2022 until February 2023 are eligible for presentation. The papers presented at the convention will neither be reviewed nor included in the proceedings.

The title and abstract of the JAES paper must be submitted to the 154th submission system for JAES papers by February 17, 2023. Authors will be notified of acceptance by March 3, 2023

Downloadable templates

Paper acceptances have been sent out by email. The templates are available to accepted authors in Easychair. Please login to the submission website with your Easychair login.

**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.


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 Convention. The presenting authors for each paper in categories 1, 2 & JAES will be required to pay a Presenting Author Fee at the following applicable rate:

  • AES members (Life member* / Fellow / Member / Associate categories): $225
  • AES student members: $72
  • Non AES members: $350

These amounts are required payment for all presenting authors in categories 1 & 2 and JAES Presentations. No additional registration fee will be required; all Presenting Authors will receive a free registration on payment of their Presenting Author Fee.

Further details will be sent with the paper acceptance notice.

Authors presenting more than one paper in categories 1, 2 & JAES Presentations, are only required to pay one Presenting Author Fee.

Co-authors of a paper are welcome, and encouraged, to attend but will require a registration to access the sessions.

*Note: While Life Members have the privilege of no-cost All Access registration, Life Members who are Presenting Authors in any category are required to pay the Presenting Author Fee.

Publication in the E-Library

All convention papers will be available in the AES E-Library no earlier than 10 days before the convention starts. All individual AES members now have free access to the E-Library. For any non-member author paying the non-member price, a year’s membership is included and will give them access to the Convention papers in the E-Library.



Presenting authors who are student members and whose convention papers (Category 1 or 2) are accepted will be eligible for the Student Paper Award at the 154th; peer-reviewed Category 1 papers are given preference by the award judges.

Presenting authors of accepted Category 1 papers will be eligible for the Best Peer-Reviewed Paper Award.


The 154th convention will be held in-person only in Finland.

Further information will be available soon.
