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.


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

AES Conference and Convention papers are also listed in Scopus.

We are seeking experts and professionals involved in game audio as well as those engaged in other areas of professional audio to participate in workshops, tutorials, and demonstrations. These sessions aim to cover a range of topics related to game audio, including production techniques for creating immersive experiences, specific methods for crafting interactive sound, and both direct and indirect knowledge and technologies that will likely be applied to game audio in the future. 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 March 29, 2024. Notifications regarding acceptance will be sent no later than April 22, 2024.
