This contact link can also be used by anyone interested in serving as a paper reviewer. We will be using blind reviews for the 153rd 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 Express Papers
Submitting a Proposal

Proposals are to be submitted electronically:

Category 1 by July 17, 2022

Category 2 by August 1, 2022

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 August 31, 2022. Final manuscript with revisions requested by the reviewers have to be submitted before September 23, 2022. If rejected as a convention paper (Category 1), the proposal may still be submitted for Category 2.

For extended-summary-reviewed proposals (Category 2), a title and 300-750 word summary of the proposed paper must be submitted by August 14, 2022. Authors will be notified of acceptance by August 31, 2022, and the authors must submit their final manuscripts (4 to 8 pages) before September 23, 2022.

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.)

Downloadable template:

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 and 2 will be required to pay a Presenting Author Fee at the following applicable rate:

  • AES members (Life member* / Fellow / Member / Associate categories): $395
  • AES student members: $95
  • Non AES members: $540

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

A presenting author invoice and further details will be sent with the paper acceptance notice.

Authors presenting more than one paper in categories 1 and/or 2 are only required to pay one Presenting Author Fee.

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

*Note: While Life Members have the privilege of no-cost All Access registration, Life Members who are Presenting Authors in categories 1 and 2 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 153rd Convention. 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.


Information will be available soon.
