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 races, gender and gender identities, physical abilities, ages, and nationalities.

 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 submissions, please feel free to reach out to the Co-Chairs at

Call for Papers

Papers Co-Chairs: Areti Andreopoulou and Braxton Boren. 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 155th Convention.


Authors may submit proposals in one of  three categories:

  1. Complete-manuscript peer-reviewed convention papers
  2. Extended-summary-reviewed Express Papers
  3. JAES Papers
Submitting a Proposal
Complete-manuscript peer-reviewed convention papers (Category 1)

Submission deadline extended to June 15, 2023

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 July 31, 2023. Final manuscript with revisions requested by the reviewers have to be submitted before September 29, 2023. If rejected as a convention paper (Category 1), the proposal may still be submitted for Category 2.

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 for 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 August 4, 2023. Authors will be notified of acceptance by August 21, 2023, and the authors must submit their final manuscripts (4 to 8 pages) before September 29, 2023.

JAES Papers

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 September 2022 until July/August 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 155th submission system for JAES papers by August 4, 2023. Authors will be notified of acceptance by August 21, 2023

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.


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.

(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 author for each paper in categories 1 and 2 or JAES papers will be required to pay a Presenting Author Fee which will be less than the Early Bird general registration rate.

This payment is required 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.

Presenting Authors, please wait for instructions that will be sent out with the acceptance information.

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.

Open Access

Authors can pay an additional fee to make papers Open Access. See our Open Access page for more information.


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 155th 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.
