31st International AES Conference - New Directions in High Resolution Audio

June 25-27, 2007

London, UK


Submissions site now open! Please let the conference organizers know of your
intent to contribute or attend. Further detail available at


The 31st International Audio Engineering Society Conference, entitled New
Directions in High Resolution Audio, will be held at Queen Mary, University
of London, from June 25th-27th, 2007. 


This Conference is concerned with the promotion and delivery of high
resolution audio, by maintaining quality throughout the recording and
playback chain with current and future technologies. It reflects the
tremendous recent growth of high resolution audio techniques and products
intended for use throughout the audio recording and playback chain. However,
issues remain on how to avoid bottlenecks where quality is compromised, and
how to maintain and encourage high resolution audio in an everchanging
marketplace. These concerns are of interest to the audio engineering,
recording and production industries, as well as to education and academia. 


We aim to provide a place for the exchange of news, issues and results, by
bringing together researchers , developers, educators, students and
professional users, working in fields that contribute to high resolution
audio, to present original theoretical or practical work. It also serves as
a discussion forum, provides introductory and in-depth information in
specific domains, and showcases current products.


The 31st AES Conference solicits contributions to the field of high
resolution audio, including, but not limited to, the following domains and


High resolution recording issues

* Bandwidth, sampling rate, dynamic resolution and spatial representation. 

* Analog and digital recording equipment


Processing, manipulation and preparation of high resolution signals

* High quality analog design 

* A/D and D/A conversion 

* Format and sample rate interconversions

* High-resolution signal processing, 1 to n bit paradigms

* Spatial audio, virtual and acoustic spaces, virtual image manipulation


Storage of high resolution audio

* Current and future storage technology for high-density audio data

* Overview of high resolution consumer formats 

* Copy protection

* Access speed, data reliability, bit packing and compression

* Professional archival formats and future-proofing


Electronic delivery of high resolution audio

* Network (wired and wireless) systems/delivery of high quality audio

* Current and future formats for streaming and file delivery of high
resolution audio

* Bandwidth

* Digital radio and broadcast applications including multichannel audio


Maintaining quality at playback

* Evolving technology for multiformat players

* PC-based playback: configuration and interfacing 

* Converter technologies

* Jitter/interface/power supplies and other related forms of noise

* Digital amplification e.g., Class-D amplifiers 



* Perceptual modeling. 

* Objective evaluation and subjective performance of high-resolution audio 

* Objective measurement and resolution issues

* Subjective procedures and evaluation psychology





Submissions, which will be peer-reviewed, may be in the following

- paper (to be presented in the main sessions)

- poster or demonstration (to be presented in the poster sessions)

- original composition demonstrating features of high resolution audio (to
be showcased throughout the conference)

- tutorial, panel or workshop proposals (see conference web site for


Recording companies. publishers, software and hardware developers, etc., are
invited to contact the programme committee regarding exhibition space. 





Deadline for submissions of tutorials, panels and workshops: Feb. 2nd 2007.

Deadline for submissions of papers and posters/demos: Feb. 2nd 2007.

Deadline for exhibitor space: June 1st 2007.
