AES 134th Convention 2013 : Audio Engineering Society 134th Convention
Call For Papers
Authors may submit proposals in three categories:
1. Complete-manuscript peer-reviewed convention papers (submit at www.aes.org/134th_authors)
2. Abstract-precis-reviewed convention papers (submit at www.aes.org/134th_authors)
3. Synopsis-reviewed engineering briefs (submit at www.aes.org/134th_ebriefs)
Category 1 and 2 proposals are to be submitted electronically to the AES 134th proposal submission site at www.aes.org/134th_authors
by 2012 December 19.
For the complete-manuscript peer-reviewed convention papers (category 1), authors are asked to submit papers of 4–10 pages to the
submission site. Papers exceeding 10 pages run the risk of rejection without review. These complete-manuscript papers will be reviewed
by at least two experts in the field, and authors will be notified of acceptance by 2013 January 31. Final manuscript with revisions
requested by the reviewers have to be submitted before 2013 February 21. If rejected as a convention paper (Cat. 1), the proposal may
still be accepted for categories 2 or 3.
For abstract-precis-reviewed proposals (Cat. 2), a title, 60-to 120-word abstract, and 500- to 750-word précis of the proposed paper must
be submitted by 2012 December 19. Authors will be notified of acceptance by 2013 January 10, and the authors must submit their
final manuscripts (4 to 10 pages) before 2013 February 21. If rejected from this category, the proposal may be still be accepted as an
engineering brief (Cat. 3).
Both complete-manuscript peer-reviewed papers (Cat. 1) and abstract-precis-reviewed papers (Cat. 2) will be available on the CD-ROM
of convention papers, and also later in the AES E-Library (www.aes.org/e-lib). If a paper is longer than 10 pages, the author will be
charged a fee of $25 for every page over 10.
For engineering briefs (Cat. 3), authors must supply a short synopsis by 2013 February 14 to indicate their desire to present an engineering brief, followed later by an electronic manuscript. These manuscripts will be freely available in the AES E-Library to AES members, and there will be no paper copies. Topics for the engineering briefs can be very wide-ranging. Relaxed reviewing of submissions
will consider mainly whether they are of interest to AES convention attendees and are not overly commercial. PDF manuscripts 1–5
pages in length following the prescribed template must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 2013 March 27.
Presenting authors (one per paper for all 3 categories) will be required to pay the full convention registration fee (member and student
member rates are lower than nonmember rates), and only then will the presenting author receive a free CD-ROM of the convention
papers. Presenting authors who are student members and whose convention papers (Cat. 1 or 2) are accepted will be eligible for the
Student Paper Award at the 134th. During the online submission process you will be asked to specify whether you prefer to present your
paper in a lecture or poster session. Highly detailed papers are better suited to poster sessions, which permit greater interaction between
author and audience. The convention committee reserves the right to reassign papers to any session, lecture or poster. The submission
sites, www.aes.org/134th_authors (Cat. 1 and 2) and www.aes.org/134th_ebriefs (Cat. 3), will be available by early November.
