New York (July 29, 2005)–Coordinating one of the most comprehensive presentation schedules in the AES’s 57-year history, 119th AES Convention papers chair James Johnston has posted a total of 120 individual sessions. 90 Lecture Papers and four Poster Sessions of 30 additional papers will provide attendees with a vast reservoir of knowledge and insight into innovative acoustical developments and applications.
“Since the first call for papers went out in January, we received over150 proposals, virtually all of which represented intriguing sources of meaningful information,” Johnston said. “Only the limits of time and space prohibited our reviewers from adding more papers to the schedule.” A primary researcher and algorithm inventor/designer for AT&T, James Johnston’s accomplishments are highlighted by his collaboration on the MPEG-2 Advanced Audio Coding Standard. Now associated with Microsoft Corp., he has performed extensive research into perceptual modeling of audio coding, soundfield perception and presentation, ancillary mathematics and science related to audio issues.
“JJ has developed an extremely strong papers program,” remarked 119th Convention co-chair Jim Anderson. “A concentration on such timely issues as Speakers, Coding, Multichannel Audio and Signal Processing will address areas that have generated considerable interest thanks to recent technical advances. Attendees are sure to benefit from this extraordinary array of speakers.”

Commenting on the Papers and Posters schedule, AES executive director Roger Furness explained that Papers are designed for audiences often numbering in the 100’s, while Posters were developed for smaller groups of 10 to 15. “Because Posters are often highly technical in nature, smaller groups provide enhanced interaction between speaker and participant,” he said, adding, “James Johnston has done an extraordinary job in developing this year’s Papers Program. We are not surprised, as this is JJ’s third time as NY Convention Papers chair, but we are appreciative.”
