AES 124th Convention Student Paper Award-winner Konrad Kowalczyk.Amsterdam, Holland (May 6, 2008)--A treatise on Modeling Frequency-Dependent Boundaries as Digital Impedance Filters in FDTD and K-DWM Room Acoustics Simulations has been selected as AES 124th Convention Student Paper Award recipient. The Convention will be held at the RAI in Amsterdam, May 17-20.
Culled from a field of over 40 submissions, the paper was authored by Konrad Kowalczyk and supervised by Maarten van Walstijn of the Sonic Arts Research Centre, Queen's University, Belfast, Northern Ireland.
John Strawn, chair of the AES Convention Policy Committee that oversees the competition, made the announcement.
"AES Papers submission standards are rigorous, and the competition for the Student Paper Award is intense," Dr. Strawn said. "Mr. Kowalczyk's paper reflects impressive research skills and offers an innovative approach to simulating room acoustics. This is a major step forward."
Mr. Kowalczyk will present his paper and receive the award on Monday, May 19. The paper will be published in the Journal of The Audio Engineering Society later this year.
Student Paper Award Nominees are required to meet the following qualifications: paper accepted for presentation at the AES 124th Convention; author was a student when the work was conducted and the manuscript prepared; the student author's affiliation is an accredited educational institution; and the student will deliver the lecture or poster presentation at The Convention.
The AES Student Paper Award competition is open twice a year. The next competition will be held in conjunction with the AES convention in San Francisco in October.
