Shenzhen, China (December 18, 2017)—In November, Audio Engineering Society president David Scheirman presented the keynote speech for the 6th International Symposium on ElectroAcoustic Technologies (ISEAT 2017) in Shenzhen, China, discussing “Past, Present, and Future: an Overview of Large-Scale Loudspeakers Arrays.”
Founded in 2007 by Professor Shen Yong of Nanjing University, ISEAT is held every two years to promote technology exchange and learning in electroacoustics and related fields through scientific paper presentations, workshops and tutorials. This year’s event attracted more than 6,000 attendees, and more than 50 papers were presented, covering five primary technical topics: consumer electroacoustics, micro electroacoustics, professional electroacoustics, smart electroacoustics and architectural acoustics.
AES leaders and members included Scheirman, past president Sean Olive, fellow and silver medal recipient David Griesinger, and fellow and silver medal recipient Wolfgang Klippel. Also in attendance were ASA standards director Christopher Struck; Ning Xiang, associate editor of the JASA; Akira Mochimaru, senior specialist from Bose; and many other experts.
After his keynote, Scheirman discussed various aspects of AES membership and activities, spoke about AES’s dissemination of scientific research through various means and closed his presentation by thanking Professor Shen for his long-time contribution to the international electroacoustic field. At the same time, he noted that the AES would keep in close contact and maintain in-depth cooperation with ISEAT for further expansion of the Audio Engineering Society’s growing influence in China.
