The AES 129th Convention Committee invites submission of technical papers for presentation at the 2010 November 4–7 meeting in San Francisco. By 2010 July 7, a proposed title, 60- to 120-word abstract, and 500- to 750-word précis of the paper must be submitted electronically to the AES 129th proposal submission site at www.aes.org/129th_authors. Submissions will be accepted starting approximately 2010 March 17. Presenting authors (one per paper) who are members of the AES or student members will be required to pay 60% of the member or student convention registration fees and they will receive a CD-ROM of the papers. Presenting authors who are nonmembers will pay the full nonmember registration fee and receive a CD-ROM. Acceptance of proposed papers will be determined by a review committee based on an assessment of the abstract and précis. Presenting authors who are student members and whose papers are accepted for presentation will be eligible for the Student Paper Award at the 129th. The précis must clearly describe the work performed, methods employed, conclusions, and significance of the paper with respect to other published work in the
field. 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. Whether a lecture or a poster, a complete electronic manuscript submitted before 2010 September 8 is required before the paper can be accepted for presentation at the convention. During the submission process, authors will be asked if their convention papers should be considered for possible publication in the AES Journal.
