About the AES
The Audio Engineering Society is the foremost international organisation dedicated to the increasingly wide field of audio engineering. In the sixty years since it was founded, it has provided the industry with a world-wide framework for the advancement of both the science and art of audio.
A prime function of the AES is the dissemination of high-level technical information through the AES journal and AES conventions. The AES anthologies, a collection of selected groundbreaking AES papers, are an invaluable reference archive.
AES standards committees, technical committees and working groups provide an important international forum for the discussion and resolution of technical issues as diverse as equipment interconnection standards, preservation of historic recordings and protocols for sound system control.
The continued role of AES in advancing audio engineering requires the active participation of its individual members in the form of contributions to the Journal and membership of the various technical committees.
