About the AES
We are the British Section of the Audio Engineering Society, an international organisation dedicated to audio engineering. For more than sixty years, the Society has provided the industry with a framework and forum for the advancement of the science and art of audio.
The AES is principally a learned society, publishing research, encouraging co-operation on best practice throughout the industry, and disseminating technical information through:
- The monthly AES Journal;
- Bi-annual conventions;
- Standards documentation;
- Anthologies of pre-eminent AES papers in many categories.
- Technical monographs and other publications.
AES standards committees, technical committees, and working groups provide internatinal opportunities for the discussion and resolution of technical issues. These include the standardisation of testing methods, interconnection standards, preservation of historic recordings, and protocols for sound system control.
The British Section

- Free regular lecture meetings throughout the country (non-members are welcome);
