Early Registration Deadline May 18: 31st International AES Conference - New Directions in High Resolution Audio

(apologies if you receive multiple copies)

The 31st International Audio Engineering Society Conference -  
"New Directions in High Resolution Audio"
Queen Mary, University of London, f25th-27th, 2007.   REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN
Registration for the Conference is now open please use the weblink http://www.aes.org/events/31/registration.htm to download the registration forms and further information regarding accommodation.
This Conference is concerned with the promotion and delivery of high resolution audio, by maintaining quality throughout the recording and playback chain with current and future technologies. It reflects the tremendous recent growth of high resolution audio techniques and products intended for use throughout the audio recording and playback chain. However, issues remain on how to avoid bottlenecks where quality is compromised, and how to maintain and encourage high resolution audio in an ever changing marketplace. These concerns are of interest to the audio engineering, recording and production industries, as well as to education and academia.
