The beautiful days and bright nights of Scandinavian summer, on the shores of the Baltic Sea, will set the atmosphere for the AES 22nd International Conference on Virtual, Synthetic and Entertainment Audio. The conference will be held on the picturesque campus of the Helsinki University of Technology, located in the city of Espoo, about 10 kilometers from Helsinki. This three-day conference will bring together researchers and developers in the field of virtual and synthetic audio as well as entertainment audio technologies and applications. 3-D audio and virtual acoustics are an active area of research, and will be a topic for several interesting sessions. Sound synthesis and modeling techniques will be discussed, with special emphasis on physical modeling of musical instruments. Research problems in audio coding, delivery and presentation as well as auditory scene analysis will be presented. Furthermore, perceptual issues and subjective testing will be discussed. In addition to the 8 paper sessions and 1 poster session, four distinguished speakers have been invited by the committee to cover up-to-date issues in the topic area of the conference. Prof. Jens Blauert, a true pioneer in spatial hearing research, will give a presentation on the compelling topic of instrumental analysis and synthesis of auditory scenes. Computational modeling and simulation of acoustic spaces, which is a very active area of research in acoustics, will be discussed by Prof. Peter Svensson. Dr. Xavier Rodet will present the current status and future challenges of research in singing voice synthesis, and Dr. Jürgen Herre will complete the prominent invited speaker lineup with a talk on an ever topical subject of audio coding and its role in entertainment technology. To complement the technical program, the conference committee, headed by co-chairs Nick Zacharov and Jyri Huopaniemi, has put together an exciting and eventful social program. A kickoff for the conference will be held on Friday evening June 14 at the Nokia Research Center head office in downtown Helsinki. The attendees will enjoy a cruise in the Helsinki Archipelago prior to the Banquette, and they will also be immersed in a traditional Finnish Experience, which will surely leave no one cold! We are looking forward to three days of high-quality technical presentations topped off with active and fruitful discussions and social events - a true technical and social gathering of audio experts from all over the world. We wish the audio engineering community warmly welcome to the AES 22nd International Conference!
