AES Cancels May 2020 Vienna Convention

With the health and safety of its attendees, membership, exhibitors, and staff being of utmost concern during the global COVID-19 pandemic, and following weeks of discussions with the host Austria Center Vienna, the Audio Engineering Society has officially canceled the live, in-person components of the AES Vienna 2020 Convention scheduled for May 25-28.

AES leadership, the Convention organizing committee, and headquarters staff are working diligently to organize the logistics of a virtualization of the Convention technical program into an engaging, compelling, educational, and productive online experience.  Details on the virtual Convention, which are being developed to include video presentations of papers, workshops, tutorials, tech tours, and other technical program content along with live- and forum-based dialog with presenters, will be shared as they become available.
