AES 2024 International Acoustics & Sound Reinforcement Conference

Trade show
January 23, 2024 - January 25, 2024

Join us at AES 2024 International Acoustics & Sound Reinforcement Conference in Le Mans, France, from January 23rd to the 25th. The 4th International Audio Engineering Society Acoustics and Sound Reinforcement Conference will focus on topics in electroacoustic system design, hearing safety, noise pollution, and the future of sound reinforcement. This conference aims to bring together the minds of leading researchers and practitioners to discuss novel ideas and to foster the next generation of innovators in the industry through the promotion of inclusivity and diversity through student initiatives. We look forward to an exciting week of paper sessions, panels, and tours along with hands-on workshops in partnership with the Le Mans Sonore, an event happening in parallel to the conference which sits at the crossroads of music, design, contemporary art, and scientific research. L-Acoustics will participate in the panel and paper sessions below (find the full Event Schedule here).
