3rd AES International Conference on Music Induced Hearing Disorders

The Audio Engineering Society seeks presentations for this June 20-22, 2018 conference event in Chicago, IL, USA.

The Audio Engineering Society (AES) has issued a call for papers to be presented at its 2018 AES International Conference on Music Induced Hearing Disorders. This is the third AES conference on the topic, and will continue the important task of presenting and discussing advances in the state of the art in hearing loss diagnosis and prevention, as well as strategies, technologies, and devices related to safe yet impactful music production and reproduction. The event will take place at Columbia College in Chicago, IL, USA, June 20-22, 2018.

Researchers from both the audiology and pro audio fields are invited to submit papers for presentation at the conference. Proposed topics for presentation include: Music versus Noise as an Exposure Agent; Hearing Exposure Measurement and Control Devices; Sound Level Management for Live Events; Active and Passive Hearing Protection Devices; Hearing Loss in the Music Industry; Electronic Devices for Hearing Impaired Musicians and Sound Engineers; Standardization and Legislation of Exposure to Music; and other related topics. For a full list of suggested topics, please visit http://www.aes.org/conferences/2018/hearing/CFC.cfm .
