� The 144th International Audio Engineering Society Convention and Exposition, 23-26 May, Milan, Italy �

New York, NY � Embrace �The Power of Sound� with the Audio Engineering Society in Milan, Italy, at the 144th International AES Convention and Exposition, to be held at the spacious and modern NH Hotel Milano Congress Centre. The four-day technical program at AES Milan 2018 will run May 23 through 26, while the expo will be open May 24 through 26.

As the most prominent city in Northern Italy, Milan is a technology and manufacturing stronghold in the heart of a nation characterized by old-world charm and world-renowned as an incubator of innovation. The thinker-craftsman-inventor culture of Italy is notably linked to Leonardo da Vinci, who stands in history as one of the great minds blending science and art. From the father of radio, Guglielmo Marconi, through the Olivetti corporation (inventor of the typewriter and the first programmable desktop computer) to auto-makers Fiat and Ferrari, the many unique and successful technical design and manufacturing firms found throughout Italy have a demonstrable legacy of technological innovation blended with aesthetic style and manufacturing prowess.

�Italy has become a key center-of-gravity for pro audio in the Mediterranean region, increasingly known for the design and manufacture of amplifiers, transducers and loudspeaker systems of all types,� commented AES President-Elect David Scheirman, who will ascend to the Presidency this fall and preside over AES Milan 2018. �Numerous respected professional audio brands throughout Italy are built upon a historical and globally-known heritage of invention, construction, manufacturing and global export, inspiring the �Power of Sound� theme for the 144th AES International Convention.�

The Technical Program at AES Milan will feature a proven mix of sessions covering the latest in audio research, practical workshops and fundamentals tutorials, covering the gamut of professional audio. The program will reflect the title �The Power of Sound� through an emphasis on loudspeaker components, speaker system technology and audio power amplification, taking advantage of regionally available expertise. The companion technology exhibition will house leading manufacturers with wares on hand for demonstration and evaluation, along with educational presentations on the show floor. Individuals with ideas for workshops and tutorials for AES Milan can now view the call for proposals and authors can additionally view the call for papers and engineering briefs.
