US: A sophisticated user interface and "enhanced social networking" are among the features of the new-look site, reports PSN-e. The radically-overhauled site was put together by a web development team comprising leader Nick Zacharov, webmaster Steve Johnson, graphic designer Josh Tidsbury, and copywriters Peter Cook and Michael Fleming.

Intended to be highly user-friendly, the new site offers features including a job board, podcasts, tutorial content from AES conventions and video excerpts from Oral History interviews. It also provides users with new methods by which they can connect with fellow audio professionals around the world.

"We allow members to create a profile on our site so that other members or potential clients can read about their skill set, link to their website, or simply get back in touch," said Steve Johnson. "A good example would be the profile of our president (www.aes.org/aes/jimanderson) where you can see his photo and contact him about AES matters or just say hello."

The AES electronic library now includes more than 12,000 scientific papers, while visitors can also make use of the site's additional news feeds.

According to AES president Jim Anderson, the new site "provides some fantastic new social networking features with direct links to committees, Facebook-style member profiles and a highly sophisticated publication search engine. The time and energy devoted to this project will be paying dividends to our entire industry for many years to come."
