UK: Organised by the Institute of Acoustics' Electroacoustics Group in collaboration with the ABTT, APRS and ISCE, this year's Reproduced Sound conference and exhibition will take place at one of Britain's most acclaimed and dynamic new venues - The Sage in Gateshead. With the subtitle 'Hall of Sound: Audio for live events', the conference will take place on November 29th/30th, reports David Davies.

Topics that may face scrutiny at this year's event - the 23rd - are likely to include at least some of the following: sound monitoring for live recording and broadcast; microphones and their use; stage monitor systems; maintaining quality in sound transmission systems; sound reinforcement, and acoustic issues in multi-purpose music halls.

Accordingly, the IoA has now issued a call for papers on topics related to sound reinforcement, room acoustics, recording (audio and video), broadcast, loudspeakers and microphones, intelligibility and innovations.

Those wishing to submit a paper on the above or other electroacoustic topics should send an abstract of 200 words to Linda Canty (linda.canty@ioa.org.uk) by June 15th. Notification of accepted papers will be mailed by June 25th, with final written papers (on CD) to be received by October 26th.

Paul Malpas - a Reproduced Sound organising committee member and head of the electroacoustics design team at Arup Acoustics - tells PSN-e that the intention is "to continue to engender the mix of highly informative content with informal social contact, allowing the best chance of making valuable and enjoyable links with the people making a difference to our industry. As ever, the content will be of interest to practitioners, academics, consultants, manufacturers, contractors and end-users, bringing these essential elements of audio success together under one roof."
