After a series of meetings, the Audio Engineering Society has announced the formation of the first AES section in China.
“The seriousness and passion demonstrated by the AES members I met with in Beijing was deeply impressive,” said Peter Cook, AES Regions & Sections chair. “They are fully committed to all the fundamental elements that make the AES an invaluable forum for professional audio. They enthusiastically recommended highly qualified local vice-chairs to be responsible for: education, research, broadcast applications and other areas of universal AES concern.”
Shusen Wang, chair of the new Beijing section, said that they will work closely with the AES parent organization to introduce Chinese experts to relevant technical committees; to invite them to submit research papers and to introduce Chinese stakeholders to standards committee chairs.
“The AES has many individual members in China. We believe our new Beijing Section will sustain a long and mutually beneficial ongoing relationship with China’s professional audio community,” said Bob Moses, AES executive director. “This move exemplifies our plan to expand the AES mission and support our ongoing effectiveness throughout Asia and The Far East.”
