Riding on the success of the first, ever, anywhere Student Summit four years ago and three more successful follow-up events, the Webster University Student Section of the Audio Engineering Society will present the Fifth Annual Central Region AES Student Summit, March 18th – 20th, 2011, at Webster University in St. Louis, MO.
Last year’s Summit was a resounding success, with hundreds of students, educators and audio professionals from eleven states converging on Webster University.
Numerous guest speakers will be in attendance for the summit along with manufacturers as exhibitors and sponsors. Presentation ideas workshops and tutorials are welcome, and can be submitted to Andrea Pepper (see Call for Papers below). In past years these topics have included Internships and Entry Level Positions, the Analog Audio, Aesthetics, and Women in Audio, to name a few, and Webster plans to host a Mixing Competition, just as in past years only better, based on attendee suggestions!
The summit is, as in past years, being modeled upon AES conventions, except on a smaller scale. Unlike those wonderful, sometimes overwhelming conventions in New York or San Francisco, the Webster Students Section has arranged for inexpensive accommodations, and registration is practically free.
Whether or not you can make it to New York or London, this an extraordinary opportunity for students from the Central Region to mingle with their peers from other educational institutions as well as professionals. It will give you the same opportunity to put your hands on gear, just like on the exhibition floor at the Javits or the Moscone Center.
For students interested in the mixing competition the starting tracks are now available online and ready for download. Students, go ahead and download them and start mixing! Complete rules and entry information are available here.
The executive board of the Central Indiana Section hopes you will attend and will spread the word to everyone you know in the audio community: students, educators, pros, AES members and non-members alike.
