Mr. Ritter’s paper, “Modeling Viscoelasticity of Loudspeaker Suspensions using

He graduated as B.Eng. from Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg in 2008 with a major in engineering physics and as M.Sc. (Eng) from Technical University of Denmark with a major in acoustics. His research interests include electroacoustic transducers, numerical methods in acoustics, psychoacoustics and general audio engineering. In addition to his academic studies Mr. Ritter has served as a freelance live concert sound engineer. His paper will appear in lecture session P11, on Friday Nov. 5, 2:30PM to 6:30PM.

Mr. Nanjundaswamy’s paper, “Perceptual Distortion-Rate Optimization of Long Term Prediction in MPEG AAC” was co-authored by Vinay Melkote, Emmanuel Ravelli, and Kenneth Rose. He graduated with a B.E. degree from the National Institute of Technology, Karnataka, India with a major in Electronics and Communications in 2004.

“The Awards Committee maintains extremely high standards for Student Technical Papers,” Ron Maher reports. “It should be noted that there have been occasions in past years when no Student Paper Award was presented. That two papers were selected this year is extraordinary, and, indicative of the level of excellence which they represent.”

Co Chair Veronique Larcher adds that, “Both papers are now eligible for publication consideration in the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society. The AES extends this year’s winners our sincere congratulations for their superlative work.”
