Full of hope, confidence and sense of mission, we founded the International Symposium on ElectroAcoustic Technologies (ISEAT) in April 2007. For fifteen years, on the key mission of High-level International Exchange Platform for ElectroAcoustic Technology, we are doing our best.
To greet the 15th Anniversary of ISEAT, we will hold the 8th ISEAT scheduled at Fall 2022, make the new ISEAT to meet this year full of changes. The ISEAT Committee, together with the Expert & Advisory Committee are engaged with inviting the new and familiar guests all over the world, preparing a serious of brilliant speeches, forums and lectures in the field of Audio Technology.
With a combination of online and offline method, ISEAT will effectively enhance the communication and exchange of the industry, stimulate new ideas in the convergence of academic and industry between China and the rest of the world.
The coming new ISEAT should be worth waiting for, let's meet this Fall.

Dr. Wolfgang Klippel
Silver medal recipient of AES
Professor of University of Technology in Dresden
Wolfgang Klippel studied electrical engineering at the University of Technology in Dresden / Germany, where his initial studies focused on speech recognition. Afterward, he joined a loudspeaker company where he was engaged in transducer modeling, acoustic measurement, and psychoacoustics. He later returned to his studies and received a Ph.D. in Technical Acoustics in 1987.
After spending a post-doctoral year at the Audio Research Group at the Department of Physics/the University of Waterloo (Canada) and working at Harman/JBL in Northridge, California/USA, he returned to Dresden in 1995 and founded Klippel GmbH, a company that develops novel control and measurement systems dedicated to loudspeakers and other transducers.
Dr. Klippel has also been engaged as a Professor of Electro-acoustics at the University of Technology in Dresden since 2007 and as a regular guest Professor at Le Mans Université in France and Feng Chia University in Taiwan. His papers and tutorials on loudspeaker modeling and measurement – particularly those on large-signal behavior and physical distortion mechanisms – are considered reference works in the field.
