Welcome to the 8th Congress of the Alps Adria Acoustics Association!
The 8th Congress of the Alps Adria Acoustics Association will be held for the first time in Zagreb, at the University of Zagreb, Croatia, from 20th to 21st September 2018.
The Alps Adria Acoustics Association (AAAA) was founded by the acoustics societies of Austria, Croatia and Slovenia in 2002 as a new regional association. The original goal was to promote all aspects of research in the field of acoustics in the whole of the region, and beyond. In addition, the Association’s aim was to improve the overall cooperation among the countries and their respective national societies as well.
Every two years, one of the three founding societies of the AAAA organizes a scientific congress on acoustics. The main goal of these congresses is to bring together acousticians from Croatia, Austria and Slovenia, as well as from the other European countries, in order to exchange knowledge, share research outcomes and strengthen mutual cooperation among these societies for the benefit of the whole region.
During the congress days, national and international experts present a number of scientific and applied papers on their research and professional activities in all fields of acoustics. In particular, the congress topics cover architectural and building acoustics, auditory and speech acoustic, environmental and transportation noise, machinery noise and vibration control, computational acoustics, electroacoustics, legislation in acoustics, musical acoustics, measurement techniques, non-linear acoustics, psychoacoustics and perception of sound, signal processing, sound generation and radiation, ultrasonics, hydroacoustics, etc.
The scientific programme includes keynote talks given by eminent international experts. The AAAA 2018 Congress deals with topics that are the focus of interest in the scientific community and among researchers working in the industry. Moreover, a Roundtable discussion on noise legislation, its implementation in national laws and discovered challenges for experts and companies is planned as well.
Full papers based on abstracts that have been reviewed and accepted by two independent reviewers will be published in the Congress Proceedings which will be distributed to all Congress participants.
The 2018 Congress is organized by the Acoustics Society of Croatia (HAD) acting on behalf of the Alps Adria Acoustics Association and is also certified as an EAA symposium.
Looking forward to meeting you in Zagreb in September 2018!
