Welcome to the 9th Congress of the Alps Adria Acoustics Association!

The 9th Congress of the Alps Adria Acoustics Association will be held for the first time in Hungary, at the conference center of Herman Ottó Nonprofit Institute in Budapest, Hungary, from 23th to 24th September 2021.

The Alps Adria Acoustics Association (AAAA) was founded by the acoustics societies of Austria, Croatia and Slovenia in 2002 as a new regional association. In 2019 the Hungarian Scientific Society for Optics, Acoustics, Motion Picture and Theatre Technology (OPAKFI) joined instead of Austria. The original goal of AAAA was to promote all aspects of research in the field of acoustics in the whole the region. 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 memeber societies of the AAAA organizes a scientific congress on acoustics. The main goal of these congresses is to bring together acousticians from Croatia, Hungary 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. The last event took place in Zagreb in 2018. The next one was planned for September of 2020, but due to the pandemic it had to be postponed.

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 lectures given by eminent international experts. The AAAA 2021 Congress deals with topics that are the focus of interest in the scientific community and among researchers working in the industry.

The 2021 Congress is organized by the Scientific Society for Optics, Acoustics, Motion Pictures and Theatre Technology (OPAKFI) acting on behalf of the Alps Adria Acoustics Association.

The conference is planned to be a live conference, but as the world changes day bay day due to the pandemic we can not be sure if the conference can be held that way or we have to swith to online. We will make the decision latest in the middle of August and give nformation on the website.

Looking forward to meeting you in Budapest in September 2021!
