Internoise 2014 – 43rd International Congress on Noise Control Engineering
Proceedings of 43rd International Congress on Noise Control Engineering November 16-19, 2014 Melbourne Australia
About The Author
Australian Acoustical Society
The Australian Acoustical Society aims to promote and advance the science and practice of acoustics in all its branches to the wider community and provide support to acousticians.
Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge
The Society was formed in 1964 when meetings were held of people interested in acoustics and vibration. The Society was incorporated on 1 April 1971 as a public company. Divisions are active in all Australian States.
Its members practice or study acoustics across a wide range of fields including:
Architectural Acoustics - Environmental Noise - Marine Acoustics - Engineering Noise Control - Occupational Noise Management - Physiology of Hearing - Audiology Studies - Musical Acoustics
The International Institute of Noise Control Engineering (I-INCE) was founded in 1974. It is a worldwide consortium of organizations concerned with noise control, acoustics and vibration. The primary focus of the Institute is on unwanted sounds and on vibrations producing such sounds when transduced. I-INCE is the sponsor of the INTER-NOISE Series of International Congresses on Noise Control Engineering held annually in leading cities of the world. I-INCE also co-sponsors symposia on specialized topics within the I-INCE field of interest. The quarterly magazine Noise/News International is jointly published by I-INCE and the Institute of Noise Control Engineering of the USA (INCE/USA). I-INCE instituted a program to undertake technical initiatives on critically-important issues of international concern within the I-INCE field of interest. This initiative has resulted in several reports and a number of active Technical Study Groups.
I-INCE actively promotes participation by young noise control professionals. I-INCE has allocated funds to support between ten and twelve Young Scientists Conference Attendance Grants (YS Grants) to assist young scientists/engineers in attending the I-INCE sponsored International Congresses on Noise Control Engineering. The notification of this prestigious YS Grant may be used to obtain additional funding from other sources. In order to meet the expanding needs of the field of noise control engineering, I-INCE has now also established a Symposium Series. Finally, I-INCE is assuming leadership role in formulating global noise policies; this includes an ongoing collaboration with CAETS (International Council of Academies of Engineering and Technological Sciences).
