Due to the latest developments in the COVID-19 pandemic and increasing travel restrictions across the world, the organizing committee and I-INCE have decided to convert INTER-NOISE 2020 to an e-congress during the planned period, August 23–26, 2020. The new format will allow congress registrants to see recorded presentations of papers on demand and participate in discussions with authors and other colleagues.
If you have already submitted an abstract, you can go ahead and complete the paper, register for the congress, and record the presentation of your paper. If you have not yet submitted an abstract, you can still take advantage of the the extended deadlines to participate—and even if you don’t intend to present a paper but have an interest in the latest noise control engineering, you can still register for the congress at the new lower registration rate and experience the new exciting format.
Those of you who have been to an INTER-NOISE Congress in the past know that it is always jam-packed with the latest in noise control, and you’ve likely been faced with several tough decisions in trying to decide which papers to attend (and miss!). One massive advantage of this e-congress is that you will be able to view (and re-view) the presentation of any paper during the time the conference portal is open! In the official announcement, I-INCE President Robert Bernhard writes, “This format is an exciting experiment and one that makes great sense in 2020.”
In its 50-year history, this will be the first time INTER-NOISE will be held as an e-congress. The new format of the e-congress will offer an exciting new experience for participants, sponsors, and exhibitors, including easy access to video content, reduced registration fee, and an e-exposition. There will also be new online social programs where attendees can meet INTER-NOISE colleagues even in different time zones!
