Spanish Acoustical Society (SEA) Travel Grants for Young Acousticians

The goal of this program is to support young acousticians (YA)—undergraduate or postgraduate students, postdoctoral, or young noise control engineers working in industry, from Spain or Portugal, in attending the 49th International Congress on Noise Control Engineering, INTER-NOISE 2019, to be held in Madrid, June 16–19, 2019. SEA offers six YA travel grants of €500 each. The YA travel grant includes the payment of registration fees for the congress and the remainder amount (€500 less registration fees) will be available at the congress secretariat. See the SEA website for conditions of these travels grants.

I-INCE Practice of Noise Control School for Young Professionals

Sunday, June 16, 11:00–16:00 (times subject to change)
(by invitation only)

Four case studies will be presented on successful applications of noise control. Presenters are practitioners of noise control with long histories of working on noise problems. This is an opportunity to learn about practical application of theory and also to learn about the careers of the presenters. The presenters will have worked in different areas of noise control. For example, in 2018, the Practice of Noise Control School included presentations on environmental and community noise, appliance noise control, automotive noise control, and active noise control and the presenters had worked as consultants, in large companies, and small companies, and some had started their own businesses. Lunch is included in the workshop, and this will be an opportunity for attendees to have more interactions with practicing noise control engineers.

I-INCE Young Professional Workshop

Monday, afternoon, June 17

The goals of the Young Professional Workshop are to provide mentorship and advice to young professionals and to give them opportunities to talk to I-INCE leaders and practicing noise control engineers. Once the winners of the Young Professionals Grant have been determined, all the participants are invited to this workshop to gain valuable contacts and view presentations by noise control professionals. The invitation is also extended to most students who register for the congress.

The program will be posted when finalized. In the past it has included presentations on professional networking, preparing to start a new job in industry or academia, making technical presentations, and writing journal articles.
