An Invitation to INTER-NOISE 2017

The Hong Kong Institute of Acoustics and the Hong Kong Polytechnic University warmly invite you to attend the 46th International Congress and Exposition on Noise Control Engineering (INTER-NOISE 2017). The Congress is organized in conjunction with the Acoustical Society of China and the NVH Committee of the Society of Automotive Engineering, China. It will be held in Hong Kong from August 27 to 30, 2017, at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC).

INTER-NOISE 2017 will provide the best opportunity for engineers and scientists in all fields of acoustics to learn about and share their work with colleagues from around the world. Five keynote speeches and more than a hundred technical sessions will be arranged for exchanging views and sharing experiences.

Congress Theme—Taming Noise and Moving Quiet

More and more people are living in cities nowadays. As the population density increases, the noise issue has become increasingly important in affecting the living quality of citizens. Noise in urbanized cities mostly comes from human beings, transportation, construction, buildings, and city services, which are all essential for the progress of city development. Taming these noises is therefore a very challenging task for governments, professionals, and academia. Efforts to keep moving vehicles quiet during operation is of prime importance to the benefit of citizens.
