Main Topic Spotlights

Building Noise Control and Architectural Acoustics

The sessions under the main topic of ‘Building Noise Control and Architectural Acoustics’ at INTER-NOISE 2022 will give practitioners and researchers a great opportunity to get an International perspective on the latest developments in sound insulation, room acoustics, and general aspects of building acoustics. It also provides ample opportunities for networking with other consultants and researchers.

Led by Professor Carl Hopkins

Community Noise and Planning

Effective planning is vital for the successful management of our soundscape and to minimize impacts on affected communities.  The “Community Noise and Planning” topic will include papers on building for quality of life including the use of the WHO Guidelines, the soundscape resulting from the pandemic, and tranquillity.  I will be attending INTER-NOISE 2022 to find out about the wide-ranging work that practitioners, researchers, and policy developers are contributing to, both from the UK and our international counterparts from further afield.  It is a unique opportunity to see how similar problems are addressed by those from other countries, right on our doorstep.  I hope to see many of you there.

Led by Mrs. Hilary Notley

Computer Simulation and Modeling

During the past few years research in Computer Simulation and Modeling has moved forward with wave-based prediction now possible using Graphics Processing Units. Wave-based predictions allow more realistic auralisations and focusing effects to be accurately modeled. I am looking forward to INTER-NOISE, the first major international conference since the ICA in September 2019, so 3 years! It will be great to see old friends, make new friends, and network with fellow professionals. I can’t wait!

– Led by Professor Stephen Dance

Soundscape & Acoustic Quality

The Main Topic on ‘Soundscapes and Acoustic Quality explores the scientific fundamentals and practical solutions to environmental sounds, as perceived, in context. Both outdoor and indoor soundscaping is considered. Sessions include Indoor soundscape, restorative soundscape measurement, analysis and design, industrial and rural soundscapes, soundscape and health, and AI in the soundscape.

– Led by Professor Jian Kang

Underwater, Ship & Offshore Acoustics

The INTER-NOISE 2022 Congress is covering quite a diverse set of topics in noise control, not only there will be presentations that deal with some of the more traditional topics, building acoustics, soundscapes, etc., but also to be covered are topics that relate to sound underwater and the control of sound as it is generated and propagated in the underwater environment.  Underwater noise control is a very challenging topic and the papers to be presented at the INTER-NOISE 2022 Congress are not to be missed.  This is a great opportunity to hear presentations about such a challenging topic.

Led by Dr. Joe Cuschieri

This congress theme, ‘Noise control in a more sustainable future, is particularly timely and the congress venue is the same as that for the recent conference on climate change, COP 26. The sustainability of events is more important than ever and INTER-NOISE 2022 has a responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint. INTER-NOISE 2022 will be held at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) which is prioritising better outcomes for its clients, the community, and the environment through a sustainability strategy and its SEC Net Zero 2030 ambition. Working with staff, organizers of the INTER-NOISE 2022 Sustainability Working Group, partners, and visitors all form part of the overall engagement plan to support the net-zero journey.
