Inter-Noise 2023

Shinishi Sakamoto, Congress President

Dear Colleagues,

INTER-NOISE 2023, the 52nd International Congress and Exposition on Noise Control Engineering, is held in Chiba, Japan from 2023 August 20 through August 23. The Congress is sponsored by the International Institute of Noise Control Engineering (I-INCE) and co-organized by the Institute of Noise Control Engineering of Japan (INCE/J) and the Acoustical Society of Japan (ASJ). The organizers and the Organizing Committee of the Congress extend a warm welcome to all prospective participants worldwide and invite all to join us in Chiba to discuss and share the latest advances in noise and vibration control engineering and technology, focusing on our Congress Theme of “Quieter Society with Diversity & Inclusion.”

INTER-NOISE 2023 will feature a broad range of invited and contributed papers, together with plenary lectures by distinguished speakers. Technical papers related to the congress theme will be accepted with special acknowledgment. Research papers in all other fields of noise and vibration control are welcome too. There will be extensive exhibitions of noise and vibration control technology, measuring instruments, equipment, and systems from all over the world.

INTER-NOISE 2023 is held at the International Conference Hall of Makuhari Messe, which is very close to two international airports, Narita and Haneda. It takes only 30-40 minutes by express bus from each international airport to the Makuhari Messe. It will be helpful especially for foreign participants because of less physical loads after the long flights.

It is our pleasure to welcome you to INTER-NOISE 2023 and Chiba. We are sure you will enjoy all aspects of the Congress and Chiba. We look forward to meeting you soon in Chiba. Tokyo is just in 30 minutes range as well as the beautiful countryside is also within 30 minutes. The ocean, Tokyo Disney Resort, traditional Japan, and many great destinations are easy to reach from Makuhari. Please visit and

Sincerely yours,

Shinichi Sakamoto
Inter-Noise 2023 Congress President

See for details.

Technical Papers

Technical papers must be submitted as PDF files. The paper templates for both Microsoft Word and LaTeX formats are available at These templates are to ensure the uniformity of the publication. Please follow the instructions in the templates carefully.

Some authors have requested in the past Inter-Noise congress that their papers should be assessed in order to seek funding for congress registration and travel expenses. This paper will continue for Inter-Noise 2023 congress free of charge. The paper will be assessed (if requested when the abstract is submitted) to judge its suitability for presentation at the congress and inclusion in the Inter-Noise proceedings and database. Note that the full paper submission deadline is earlier and anonymous referees, as selected by the technical program co-chairs, may be asked to provide quick comments regarding the scope and substance of assessed papers as well as suggestions that will lead to improved manuscripts. The authors will then be asked to upload revised papers by the deadline provided by the technical program co-chairs.

Presentation Format

Inter-Noise 2023 will be held as a live/in-person congress. The presentation format will be oral or poster style at the venue. In order to accept the diverse needs of participants, Inter-Noise 2023 will accept the alternative presentation format using a pre-recorded video presentation. Details of each format are described below. Regardless of the presentation format, all submitted manuscripts except no-show papers will be published in the proceedings and the INCE-USA digital library (
