Noise Control Engineering Journal Special Focus Area

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a growing area of noise control engineering. It is frequently used to understand the subjective reaction to noise and perception of sonic environments. AI is also used to understand complex acoustic systems and to develop effective noise controls in such systems. The Noise Control Engineering Journal (NCEJ) plans to place special focus on this topic area in upcoming issues.

Yang-Hann Kim ( will be coordinating this effort. Yang-Hann will be inviting selected authors to prepare papers focused on this area of noise control and will be coordinating the review of all papers submitted in this special focus area.

A key part of this initiative will be a few outstanding invited papers to be featured in upcoming issues. Yang-Hann will be contacting authors about preparing these invited papers shortly. These papers will receive special designation in NCEJ as featured treatments of this focus topic.

If you would like to contribute a paper related to AI in noise control you may contact Yang-Hann Kim or simply submit your paper through the regular website When you submit, please include “Artificial Intelligence” or “AI” in the title. Yang-Hann would be eager to discuss possible paper topics with you.

As he will be coordinating the reviews of these papers, please feel free to contact Dr. Kim if you would like to volunteer as a reviewer for AI related papers.
