INTER-NOISE 2017, the 46th International Congress and Exposition on Noise Control Engineering, will be held in Hong Kong, China, between 27 and 30 August 2017. The Congress is organised by the Hong Kong Institute of Acoustics and the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, in conjunction with NVH Branch, Society of Automotive Engineering China.
The theme of the Congress is 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. Effort to keep the moving vehicles quiet during operation is of prime importance to the benefit of citizens.
