The 159th meeting of the Acoustical Society of America will convene jointly with NOISE-CON 2010, the 26th annual conference of the Institute of Noise Control Engineering (INCE-USA), on April 19 to 23, at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel, Baltimore.
During the meeting, worldwide experts in acoustics will report on research that draws from scientific disciplines as diverse as medicine, music, psychology, engineering, speech communication, noise control, and marine biology.
The following list highlights some of the meeting’s talks:
- Voice Analysis: DETECTING EMOTIONAL STATE
- Acoustics and Sports: MEASURING CROWD NOISE
- Neuroscience: HEARING THROUGH NOISE
- Musical Acoustics: THE PHYSICS OF BANJOS
- Building Acoustics: GREEN BUILDINGS
- Acoustic Ecology: CENSUS BY SOUND
- Classroom Acoustics: IMPROVING THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
