Business Meeting Event

The 26th International Congress on Sound and Vibrations to be held in Montreal 7-11 July 2018 is a unique opportunity to gather researchers, scientists, engineers, writers, policy makers in one central location over several days in the very versatile and functional venue. To maximise the efficient use of time of ICSV26 delegates, the ICSV26 organising committee offers to existing and recognised working groups to hold one such business meeting concurrently with the regular breakout scientific sessions.

Round table on environmental noise management (Public)

Date: TBC / Local: Outremont 3

This meeting comprises consultation and round table discussions on best practices for environmental noise management with an emphasis on municipal and provincial actions across all levels of the environmental noise codes. One major goal is to reconcile different conceptualizations of environmental noise – whether it is a public health concern, quality of life indicator, environmental pollutant, or planning resource. We will support a discussion toward identifying implications for improving and harmonizing regulatory frameworks in Quebec and beyond.

Presentations and discussions will be supported with materials in French and English. We welcome the participation of professionals, researchers and administrators of relevant areas.

This event is supported by the ministries of Environmental (MDDELCC) and Health (MSSS) of Quebec and is organized in collaboration with McGill University, École de Technologie Supérieure, Université Laval and the Montreal Public Health Agency.


Department of National Defence impulse noise community of practice (Public)

Date: TBC / Local: Outremont 3

Members of the impulse noise community of practice within the Department of National Defence (DND), Government of Canada, are working towards developing a national standard for measuring impulse noise from all DND weapon systems, and the insertion loss of different types of hearing protection devices. It is well known that military impulse noise is complex and noise-induced hearing loss is a global problem. The intent of this meeting is to provide situational awareness of where impulse noise and hearing protection research is being conducted and current efforts for standardization, with the goal of promoting information exchange and collaboration. We invite researchers, engineers and policy makers from other nations, particularly those working in military noise, to this meeting to discuss current activities in 1) weapon noise measurement and analysis, 2) hearing protection device insertion loss measurement, and 3) standardization of measurement and hearing damage risk criteria.
