Less noise, better sound - Annual German Conference on Acoustics

March 15, 2022

The annual conference of the German Acoustical Society will be presenting the latest research findings to 1,200 participants in Stuttgart.

Sound - disturbing if it is street or aircraft noise, but a pleasure if it is music. Numerous facets of this topic will be addressed at the 48th Annual Conference of the German Acoustics Society from March 21 to 24, 2022 at the University of Stuttgart. Approximately 1,200 participants from 27 countries are expected to attend the "DAGA" (Deutsche Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Akustik) hybrid event, both onsite in Stuttgart and online. The conference is one of the world's largest interdisciplinary events in the acoustics sector. The University of Stuttgart and the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics will be hosting the event.

In over 500 talks and presentations, experts will be providing information about their latest work and findings in research, teaching and practical projects. One focus is the topic of noise in cities: inner cities should be lively, but not loud. But how is this possible despite noise from cars, motorbikes or trains? Electromobility will play an increasingly important role in this in the future.

The DAGA also focuses on noise control in buildings. This includes dealing with noise in daycare centers, schools, hospitals or open-plan offices as well as acoustics in timber construction. In recent years, people have become the focus of acoustic research. Psychologists and engineers work together on establishing the effects of sound and noise on people and on innovative solutions for quiet and good sound. Their research focuses, for example, on the sound design of devices or so-called soundscapes in urban environments.

We cordially invite media representatives to attend a hybrid press conference. Following this, we are also able to offer guided tours through the exhibition that accompanies the conference, as well as of the acoustic laboratories, which are really worth seeing and hearing. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
