Noise and Vibration: Emerging Methods

NOVEM 2021 is the 7th in the series of NOVEM conferences. The conference will be a major gathering of researchers, from research establishments and from industry, working in the areas of noise and vibration.

The emphasis of the conference is on new and emerging methods, techniques and technologies in acoustics and vibration.

Contributed Papers

Contributed papers are invited in areas relating to noise and vibration modeling, control, design and measurement.

Keynote Forums

As with previous NOVEMs, each day will contain a Keynote Forum, which will bring together key specialists within a common theme, followed by extensive discussion.  These themes represent major scientific challenges related to noise and vibration. 

Keynote Forums for NOVEM2021 concern:

  • Sound field control
  • Engineered materials for noise and vibration control
  • Big data and machine learning in noise and vibroacoustics

Previous Forum themes have included

  • Predictive Methodologies
  • Uncertainty and variability in vibrations and acoustics
  • Vibroacoustic modelling and virtual noise synthesis
  • Source characterisation and inverse approaches
  • Materials, structures and systems for noise and vibration control
  • Experimental Advances
  • Optical measurement of continuous vibration and sound fields
  • Nonlinear vibration and noise
  • Validating numerical vibroacoustics models – How much is enough?
  • Industrial Cases
