About 150 acousticians from the Nordic and Baltic countries met in Reykjavík, Iceland, this April for the biennial Baltic-Nordic Acoustics Meeting (BNAM). Our Hearing Systems and Acoustic Technology groups contributed to the event with several scientific presentations.

Cheol-Ho Jeong, Finnur Pind, and Sébastien Santurette co-chaired sessions on “Hospital acoustics”, “Computational acoustics”, and “Musical acoustics, hearing, and acoustic communication”, respectively. DTU was also represented at a round table on “Dealing with the increasing demand for acoustics graduates in industry and academia” organized by the Young Acousticians Network.

From Hearing Systems, the results of Bertrand Smits’ MSc project on the effects of concert noise on supra-threshold hearing, building up on the work of PhD student Pernille Holtegaard, were presented. Sébastien Santurette also presented a review of the group’s recent findings on the effects of musical experience and hearing loss on pitch perception.

From Acoustic Technology, Cheol-Ho Jeong and Ida Ørduk presented the noise and room acoustic conditions in a Korean tertiary hospital and several Danish hospitals. PhD student Finnur Pind also presented his work on acoustic virtual reality.

The next BNAM meeting will take place in Norway in two years’ time, and it will be Denmark’s turn to be the host country in 2022.

BNAM is the biennial Baltic-Nordic Acoustics Meeting (BNAM),
organised by one of the national member societies of the
Nordic Acoustics Association (NAA) on behalf of the NAA.
In 2018, the conference took place in Reykjavík, Iceland
from April 15 to April 18 at Harpa conference center in Reykjavík.
