The Alps Adria Acoustics Association (AAAA) was founded by the acoustics societies of Austria, Croatia and Slovenia in 2002 as a new regional association. In 2019 the Hungarian Scientific Society for Optics, Acoustics, Motion Picture and Theatre Technology (OPAKFI) joined instead of Austria. The original goal of AAAA was to promote international development and collaboration in all fields of acoustics including research, development, education, and standardization in Central-South-Eastern Europe. In addition, the Association’s aim was to improve the overall cooperation among the countries and their respective national societies as well.
Every two years, one of the three member societies of the AAAA organizes a scientific congress on acoustics. The last event took place in Budapest in 2021.
During the congress days, national and international experts present a number of scientific and applied papers on their research and professional activities in all fields of acoustics. In particular, the congress topics cover architectural and building acoustics, auditory and speech acoustic, environmental and transportation noise, machinery noise and vibration control, computational acoustics, electroacoustics, legislation in acoustics, musical acoustics, measurement techniques, non-linear acoustics, psychoacoustics and perception of sound, signal processing, sound generation and radiation, ultrasonics, hydroacoustics, etc.
The scientific programme includes keynote lectures given by eminent international experts. The AAAA 2023 Congress deals with topics that are the focus of interest in the scientific community and among researchers working in the industry.
The 2023 Congress is organized by the Slovenian Acoustical Society (SDA) acting on behalf of the Alps Adria Acoustics Association. The conference is planned to be a live conference.
