ICBEN 2021

rescheduled from 15 -18 June 2020

The 13th ICBEN Congress on Noise as a Public Health Problem will be held at the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden.

Today, after weighing all options and careful consideration, we are happy to announce that for the first time in our congress history the event “ICBEN2021” will be held digitally!

The ICBEN 2021 organizational committee is working hard to arrange the congress in a new remote format and keep it as engaging as our usual congresses. Those who have submitted an abstract earlier will be able to withdraw, revise or leave as is any time before the new deadline 1 February 2021. Congress fees will be reduced. Detailed information will follow early in 2021.

Meanwhile stay safe and save the dates:
