International Year of Sound 2020-2021

Event Calendar

The Year of Sound will be celebrated with events originating at the regional, the national, and the international levels. Here we list all events that have an acoustical outreach component in line with the goals of the Year of Sound.


1 - 4 August 2021United States


The 50th International Congress and Exposition on Noise Control Engineering will be held in Washington, DC, USA on 1-4 August 2021. We are hoping for a live, face to face event but we are prepared to hold the congress in virtual or hybrid mode depending on the COVID-19 conditions and travel restrictions. The Congress is organized by the Institute of Noise Control Engineering of the USA (INCE-USA) and Pro Acustica (Brazil), on behalf of the International Institute of Noise Control Engineering (I-INCE). The Congress theme is “Next 50 Years of Noise Control” and the program will cover all aspects of noise control engineering, acoustics and vibration. Special sessions or events will be held on the 50th inter-noise congress anniversary and on other relevant topics.
