Automotive Acoustics Conference 2017

The 4th Automotive Acoustics Conference will take place on July 11 & 12, 2017 at the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute (GDI) in Zurich / Ruschlikon, Switzerland.

This globally leading conference under the patronage of Professor Paolo Ermanni (ETH) will address current and relevant topics in automotive acoustics, such as body and powertrain NVH (noise, vibration, harshness), sound package engineering, measurement and simulation technologies as well as the impact of exterior noise and CO2 legislation.

Scheduled are more than 20 presentations by leading experts from car manufacturers, automotive suppliers and research institutes.

The conference will feature the following keynote speeches:

An overview of the challenges of making ever-quieter environmental vehicles
Masashi Komada, Project General Manager, Toyota Motor Corporation, Japan

New fuel-saving technologies and NVH refinement for powertrains
Dr. Léon Gavric, Vice President, Senior Expert NVH, PSA Peugeot Citroën Automobiles, France

NEW: Two workshops included in the program aiming at the latest trends in the automotive industry

  • NVH development of EVs/HEVs
  • Trends and Opportunities in High Performance Composites for Automotive Applications

At the same time, a comprehensive exhibition will give insights into the latest products and technologies in the field of acoustic and thermal management.

Based on over 40 years of experience, The Automotive Acoustics Conference is one of the prime international conventions for vehicle acoustics. The scientific lead is within Autoneum and the two-day event is co-ordinated with ATZ live, a company organizing conferences for the automotive industry.

Experts from car manufacturers, automotive suppliers and research institutes from all over the world catch up on the bi-annual conference. Discussion points circle around the latest developments regarding the reduction of interior and exterior noise of cars, the impacts coming from new regulations in the field of automotive acoustics or the interaction between acoustic, thermal and aerodynamic features of vehicle components.

Autoneum. Mastering sound and heat.
