In the aftermath of INTER-NOISE 2016, that happened from August 21-24 in Hamburg, we would like to let you know more on SONORUS ESRs’ participation.
The congress theme was “Towards a quieter future” and more than 900 contributions and 15 sessions from various topics, including one of the largest – Urban Sound Planning – scientists, researchers and practitioners met and shared their outcomes and views on various subjects.
SONORUS ESRs’ participation at Inter-Noise 2016 was a great success. All ESRs had great feedback to their presentations and the Urban Sound Planning- SONORUS poster session was visited by many people. Below you can find more details about each of these sessions.

Our ESR’s team presented 10 papers that include some of the latest outcomes of our research:
- A preliminary investigation about the influence of soundscapes on people’s behaviour in an open public space (Aletta, Francesco et al.)
- Urban sound planning – the SONORUS project (Alves, Sonia et al.)
- The relative importance of visual and sound design in the rehabilitation of a bridge connecting a highly populated area and a park (Echevarria Sanchez, Gemma Maria et al.)
- Isolating key features in urban traffic dynamics and noise emission: a study on a signalized intersection and a roundabout (Estévez Mauriz, Laura et al.)
- A low-height acoustic screen in a setting with an urban road: measured and predicted insertion loss (Forssén, Jens et al)
- Mapping the Integrated Impact of Noise and Visual Intrusion of Motorways (Like, Jian et al.)
- The influence of vegetation and shape-related features in making parks more noise resistant (Margaritis, Efstathios et al.)
- The soundscape and the degree of match of a waterfront with the expectations placed on it. The cases study of Naples and Brighton (Puyana Romero, Virginia et al.)
- Effects of Sound Source Visibility on Sound Perception in Living Room Environment (Sun, Kang et al.)
- Background traffic noise synthesis (Zachos, Georgios et al.)

The Urban Sound Planning poster session was the largest poster session of the conference and included 12 posters from SONORUS team. You can check the titles of each poster in a previous post. As you can see from the photos below this session was attended by many people and we received very good feedback to our work.

As you must know, SONORUS project is getting to an end, but the best part is yet to come: the SONORUS International Symposium!
Hope to see you there!
