Chileans visit the Acoustics Lab

On the 1st August 2017 the largest ever delegation of Chilean acoustic engineers visited London South Bank University. The delegation had recently attended ICSV 24 and wanted to learn more about the work of the Acoustics Group. A most pleasant afternoon was spend discussing possible collaborative opportunities.

Visitors to the Acoustics Lab

After the ICSV conference had finished the Acoustics Group invited an Indonesian delegation to visit the laboratory. On the 29th July 2017 Indraswari Kusumaningtyas and Gea Parikesit from Universitas Gadjah Mada were show around our facilities by Stephen Dance. Ari was particularly interested in our educational courses and the research in musical acoustics. One day we come and visit their laboratory!
