We thank you all for your support over 2019. To summarise our busiest year ever: Links with the Institute of Acoustics strengthened further with LSBU hosting 3 key evening meetings delivered by leading professors, as well as IOA and MSc students presenting their work to London branch in January and July. Three papers were published on metadiffusers, stethoscopes and bone vibration, as well as 20 conference papers from staff, PhD candidates, IOA and MSc students. The conferences were held in Milton Keynes, Madrid, Aachen, Ischia, and Bristol. Prizes were won by PhD candidate Rodrigo Sanchez-Perez for applying lecturing technology, Grame Littleford won the Newman Medal for his Masters thesis, and Visiting Professor Peter Mapp was awarded the IOA Engineering Medal. In addition the whole team won the BuroHappo prize. Both the IOA and CIBSE re-accredited the courses where acoustic is taught. Sponsorship and support was extended by both the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal Opera House. We welcomed back Suzana Zekic from Imtech as a PhD candidate and we sadly said goodbye to Dr Bob Peters. Next year will be momentous as we start our new Apprenticeship in Acoustics course and welcome PhD candidate Luciana Alves who is over from Brazil. Happy New Year to you all.

Chris Anderson Principal consultant of Spectrum Acoustics , delivered on 5th Dec 2019 an informative seminar to the 2019-20 LSBU Diploma students. The session discussed in detail noise control and acoustic design in off shore platforms. Chris shared some useful consultancy and commercially laden insights which complemented very well the technical and practical aspect of the talk. The was facilitated by Diploma course director Dr Luis Gomez-Agustina after a conversation on future collaborations with Spectrum Acoustics when they visited LSBU careers fair in Nov 2019.

UK Acoustics Network. A talk was given on immersive audio using the IKO speaker. Demonstrations of specially composed pieces were presented to illustrate the new capabilities of the speaker system.
On 02 Dec 2019 the first meeting of a new working group to assist developing test methods to determine acoustic properties of ventilation ducts took place at the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) head quarters in London. The working group has been created by Dr Luis Gomez-Agustina, LSBU PhD candidate and Imtech engineer Suzana Zekic and head of research at CIBSE Dr Anastasia Mylona.
The group is formed by ten industry experts in building services noise and mechanical ventilation senior engineers. Our thanks to the members and Anastasia for facilitating the meeting , the great venue and the delicious lunch !
