Summing Up Acoustics 2019
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.
