The primary focus of the Institute is on unwanted sounds and on vibrations producing such sounds when transduced. I-INCE is the organizer of the INTER-NOISE Series of International Congresses on Noise Control Engineering held annually in leading cities of the world. The theme of INTER-NOISE 2017  is Taming Noise and Moving Quiet with which the organizing committe expects to attract more than 1000 attendees from all over the world. The Congress will provide the best opportunity for engineers and scientists in all fields of acoustics to learn about and share their work with colleagues.
