Prof. Cheng elected as Director of IIAV

In the last round of election by its members, Prof. L. Cheng was elected as a Director of the International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration (IIAV) for a four-year term starting from 2017. IIAV is a prestigious international scientific society dedicated to advance the science of acoustics and vibration, in response to the needs of scientists and engineers in all countries whose primary interests are in the fields of acoustics and vibration. Among other activities such as journal publications, the IIAV organizes an annual premier world event, the International Congress on Sound and Vibration (ICSV).

The Acoustic group of PolyU has long been actively engaged in IIAV’s activities, since the successful organization of ICSV8 on PolyU campus in 2001. In the last edition of ICSV23, held in Athens, Greece in 2016, Prof. Cheng was also invited to give one of the five Distinguished Plenary Lectures.
