Early Career Connecting SIGs events 2023-2024

22 September - 30 April 2024


The Early Career Executive Board will be running a second series of Connecting SIGs events. These will bring together the SIGs overseen by each Early Career Acoustic Champion, as shown below.

  • AI Champion, Arshdeep Singh: Acoustic Sensors, Computational Acoustics, Mathematical Analysis in Acoustics and Bio-acoustics SIGs
  • Sustainability Champion, Merate Barakat: Acoustic or Ultrasonic NDE, Acoustic Metamaterials, and Underwater Acoustics
  • Manufacturing and Transport Champion, Xudong Niu: Aero-acoustics, Vibro-acoustics, Noise and Soundscape and Physical Acoustics SIGs
  • Wellbeing Champion, Simone Graetzer: Communication and Room Acoustics, Hearing and Spatial Acoustics and Immersive Audio SIGs

Each Connecting SIGs event will comprise a number of talks about the various research areas covered by the SIGs, and discussions about the current state and future of the research theme. In addition, they may include some short talks (“pitches”) by individual members about their current research. The idea is to bring together the members of the SIGs to discuss possible collaborations and applications for UKAN+ funding. All UKAN+ members from all stages of their career are welcome.
