This event, organised by the Measurement and Instrumentation Group, will review the current state of acoustic instrumentation and measurement within ‘Smart Cities’. The event will look at recent developments in instrumentation for distributed and long term noise monitoring, the development of appropriate analytics for handling large datasets and example case studies including those where acoustic data is combined with other measurands.

UKAN can provide travel grants to their members who wish to attend this event.
