Automotive Acoustics Conference 2023

The international Automotive Acoustics Conference is a biennial global forum for the exchange of information and networking among engineers engaged in further improving the NVH characteristics of passenger cars and commercial vehicles. The principal themes of the conference explore the technological innovations as well as the market and regulatory demands that are driving the state of the art in the automotive industry. Furthermore, the conference caters to the needs of researchers and developers alike by addressing growing expectations with regard to vehicle performance and sustainability. It also touches upon the particular challenge that developments in one area of the car often also affect its acoustic characteristics – especially as perceived by the end user.

High standards of noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) performance are of major significance to the value of an automobile. They reflect the quality and refinement of a vehicle in an audible and tangible way, especially for electrified vehicles where the absence of the engine combustion noise is changing the paradigm of the sources contributing to interior and exterior NVH.

The 7th Automotive Acoustics Conference will cover its customary broad spectrum of themes, giving participants a comprehensive, biennial snapshot of the state of the art in acoustics and NVH from a global perspective. This year’s conference program features 22 presentations from leading industry executives, including keynote lectures by BYD, Stellantis and FEV.

The 2023 edition of this leading global conference in the field of automotive acoustics will again take place at the renowned Swiss think tank Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute, located in Zurich/Rueschlikon. The conference will be run in hybrid mode, allowing participants to participate either on site or remotely through an online platform.
