The Acoustics of Ancient Theatres (July 6-8, 2022, Verona - Italy)

The Acoustical Society of Italy (AIA) and the European Acoustics Association (E.A.A.), with the collaboration of the Hellenic Institute of Acoustics (HEL.IN.A.), organize the Symposium “The Acoustics of Ancient Theatres” that will be held at Palazzo della Gran Guardia in the city of Verona, Italy, from 6 to 8 July 2022.

The Symposium on The Acoustics of Ancient Theatres, the second on this topic after the one held in Patras (Greece) in 2011, aims to bring together experts to present and discuss all aspects related to the acoustic properties of these monuments which are often still used for public performances including opera, drama, speech and music.

The evolution and development of new technologies for the multichannel measurement systems, together with acoustic simulations, auralisation methods and virtual reconstructions, have generated renewed interest in these spaces.

These aspects, as well as more interdisciplinary studies, will be presented and discussed. The event will be included among the initiatives of the International Year of Sound (IYS 2020) promoted by the International Commission for Acoustics (ICA).

Instructions for the proceedings will follow on the website. Every registered author can present up to two papers.

An award will be given to the best oral and poster presentations.

Authors are invited to submit a short abstract of 200 words and a short papers of 4 pages that will be published in the journal Rivista Italiana di Acustica. Selected papers will be proposed for a special issue in Acta Acustica.
