The European Acoustics Association (EAA) is pleased to announce the recipients of the prestigious EAA Best Student Paper Award. These awards were presented during the closing ceremony of Forum Acusticum 2023, a landmark acoustic conference that took place in Turin from September 11th to the 15th.
The EAA Best Student Paper Awards are designed to recognize and promote excellence among young acousticians, and they are proudly sponsored by the HEAD Genuit Foundation. The evaluation process for these awards involved a rigorous assessment of both the submitted papers and the presentations delivered during the conference. A distinguished jury nominated by the EAA carefully reviewed the submissions to select the winners.
The winners of the EAA Best Student Paper Award for 2023 are:
Kenneth Leung (University of Southampton, United Kingdom) – Optimisation of a multi-layered meta-partition for broadband low-frequency sound insulation.
Michail Vourakis (Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden) - Aeroacoustic Interaction Effects Between Parallel Low-Pressure Axial Flow Fans.
Nekane Sandoval Diez (Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute, University of Basel, Switzerland) - Association of road-traffic noise at night with sleep disturbances in adolescents.
Thiago Lobato (HEAD acoustics GmbH, Germany) - Identification of multipole sources with neural deconvolution.
Xenofon Karakonstantis (Technical University of Denmark, Denmark) - Room Impulse response reconstruction using physics-constrained neural networks.
Yael Lehnardt (Ben Gurion University, Israel) - Experimentally Broadcasted Wind-turbine Sound Drastically Alters Songbirds' Habitat Selection and Vocal Communication in a Natural Environment.
The EAA congratulates these talented young acousticians for their outstanding contributions to the field.
