This group provides a meeting place for engineers to exchange information and experience in these important areas. The group has recently expanded its scope of activities in recognition of an increased interest in the human perception dimension of most noise and vibration tasks, related to products people use. It will also touch on other human response matters. The aims of the group are to provide a forum to share experience and promote understanding and expertise in our areas, ranging across industry and academia. The group holds regular technical seminars and workshops.
