Welcome to ICBEN 2021

Dear ICBEN friends and colleagues,


2020 has been an extraordinary and challenging year for people all over the world, which is why we had to postpone the ICBEN congress by one year.

On behalf of the International Commission on Biological Effects of Noise (ICBEN), we would like to announce that the 13th ICBEN Congress on Noise as a Public Health Problem will be held 14-17 June 2021! Please save the date for this event.

After weighing all options and careful consideration, we are happy to announce that for the first time in our congress history, the event “ICBEN2021” will be held digitally.

Submission of abstracts for 2021 is now open! If you already have submitted an abstract, you will in January receive further information how to revise or withdraw an abstract. You will have the possibility to revise or withdraw any already submitted paper anytime before the new deadline 1 February 2021.  Please also note, that the full paper submission deadline has been extended until the middle of April. If you withdraw your abstract after you have submitted a full paper, the paper will be withdrawn automatically.

If you have already registered for the congress the last year, your registration will remain valid for ICBEN2021. Congress fees will, however, be reduced. Detailed information will follow early in 2021. Feel free to ask questions regarding registration at ICBEN2021@akademikonferens.se

Meanwhile, stay safe and save the dates:
7 February 2021 1 February 2021: Deadline Abstract and Congress Grant request submissions
