Dear ICBEN friends and colleagues,
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!
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.
The call for contributions to the congress was very successful and more than 220 abstracts from 40 countries were submitted! During digital Congress, we will see four keynote lectures, 11 sessions, 172 oral presentations, 56 posters, and two special sessions, covering the newest research in all aspects of auditory and non-auditory effects of noise and noise as a public health issue.
