IWAVE2012 - International Workshop in Sound and Vibration Research


An invitation to attend the International Workshop on "Acoustics and Vibration in Egypt - IWAVE 2012" in parallel with the Ninth Swedish-Egyptian Workshop in Sound and Vibration Research which is held on 13-14 October 2012 and is organized by the Acoustical Society of Egypt. The workshop is intended to promote Sound and Vibration research and education in Egypt through encouraging cooperation among Egyptian scientists, and with scientists around the globe. The workshop is co-sponsored by the European Commission through the TEMPUS and FP7 programmes as well as the Science & Technology Development Fund (STDF) in Egypt. This year, there will be a special session for junior researchers (M.Sc. and Ph.D. students) conducting research in sound and vibration. As a continuous tradition, there will be awards for the best presentations of the young researchers.
IWAVE 2012 is sponsored by:
- TEMPUS programme
- Egyptian Science & Technology Development Fund (STDF)
- Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsradet).
- FP7, X-Noise Network of Excellence.

Prof. Ray Kirby from Brunel University in the United kingdom, and Prof. Anders Nilsson from the Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden will offer two keynote lectures titled
