RS 2018: Putting Sound in its Place

The Electro-Acoustics Group Committee of the Institute of Acoustics is pleased to announce Reproduced Sound 2018, Putting Sound in its Place. The conference will be held at the Bristol Hotel on 27-29 November, 2018. The conference dinner will take place on Brunel’s S.S. Great Britain.

Now in its 34th year, the conference represents the cutting edge of modern audio and acoustics in an informal environment that allows consultants, manufacturers, contractors, end users, academics and students to mingle and share insights and information.

The call for papers is now open with a deadline of Friday, 18 May 2018. Click here for full details.

Further information can be found on the IOA’s event page.


John Vanderkooy

Professor John Vanderkooy is this year’s recipient of the Peter Barnett Memorial Award, for his lifelong contributions to acoustics education and research. Prof. Vanderkooy spent his career at the University of Waterloo in Canada, where he founded the Audio Research Group, along with colleague Stanley Lipshitz. He served as editor for the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society and has presented numerous papers over the years on a very wide range of topics in the fields of acoustics and audio engineering. To this day, he makes regular summer visits to Bowers and Wilkins here in the UK and has in the past spent sabbatical periods at the University of Essex, working with Prof. Malcolm Hawksford.


Filippo Fazi

Filippo Fazi is this year’s recipient of the IOA’s Tyndall Medal, which is awarded biannually to a UK acoustician, preferably under the age of 40, for achievement and services in the field of acoustics. Dr Fazi has made significant contributions to the field of electroacoustics over his career to date (at ISVR, University of Southampton), specifically focusing on electroacoustical inverse problems and loudspeaker array technology. Much of his research has been commercialised, mainly through startup companies, both in the UK and in the US. Dr Fazi, a regular at Reproduced Sound for many years, will be on hand at the conference to receive his award.


Exhibiting at Reproduced Sound is a very unique opportunity to show your company and products to some of the UK’s leading consultants, scientists, sound designers and specifiers. This year’s conference is expected to attract 100 delegates from all over the world.
