FREE Registration — Student Volunteer Opportunities at INTER-NOISE 2018
Student volunteers are needed to provide back-up support to INTER-NOISE 2018 technical sessions. Volunteers will attend assigned sessions and make themselves available in the event that the session chair and/or technical staff need additional assistance. This will be an excellent networking opportunity. Sessions will be assigned to match student interests and availability. Schedule will allow for activities such as paper presentations. Contact Dana Lodico for more information (dlodico@illingworthrodkin.com).

"Classic Papers in Noise Control Engineering" Competition
INCE-USA is sponsoring a special session of seminal noise control papers open to students, "Classic Papers in Noise Control Engineering" for INTER-NOISE 2018. Students will present on one of the classic papers listed in the entry form. An award will be given based on the student's presentation itself. The abstract should focus on the main thrust of the original paper and the focus of the presentation, which could also include additional work that has been done by the student presenter. The additional work could include reproduction of the results in the original paper, additional analysis, or influence of the original paper on subsequent research or noise control practice, etc. A winner, as determined by the INCE-USA judging panel, will receive $1000 if she or he attends the INTER-NOISE 2018 Awards Ceremony.

INCE-USA Travel Awards

Michiko So Finegold Award for graduate student/young professional travel
For the fifth year, INCE-USA is pleased to offer the Michiko So Finegold Award, supporting U.S. graduate students and young professionals traveling to NOISE-CON 2017 to present their work on noise effects, development of noise policy, and related aspects of noise control engineering. Qualified graduate students/young professionals need to be nominated using the form available here (coming soon). Applications will be processed as received. If you are a graduate student or young professional, please ask for a nomination to be submitted on your behalf from a current/former professor or supervisor. This award is funded by the INCE Foundation through an endowment from the Michiko So Finegold Memorial Trust.

Hallberg Foundation Award for student travel
INCE-USA is pleased to be able to offer the Hallberg Foundation award, supporting North American undergraduate or graduate students traveling to INTER-NOISE 2018 to present their work in any areas of noise control engineering. Multiple awards will be offered. As with the Michiko So Finegold Award, qualified students need to be nominated using the form available here (coming soon), and applications will be processed as received. If you are a current student, please contact a professor to complete the nomination form on your behalf.

Award Eligibility for INCE-USA Awards
A person who has won any of the student/young professional awards previously is not eligible this year for that same award. A person may be nominated for both travel awards but will only be able to receive one of them. Participating in Student Paper Competition does not affect eligibility for either of the travel awards. Awardees are determined solely by the INCE-USA Honors and Awards Committee and any independent volunteers who may be solicited by the committee. The INCE-USA Honors and Awards Committee will make awards based on nominee/applicant qualifications and available funding. Many thanks to the generous donors who make these awards possible.


Student Breakfast
This is a chance to meet with professional noise control engineers to discuss career choices, learn about the companies or organizations they work for (or own), and understand what they are looking for in new employees. Please let us know when you register if you plan to attend. Check program for date, time and location.


Young Professionals Workshop

The Young Professionals Workshop will provide an outstanding program of presentation and discussion on topics including professional organizations, publications and the publication process, networking, and professional development. There will be a team of industry leading senior professionals providing input and guidance with regard to professional development and career planning. There will also be time for discussion with both the senior staff and among the young professionals on topics of interest. This is an outstanding opportunity to learn, discuss concerns, network, and perhaps find mentors for the future.
