7th International ATZ Conference on Vehicle Acoustics | Hybrid Event

Automotive Acoustics Conference 2023

Acoustics and NVH are amongst the prime indicators of vehicle quality and refinement. They hence enjoy an increasing focus in automotive research and development, at a time of fundamental changes in powertrain configurations. Vehicle architectures, powertrain systems and design paradigms have been globally challenged in recent years by emissions legislation aimed at promoting energy-efficient vehicles. In the very near future, the same or even higher NVH performance levels will need to be achieved with lightweight structures, downsized and turbocharged engines, or even alternative powertrains. The international Automotive Acoustics Conference provides an essential global forum for the exchange of information.

The international Automotive Acoustics Conference is a biennial global forum for the exchange of information and networking among engineers engaged in further improving the NVH characteristics of passenger cars and commercial vehicles. The principal themes of the conference explore the technological innovations as well as the market and regulatory demands that are driving the state of the art in the automotive industry. Furthermore, the conference caters to the needs of researchers and developers alike by addressing growing expectations with regard to vehicle performance and sustainability. It also touches upon the particular challenge that developments in one area of the car often also affect its acoustic characteristics – especially as perceived by the end user.

High standards of noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) performance are of major significance to the value of an automobile. They reflect the quality and refinement of a vehicle in an audible and tangible way, especially for electrified vehicles where the absence of the engine combustion noise is changing the paradigm of the sources contributing to interior and exterior NVH.

The 7th Automotive Acoustics Conference will cover its customary broad spectrum of themes, giving participants a comprehensive, biennial snapshot of the state of the art in acoustics and NVH from a global perspective. This year’s conference program features 22 presentations from leading industry executives, including keynote lectures by BYD, Stellantis and FEV.

The 2023 edition of this leading global conference in the field of automotive acoustics will again take place at the renowned Swiss think tank Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute, located in Zurich/Rueschlikon. The conference will be run in hybrid mode, allowing participants to participate either on site or remotely through an online platform.

The Automotive Acoustics Conference is aimed at professionals working in acoustics and NVH at OEMs, component and systems suppliers, engineering consultancy partners, and those conducting research at academic institutions. They are active in different, but complementary, parts of the process chain: development, design, material and component characterization/ validation, calculation and simulation, testing and production.
