Automotive Acoustics Conference 2023

11-07-2023 – 12-07-2023 – Zurich, Switzerland or via live stream

Call for Papers

The significance of NVH for the value of an automobile cannot be overestimated. It reflects 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 international Automotive Acoustics Conference is perhaps the most important specialist forum where new NVH trends are examined and discussed every two years. For the 2023 edition, experts will again meet at the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute, a renowned Swiss think tank located in Zurich/Rueschlikon. The conference program includes presentations from OEMs, suppliers, engineering service providers and academic research institutes. The event will be complemented by an exhibition by various suppliers presenting innovations in the field of automotive acoustics management. The conference will be run in hybrid mode, participants will be able to attend the conference either on site or remotely through an online platform.

We are looking forward to your active participation and would be delighted to receive your submission of a proposal for a presentation at the 7th International ATZ Conference on Vehicle Acoustics.
