Welcome to ICBEN 2020

The 13th ICBEN Congress on Noise as a Public Health Problem will be held in Stockholm June 15-18, 2020 at Karolinska Institutet campus Solna. We look forward to welcoming delegates from countries around the world. Updates of the evidence and new research on the biological effects of noise will be presented in key note lectures, oral presentations and posters. The social program will include a reception at the magnificent City hall, an informal boat trip in the Stockholm Archipelago and a guided acoustic tour. Information on how to register, submit abstracts and other practical information will be published later.


ICBEN is the International Commission on Biological Effects of Noise. Its goal is to promote a high level of scientific research concerning all the aspects of noise-induced effects on human beings including preventive regulatory measures and to keep alive a vivid communication among the scientists working in that field. ICBEN is an affiliate member of the International Commission for Acoustics (ICA). The main activity of ICBEN evolves around its congresses that are organized every 3 years and regularly attract between 200 and 300 researchers and policy makers from across the globe. Proceedings of past ICBEN congresses are available here http://www.icben.org/Proceedings.html
