UKAN+ Workshop on Soundscapes

I am really grateful to everyone who came to the UKAN+ Workshop on Soundscapes organised by myself along with Lorenzo from the Spatial Acoustics and Immersive Audio special interest group and others from the Communication and Room Acoustics, Noise and Soundscape and Bioacoustics special interest groups.
I am looking forward to taking part in more workshops in the future!

The workshop took place in person on the 5th of April, please see the flyer here.
The purpose of this workshop was to explore UK research in soundscapes, encourage knowledge exchange and discuss future directions, and provided an opportunity to form teams and consortia for future research collaborations and funding proposals.
The workshop focused on both outdoor and indoor soundscapes, and moved beyond the more traditional research on the subject, looking at different aspects such as sensing, AI, policy, etc.
