INCE-USA and ASME NCAD Student Paper Competition
The INCE foundation and ASME NCAD are sponsoring a student paper competition, with up to 6 awards given to the most outstanding papers.
Authors from any country may apply.
The winner of the ASME NCAD award will receive $1000 at an ASME NCAD chapter meeting. Winners of the INCE Foundation awards will receive $500 US, plus an additional $500 if they attend the Internoise 2012 Awards Ceremony which will take place on Wednesday, 22 August 2012.
If an INCE winning paper is expanded and, after peer review, published in Noise Control Engineering Journal, the student will receive an additional $500 award.
All manuscripts will be scheduled for oral presentation during technical sessions
at the conference for which the paper was submitted. All contest entrants must present their papers in person in the
session to which their papers are assigned. INCE Foundation award winners must also be present in person at the awards ceremony of the
conference to receive the additional $500 US.
The abstract and paper deadlines are the same as those of the regular papers: 29 February and
15 29 May 2012. However, as of 16 May 2012 student paper competition entries are no longer being accepted.
Special Student Presentation Session 18.01 "Old Meets New"
INCE-USA is sponsoring a special session of student presentations of classic noise control papers with a $1,000 US prize. Students should pick one of the papers listed. Awards will be given based on the presentation itself. A paper is not required but an abstract should be submitted. The application deadline is the same as the abstract submission deadline:
29 February 2012. Contest rules and the list of classic papers may be downloaded here.
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. Additional work could include reproduction of the results in the paper, additional analysis, or showing how the original paper has influenced subsequent research or noise control practice, etc.
To submit your abstract, see item 18.01 on the Abstract Submission Site.
I-INCE Young Professional Grants
The Board of the International Institute of Noise Control Engineering
(I-INCE) is pleased to announce I-INCE Young Scientists Conference
Attendance Grants (YS Grants) to assist young scientists/engineers in
attending the 41th International Congress on Noise Control
Engineering (INTER-NOISE 2012). The I-INCE board has allocated funds
to support eighteen grants, each having a value of 500 EUR. The YS
Grant will include complimentary registration for the congress. The
remainder of the 500 EUR grant will be available at the time of the
congress as a contribution to partially cover travel and
accommodation expenses. Notification of the award of the prestigious
YS Grant may be used to assist with obtaining additional funding from
Candidates must be relatively early in their professional careers
(typically less than 10 years of active career). They can be either
undergraduate or postgraduate students, postdoctoral, or young
acousticians or noise control engineers working in industry.
Preference will be given to students. All guidelines can be found at
the I-INCE website www.i-ince.org. Look for the button on the
left-hand side that says "Young Professionals."
Note that you may apply to either the INCE-USA student paper competition, or the I-INCE Young Professional Grant competition, but not both.
We have reserved a small block of rooms for student paper competition contestents at the conference hotel - the Marriott Marquis - at the low rate of $218/night
(this price is inclusive of all taxes). However, we are requiring students who request these rooms to share with another student, lowering your rate to $109/night.
If you are interested in requesting one of these rooms, please (1) make a note on the student paper application form, and (2) send an email to Kim Riegel. If you have a preferred roommate, please also indicate this on the application form and in your email to Kim.
If you are unable and not interested in this option, we recommend the Chelsea Hostel as a safe, clean low-cost option.
The hostel is a short subway ride from the Marriott Marquis. Please reserve at least 2 months prior to the conference to be sure you secure a room.
Young Professionals Workshop
Join us in a new Internoise tradition and participate in the Young Professionals Workshop. Share some snacks and drinks with your peers and senior I-INCE members, and attend short presentations
on topics of interest to young engineers and scientists, like How to formulate and solve research problems, Publishing your paper in a technical journal,
and How to build up your professional network. The workshop will be in the Alvin/Edison rooms on Tuesday, August 21st, between 1:00 and 3:20 pm.
The agenda is available HERE.
