    Wind Turbine Noise 2013
    5th International Conference
    Marriott City Centre Hotel, Denver, USA
    28-30 August 2013

    A half-day introductory course on the fundamentals of acoustics, specifically designed for those with little or no background in acoustics and those interested in learning more about wind turbine noise, is planned for the afternoon of Tuesday 27 August. There will also be a small table-top exhibition.

    The Conference is organised by INCE/Europe in co-operation with the Institute of Noise Control Engineering–USA, whose NoiseCon 2013 conference will be held in the same venue on 26-28 August.
