Lars Håkansson has been elected to the board of International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration for a period of four years.
At the recent election to the board of International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration (IIAV), Sweden got a representative on the board – Lars Håkansson, professor of mechanical engineering at Linnaeus University. Håkansson was elected for a period of four years, from July 2018 to July 2022.
International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration was formally established in 1995, but the first steps towards an international society within the field were taken as early as 1969. IIAV's goal is to deepen the knowledge about acoustics and vibration by creating an international, scientific association that answers to the needs of researchers and engineers all over the world whose primary interests are within the research fields of acoustics and vibrations.
Among other things, IIAV organises the international conference International Congress on Sound and Vibration that takes place in Japan in July each year. At this year's conference, Håkansson, together with senior lecturer Andreas Linderholt, will be responsible for the thematic area Acoustical Measurement and Instrumentation.
