Department of Acoustics, Faculty of Physics AMU

The Department of Acoustics at the Adam Mickiewicz University is the only “university representative” of acoustics in Poland. At present, the Department employs 28 researchers, including four professors, seven AMU professors and ten doctors.

There are research groups in the Department of Acoustics, dealing with various research topics, including: psychoacoustics, environmental acoustics, speech acoustics, hearing aids, audiology, electroacoustics, room acoustics, auditory-visual interaction, artificial intelligence and magnetic and electric ultrasound spectroscopy. In 2022, the Department of Acoustics established permanent cooperation with the Inter-Faculty Cognitive Neuroscience Center, whose laboratory is located at the Faculty of Physics of the Adam Mickiewicz University.

Psychoacoustics is a leading research area and focuses on analyzing the mechanisms of the hearing system for normal-hearing people and for people  with hearing loss. The nature of these studies correlates well with the works of the following research groups which focus on the human response to sound: psychophysiology of hearing for people with normal hearing and hearing loss, speech intelligibility, measurement and evaluation of tinnitus, environmental acoustics in the assessment of noise annoyance; electroacoustics – evaluation of electroacoustic transducers; and room acoustics – evaluating the sound propagation in rooms for different applications.
The Department of Acoustics conducts scientific and research cooperation with many national and foreign centers: the University of Cambridge (UK.), the University of Stockholm (Sweden), the Munich University of Technology, the University of Göttingen (Germany), the Kyushu Institute of Design, the Sendai University, the University of Tokyo,  The University of Manchester (UK) and The University of Minnesota (USA).

The positive outcomes of this foreign cooperation are the titles of Honoris Causa Doctor of the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, which have been awarded to leading acousticians: Professor Józef J. Zwisłocki (Syracuse University, USA) in 1991, and Professor Brian Cecil Joseph Moore (the University of Cambridge), in 2015.

The Conference (in a hybrid form) will be held at the Morasko Campus, Faculty of Physics, Adam Mickiewicz University, in fully equipped conference halls. Exhibitors will be provided with a well-located exhibition area.
