Conference on Acoustical Violence
I have some news about the First International Multidisciplinary Conference
on Acoustical Violence.
It will take place in Rosario, Argentina, on October 2 and 3, 1997 at the
"Centro Cultural Bernardino Rivadavia", San Martin 1080, 2000 Rosario
They are organized by the ASOLOFAL (Asociacion de Logopedia, Foniatria y
Audiologia del Litoral), sponsored by the FUNPREVI (Fundacion para la
Prevencion de la Violencia).
The slogan of the Conference is "Towards a healthy sound environment", and
the general objective is to get a multidisciplinary approach to a sort of
violence generally not acknowledged as such, as well as to bring together
different prevention criteria.
Topics to be covered include:
a) Labor Acoustical Violence
Causes and effects, prevention, noise and vibration control, Labor Risk
Act, simulation and dissimulation.
b) Urban Acoustical Violence
Acoustical Violence in and from transport, Acoustical Violence at public
shows, acoustic advertissement.
c) Social Acoustical Violence
Acoustical Violence at home, schools, amusement, hospitals.
Papers shall be submitted in complete version by September 15, and may
cover any of the aforementioned topics, as well as any other directly
related to the Conference.
Three panels, each on one of the main topics, will be held gathering
experts from several disciplines (medicine, phonoaudiology, psychology,
architecture, law, engineering)
Finally, there will be four lectures on General Violence, Acoustical
Violence's otologic and non-otologic effects, Urban noise and Noise Regulations
Note: the panels and lectures will be spanish-spoken, but I think it is
possible to arrange to have a translation service.
Registration fee: $40
