All papers should be submitted as PDFs through the conference website.

All papers submitted for the conference will be published electronically in the prestigious Proceedings of the Institute of Acoustics.

All papers will be accessible to delegates during the conference, and they will be made open access after the conference on the Institute of Acoustics website.

Copyright. Papers that have been published in the IOA proceedings may be used by the authors for secondary purposes and published elsewhere. The source of the article has to be acknowledged and a link – if available, to the DOI of the article.
