The Special Interest Group for Communications and Room Acoustics (SIG-COMMS) will bring together researchers and practitioners developing solutions to improve communication and the internal environment for people. The aims of the group are aligned with those of the Network, focusing in particular on generating and developing research activity in speech, hearing, communication, electro-acoustics and room design to facilitate the targeting of key national and international research challenges and priorities. The SIG will act as a forum for those working within communication and room acoustics to exchange ideas and to address critical issues, such as improving the outreach of acoustic research and solutions, optimising electro-acoustic systems or fathoming ways to reproduce the acoustics of rooms for the benefit of all people. The SIG will also facilitate access to and sharing of resources in order to accelerate the UK’s position in this field. Since communication is fundamental to people, and as such underpinning a diverse range of acoustics applications, the SIG-COMMS will work to encourage outreach research activities. In particular, the SIG-COMMS will coordinate with the Speech and Hearing Group within the Institute of Acoustics, the Audio Engineering Society, and the Technical Committee for Architectural Acoustics in the Acoustical Society of America and the Newman Advisory Panel. The SIG COMMS will encourage participation and contributions from industrial developers, contractors, and consultants in the fields of communication, speech and hearing. electro-acoustics, and architectural acoustics.
