Materials come in a variety of forms to provide sound absorption, isolation and vibration damping. In the last decades, the use and variety of available materials has increased greatly. Recent advances in material science, chemistry, and nanotechnologies are producing significant improvements in the design, production, and performance of specialized materials. Papers related (but not limited) to advances, development, analysis and/or optimization of materials that have been produced for the specific purpose of providing high values of sound absorption, vibration damping, and vibration and/or noise isolation are welcome within this Subject Area. The papers can be related to fundamental research, and/or applications, related to design, modelling, testing, and/or manufacturing of noise and vibration control materials. Due to the importance of the subject, this Subject Area will also welcome studies on environmentally friendly materials that are made of recycled products and/or through less contaminating processes.

The Theme Area Road and Rail Transportation Noise and Vibration covers the broad issue of generation and propagation of sound and ground borne vibration from road and rail transport. Structured sessions will be dedicated partly to the urban environment, with low speed rail bound transport and road transport. In addition, novel mitigation measures against noise from main roads, such as low noise pavements, will be highlighted. Recent developments such as the revision of EU type approval standards and the gradual increase of electric and hybrid vehicles will be treated. Rail induced vibration has gained more attention in recent years and structured sessions will be organized for this topic.

Airborne and Ground borne Noise from Urban LRT Networks is considered a major parameter of possible degradation of the urban acoustic environment. Important adverse effects consist of increased levels of annoyance due to the vibration transmitted to buildings. Recent - state of the art - research developments have led to significant advances in the subject of railway-induced building vibrations over the past twenty years. Problems related to vibrations in buildings represent an important environmental issue in network designs, especially for nearby structures in densely populated cities.
