BNAM 2016, Baltic-Nordic Acoustic Meeting in Stockholm

More than 140 acousticians and sound experts mainly from the Nordic countries gathered in June in Stockholm, Sweden, for the BNAM* 2016 (Baltic-Nordic Acoustic Meeting). The venue was KTH Royal Institute of Technology (https://www.kth.se/en) and of course staff from the Marcus Wallenberg Laboratory for Sound and Vibration Research (MWL) was heavily involved in this acoustic conference and event.

Fantastic summer weather greeted the delegates and added to the positive experience. A smaller exhibition took place and especially the coffee sessions made the site very lively and buzzing.
