Hearing, Audio and Audiology Sciences Meeting

Hearing, Audio and Audiology Sciences Meeting


This conference is of interest to anyone in the UK and the world who has an interest in the science of Hearing, Audio and Audiology. The plan is for a two-day meeting, in the mould of Basic Auditory Science meetings of Legend.

The aims of the conference are to meet the need for in-person scientific exchange after the COVID disruption

  • Expanded the scope of the meeting to include more interdisciplinary aspects that are part of UKAN. Specifically, we invite participation of other UKAN SIGs: Bioacoustics, Biomedical, Communication, spatial and immersive audio). The goal is to enable to look over the horizon: if we want to solve the big problems of the future, we need to get out of our comfort zone and we need to engage the next generation!
  • The meeting will start mid-morning on Monday and end mid-afternoon Tuesday, with most of the presentation being via poster, and several sessions of talks (~10 talks across two days).
  • University accommodation is provided - bookable at the time of registration - low cost (determined by our university's non-negotiable costs: accommodation, morning coffee, room rent).
  •  We hope to provide a free BBQ Monday night for everyone to attend in a more social environment
  • Opportunity to listen to talks online, streamed as much content as possible to allow people to participate who can't travel (poster sessions are not streamed).
  •  Opportunity to present 'electronic posters' on numerous large screens.
    Tours through the ISVR new world-leading anechoic chambers.

EUROMECH2022 Colloquium on Mechanics of Soft Active Polymers


With the rapid development of novel technologies in the area of robotics, smart textiles (including wearable sensors), wireless sensors networks and Internet of Things, autonomous systems, medical sensors and devices, additive manufacturing and assistive technologies, an unprecedented need has been experienced for flexible and versatile materials, capable of combining various chemical, electrical and mechanical properties. Soft Active Polymers (SAPs) represent such a group of materials that is distinctly characterised by their ability to respond to external stimuli such as mechanical, electrical or magnetic fields, temperature or humidity, biological or chemical processes and so on. Moreover, SAPs possess a number of remarkable properties like flexibility and softness, large deformability and conformability, biocompatibility, sensitivity and responsiveness, low weight and scalability (from macro to micro/nano scale), which make these materials superior and cost-effective in certain applications compared to other materials. In particular, these features make them highly suitable as building materials for actuators, sensors, energy harvesters or all-in-one sophisticated soft robots, and consequently appropriate for a variety of existing and emerging applications. However, their mechanical properties like viscoelasticity and hyperelasticity (with strain that can attain 300 to 700%), as well hysteresis, creep and relaxation strongly effect other coupled material properties, among which the dielectric permittivity, energy losses and reaction time.
