The International Institute of Noise Control Engineering (I-INCE) was founded in 1974. It is a worldwide consortium of organizations concerned with noise control, acoustics and vibration. The primary focus of the Institute is on unwanted sounds and on vibrations producing such sounds when transduced.
I-INCE is the sponsor of the INTER-NOISE Series of International Congresses on Noise Control Engineering held annually in leading cities of the world. I-INCE also co-sponsors symposia on specialized topics within the I-INCE field of interest.
The quarterly magazine Noise/News International is jointly published by I-INCE and the Institute of Noise Control Engineering of the USA (INCE/USA). I-INCE instituted a program to undertake technical initiatives on critically-important issues of international concern within the I-INCE field of interest. This initiative has resulted in several reports and a number of active Technical Study Groups.
The I-INCE helps people to create a world free from unwanted sound.
The I-INCE facilitates and stimulates international cooperation and sharing on control, management and policies of noise and vibration.
