The Polytechnic School of the University of São Paulo, through its Mechanical Engineering Department, is promoting the First International Journey of Mobility Acoustics in 2008. The goal of this event is to bring together the technical and scientific community and specialists of the productive sector from Brazil and abroad. A unique opportunity for technological update, when renowned specialists from the various branches of mobility, including hydro and underwater, road, air and rail, will be presenting the most significant advances of the vibroacoustics specialty.

Strategies and purposes of the event:

  • To promote the interchange, as well as to value professionals, companies, universities and institutions involved with mobility acoustics .
  • Bridging universities and companies.
  • To highlight the state-of-the-art of technologies developed by the national and international industries of mobility.
  • To create a forum for discussing matters related to national and international standards and legislation.
  • To be in contact with specific solutions regarding different kinds of transportation.
