In the time leading up to Forum Acusticum,  Karin Loh presented A Concept to Evaluate Activity-Based Acoustic Settings in Preschools for Children Aged Three to Six (co-authors: Julia Seitz, Frederike Rust, and Janina Fels) at Internoise 2023 which took place between August 20th and 23rd in Chiba, Japan. Further, at I3DA (September 5th to 7th, Bologna – Italy), Pascal Palenda will give a talk on a Setup for Chior Recordings in Virtual Churches (co-authors: Lukas Aspöck, Stefan Morent, and Michael Vorländer).

We are also happy to contribute to the EAA Summer School in Torino, which takes place between September 8th and 10th, immediately before Forum Acusticum. In two Hot Topics Auralization and Toolboxes for Auditory and Psychoacoustic Research students will get valuable input from Lukas Aspöck and Janina Fels.

Finally, we congratulate Julia Seitz on receiving the EAA Travel Grant for Forum Acusticum!
