Organisational Structure for the International Year of Sound 2020

The founder of Geonoise Michel Rosmolen will be pro-active in the promotion of the Year of Sound 2020 as member of the steering committee for Asia Pacific, focussing on South-East Asian countries.

An array of exciting events and activities for the International Year of Sound 2020 will originate with the ICA centrally, the ICA Member Societies, groups involved with acoustics, and with La Semaine du Son. These are described in more detail on the Activities page.

Coordination of events will be an important part of the International Year of Sound, to keep everyone informed about what is being done across the world and to publicize the events. In this regard, several committees have been put in place:

  • Coordinating Committee with representation from all ICA Member Societies and International Affiliates
  • Liaison Committee to provide coordination between the ICA and the Semaine du Son organisations
  • Steering Committee to coordinate all activities of the IYS 2020 which will include events managed by the Coordinating Committee and the Liaison Committee

Additionally, activities organised by other groups (Affiliated Groups) will be publicized.
