The 3D measurement, recording, reconstruction and simulation of soundscape in outdoor scenarios are covered in this session. Researchers are invited to present practical implementations of auralization strategies in soundscape design, with special interest for urban areas, such as parks, squares, open spaces, and natural areas.

Keywords: soundscape, measurements and simulations, acoustic modeling, auralization


Francesco Asdrubali is full professor of Building Physics and Building Energy Systems at the University of Roma Tre since 2015. Previously he served as Assistant Professor and Associate Professor at the University of Perugia.

Graduated in Civil Engineering in 1990, he obtained a PhD in Thermophysical properties of materials in 1995 and served as Director of CIRIAF, an Inter-University Research Center in the field of environment and pollution, based at the University of Perugia, from 2004 till 2013.

His teaching activities include the courses of Environmental and Room Acoustics, Applied Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer, Energy systems and Environment in the Universities of Perugia and Roma Tre.

The areas of scientific research cover a wide range of topics, such as acoustical properties of materials, environmental noise and soundscape, sustainable mobility, renewable and alternative energies, heat transfer, energy and buildings, Life Cycle Assessment.

Francesco Asdrubali is author of more than 400 scientific papers, most of them with international diffusion. He is member of the Editorial Board of various international Journals and Editor in Chief of two Journals in the field of acoustics: Building Acoustics and Noise Mapping.

The international activities include the coordination of various national and EU-funded Projects (LIFE, Intelligent Energy Europe, VII FP; Horizon 2020) and the participation to a COST Action on acoustic innovative materials.

Member of the Scientific and Organizing Committees and Session Organizer of several international conferences, such as ICSV16 (2009), ICAE International Congress on Applied Energy (2011), ECOS (2012), EAA Euroregio (2013), ICSV22 (2015), Euronoise (2015), ICSV23 (2016), ICSV24 (2017), Internoise (2017), Building Simulation (2019), ICSV26 (2019), Forum Acusticum (2023).
