The 2nd Franco-Chinese Acoustic Conference was held in Le Mans, France from October 29 to 31, 2018. More than 160 scholars from 38 institutes attended and discussed cutting-edge acoustic researches.
Ten researchers from the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences attended the meeting, among which Professor ZHANG Chunhua was invited as the honorary chairperson of the conference.
At the opening ceremony, Prof. Rachid EI Guerjouma, president of Le Mans University, welcomed scholars from China and other countries and expressed his hope for further cooperation in the field of acoustics between China and France.

The conference was organized around ten sessions, with two special reports and 195 papers discussed during four days. IACAS researchers GUO Xinyi and YANG Juan chaired the sessions named underwater noise and high frequency acoustic signal processing respectively. Other researchers also gave 11 academic reports and exhibited posters on relevant subjects.
Researchers learned about the study focus of other institutes and made full communication in the field of acoustical theory and technology, which generates new ideas and new methods for future research.
