ISCEx 2020 Event Summary
ISCEx 2020 took place at Coombe Abbey on 17-18th March amidst the backdrop of the ever changing situation regarding Covid-19. At the time of deciding to go-ahead with ISCEx 2020, which was made right at the very last minute, the ISCEx Committee were being led by scientific-led and daily updated advice from the Government.
Understandably a number of exhibitors and speakers withdrew at the last moment but those exhibitors and visitors in attendance did so with a sense of camaraderie and many commented they wanted to be present and were grateful the event had not been cancelled. Visitor numbers for the 2nd day were down, in spite of record pre-registrations for the event, however the Members’ Day, which took place on the first day of ISCEx was the best attended in the event’s history.
One of many highlights of the Members’ Day was a virtual presentation, made via Zoom, by Dr Gianluca Memoli, Senior Lecturer in Novel Interfaces and Interactions (Informatics) at University of East Sussex., demonstrating the Shaping of Sound, highlighting how a sound projector can be used to beam audio to a moving person.
Attendees were invited to pre-register for a Free Hearing Test on the 2nd day, which was gratefully received by those that attended. Two brilliant seminars were also presented by Alberto Fueyo Gallego MInstSCE and Jamie Angus.
