photo_JKergomardJean Kergomard est aujourd’hui chercheur émérite au Laboratoire d’Acoustique et de Mécanique de Marseille (LMA). Chercheur au CNRS depuis 1973, il a préparé une thèse d’Etat au laboratoire d’acoustique musicale de l’Université Pierre et Marie Curie (1981), sous le titre « Champ interne et champ externe instruments à vent ». Il a ensuite été chercheur au Mans, où il a contribué à la création du laboratoire d’acoustique de l’Université du Maine (LAUM), dont il a été directeur de 1993 à 1999. Il y a contribué aux travaux sur l’acoustique dans les conduits (discontinuités, réseaux, dissipation) avec applications notamment aux silencieux d’automobiles et de réacteurs d’avion, outre les instruments de musique. Depuis 2000, il travaille au LMA principalement sur les auto-oscillations des instruments de musique, et collabore avec Buffet-Group. Il a co-écrit un livre avec Antoine Chaigne et d’autres contributeurs (Acoustique des instruments de musique, 2e édition, Belin, 2013). Il a été directeur-adjoint du LMA (2000-2003) et directeur de la Fédération de recherche Peiresc (Marseille, 2012-2014). Il a été président de la Société Française d’Acoustique (2006-2009), président de l’European Acoustics Association (2010-2013), dont il est actuellement vice-président, et il est rédacteur en chef d’Acta Acustica united with Acustica.



Pr. Murray Hodgson, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada

« Conception optimale des silencieux d’ouvertures internes de ventilation naturelle dans les bâtiments durables »

Amphi 501, Mercredi 23 avril 2014


Dr. Hodgson is Professor of Acoustics in the School of Population and Public Health and in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. He is the Director of the Acoustics and Noise Research Group [] and of the UBC NSERC CREATE Sustainable Building Science Program []. Dr. Hodgson graduated from Queen’s University with a B. Sc. (Hons) in Physics and Mathematics. He obtained an M. Sc. in Sound and Vibration Studies and a Ph.D. in Acoustical Engineering from the Institute for Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR), University of Southampton, UK. He is a Chartered Engineer (CEng) with the UK Engineering Council and a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America. Dr. Hodgson’s major professional expertise and research interests are in architectural and engineering acoustics, with particular interests in the acoustics of industrial workshops, classrooms and other workrooms, in computer room-prediction modeling, active and passive noise control, auralization, and in acoustical environments in sustainably-designed buildings. He teaches acoustics and noise control to undergraduate and graduate students in engineering, physics and occupational and environmental health/hygiene. He is the author of over 100 refereed journal articles and 250 conference papers in acoustics.



Pr. Keith Attenborough, The Open University, Milton Keynes, UK

« Using audio-frequency waves at porous and rough surfaces »

Amphi 501, Jeudi 24 avril 2014


KEITH ATTENBOROUGH was born in Nottingham, England. He received B.Sc. Physics (honours) at University College, London (UCL) in 1965 and a Ph.D. in Applied Science from the University of Leeds in 1969 for work on sound dissipation in porous media. After spending a year at the University of Liverpool as a Research Fellow, he joined the staff of the Open University in 1970. From 1970 to 1999, Keith rose through ranks from Lecturer to Head of the Department of Engineering. In 1999, he moved to the University of Hull. He returned to the Open University as Research Professor at the beginning of 2008. Currently he serves also as the Education Manager for the Institute of Acoustics. He has carried out theoretical and experimental studies on linear and nonlinear acoustical characteristics of porous surfaces, acoustical methods for surveying soils, sound propagation through suspensions and emulsions and outdoor sound propagation. These activities have been supported by sixteen (UK) Research Council Grants (3 SERC, 10 EPSRC, 2 AFRC and 1 BBSRC) and fifteen grants or contracts from other sources (including Ferranti International, Thorn -EMI, TRL, BRE, DOE, T&N Technology, ESDU International, MOD (QINETIQ), EC FP6&7, DSTL, AEA Technology and the US Army). Keith has supervised 21 Ph.D. theses, published 124 papers in refereed journals and made over 160 international conference presentations (including 10 invited ones). Keith has contributed six chapters to books and four books. His Research monographs include ‘Predicting Outdoor Sound’ (Taylor and Francis 2007) and ‘Aircraft Noise’ (Taylor and Francis 2011). Keith was Editor-in-Chief of Applied Acoustics from 2000 to 2010, Associate Editor (Noise) for the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America from 2005 to 2008 and has continued to serve as Associate Editor (Atmospheric propagation) for Acta Acustica United with Acustica since 2000.
His current (EPSRC-supported) research concerns exploitation of periodicity in designing materials and surfaces for noise control including modification of ground effects for outdoor noise control started as part of the EC FP7 HOSANNA project.
During his career, Keith has worked at The University of Leuven, The Pennsylvania State University, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Waterways Experimental Station (Vicksburg, Mississippi,) the University of Mississippi and the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. He was an invited speaker at the 25th anniversary celebration of LAUM at Le Mans. His research collaboration with French colleagues have included two EC projects (SOBER and HOSANNA) and the NATO research study group RSG11. He has served as rapporteur for six PhDs in France.



Dr. Marilyne Talmant, Laboratoire d’Imagerie Médicale, Paris

« Ultrasons et os cortical : tendances et perspectives »

Amphi 501, vendredi 25 avril 2014


Maryline Talmant is a CNRS researcher at the Laboratoire d’Imagerie Biomédicale – Paris. In 2012, she received the ‘Prix Chavasse’ from SFA. Her background was in physics with a degree in the field of remote sensing by means essentially of electromagnetic waves. She turned to the field of elastic waves during her doctoral research. Until 1998, her research focused on the mechanisms of coupling and radiation of evanescent waves in various reference homogeneous waveguides. Since 1998, she is involved in an interdisciplinary project related to the determination of ultrasonic biomarkers of human bone fragility. Her research is mainly related to the characterization of structural and material properties of inhomogeneous waveguides with the perspective of clinical assessment.
