Last week, nine researchers from the Hearing Systems group, DTU Elektro, participated at the annual meeting (DAGA) of the German Acoustical Society, which took place in Nürnberg this year. The contributions of the group were acknowledged with four awards.

Once per year, the "Deutsche Gesellschaft für Akustik" (DEGA) awards theLothar Cremer Preis” for outstanding achievements of young academics.This year, Dr. Bastian Epp, assistant professor at Hearing Systems, DTU Elektro, received the award for his contributions within physiological and psychological acoustics. In particular, Bastian Epp strongly contributed to a better understanding of the processing of sound in the human inner ear and consequences both for the generation mechanisms of so-called otoacoustic emissions as well as the perception of complex sounds.
PhD student Axel Ahrens and research assistant Wiebke Lamping both received the DEGA student grant that came with a free participation at DAGA 2015, a travel allowance of 250 € and a one-year DEGA membership. PhD student Johannes Käsbach received the DAGA poster award.

The award celebration took place in Nürnberg on Tuesday, March 17. With more than 1.300 delegates and more than 700 contributions, the annual conference is a highlight of acoustics in Germany each year.
