Their submission was a poster presentation demonstrating room acoustics, noise control, and acoustic isolation techniques in building planning and room design. Individual students or teams of two or three undergraduate or graduate students were eligible. Almost all of the 12 poster submissions from the United States and around the world were from graduate programs in acoustics. The anonymous entries were displayed and professionally judged at the society's May 2016 meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah.
