A broad range of topics in acoustics will be covered in technical sessions and keynote lectures. Presentations on emerging topics are especially encouraged. Social events, student events, and an accompanying persons program will be organized.
The best features of meetings of both organizations will be combined to offer a premier venue for presenting your work to an international audience.
Boston is the capital of and largest city in Massachusetts and is one of the oldest cities in the United States. It is on the Atlantic coast and is home to many historic sites dating back to the American Revolution, in addition to many other cultural and recreational features. The climate in June is very pleasant and ideal for arranging visits before and after the meeting.
A team of individuals from the EAA and the ASA are working enthusiastically to organize the meeting. We hope you will join us in Boston in 2017 to help us make the meeting a success.
