Dear Acoustician,

We enthusiastically invite you to attend the fifth joint ASA/ASJ meeting which will be held on the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii.

Those of you who have attended past joint meetings know that this is a beautiful site on the Pacific Ocean with access to many shops and restaurants. The fact that Hawaii is located between North America and Asia provides a special opportunity to meet with colleagues from these two continents, as well as from around the world.

We look forward to receiving your abstract and seeing you in Hawaii.

Sincerely,

Michael R. Stinson and Kentaro Nakamura
President, ASA and President, ASJ

Student Information and Activities

A student transportation subsidies fund has been established to provide limited funds to students to partially defray transportation expenses to meetings. No reimbursement is intended for the cost of food or housing. The amount granted each student depends on the number of requests received. To apply for a subsidy, submit a proposal by e-mail to be received by 24 October 2016 to: Jolene Ehl. The proposal should include your status as a student; whether you have submitted an abstract; whether you are a member of ASA; method of travel, and approximate cost of transportation.

Student Orientation and Meet and Greet

A New Students Orientation will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Monday, 28 November, in the Hibiscus room for all students to learn about the activities and opportunities available for students at the Honolulu meeting. This will be followed by the Student Meet and Greet from 5:30 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. in Rainbow I/II in the Rainbow Tower where refreshments and a cash bar will be available.

Student’s Reception

The Students’ Reception will be held on Wednesday, 30 November, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in Rainbow I/II in the Rainbow Tower. This reception, sponsored by the Acoustical Society of America and supported by the National Council of Acoustical Consultants, will provide an opportunity for students to meet informally with fellow students and other members of the Acoustical Societies of America and Japan. All students are encouraged to attend, especially students who are first time attendees or those from smaller universities.

Students Meet Members for Lunch (SMMfL) 

A student in the SMMfL program meets one-on-one with an ASA member over lunch during the ASA meeting. The purpose is to encourage students, as they embark on their acoustical careers, to network with more senior members. Each lunch pairing is arranged to ensure a good match between the student's and member's acoustical interests. Each participant pays for his/her own meal. Students who wish to participate should check the SMMfL check box in the on-line pre-registration form. They will be contacted later for additional information to assist with the matching process.

As an alternative, an interested student may e-mail Dr. David Blackstock the following information: name, university, department, degree being pursued (BS/BA, MS, or PhD), research field, acoustical interests, supervisor's name, days free for lunch during the meeting, and abstract number (or title) of any paper(s) being presented at the meeting. The sign-up deadline is 12 days before the start of the ASA meeting, but an earlier sign-up is strongly encouraged. The Students Meet Members for Lunch program is sponsored by the Committee on Education in Acoustics.

Other Information for Students

Students are also encouraged to visit the official ASA Student Home Page.

Weather 

The weather is generally very pleasant in the latter part of November, but cool weather can occur. For the week of the ASA meeting, temperatures are typically in the mid 70-80’s during the day, dropping into the lower 60 – 70’s at night. Occasional but brief rain showers can occur suddenly so having an umbrella or rain jacket is advisable.

Security

Attendees should be aware that late-November/December is “big wave” season in Hawaii. While waves of 10 to 30 feet are exhilarating to watch, their reach onto the beach can be treacherous. The State loses a few visitors each year due to lack of respect for the ocean. Swimmers should be aware that stinging jellyfish may reduce the pleasure of a winter swim. Please observe lifeguard warnings and any cautionary notices posted at beaches.

All attendees are cautioned not to carry significant amounts of cash, not to carry handbags on their sides next to a street, and not to leave possessions unattended, particularly at beaches or in vehicles parked at beaches and tourist viewpoints. While people generally are quite safe in their persons, Honolulu is a tourist center, and there is a crime element that targets tourists. It is not impolite to refuse solicitations and police should be called if people become too aggressive. Young children should not be left alone in hotel rooms (see Child Care section below).
