Gallery of Acoustics

The Technical Committee on Signal Processing in Acoustics will sponsor the 14th Gallery of Acoustics at the Acoustical Society of America meeting in San Francisco, CA. Its purpose is to enhance ASA meetings by providing a setting for researchers to display their work to all meeting attendees in a forum emphasizing the diversity, interdisciplinary, and artistic nature of acoustics. The Gallery of Acoustics provides a means by which we can all share and appreciate the natural beauty, aesthetic, and artistic appeal of acoustic phenomena: This is a forum where science meets art.

The Gallery will consist of a multimedia collection of images, videos, audio clips, and narrations, of images and/or sounds generated by acoustic processes or resulting from signal and image processing of acoustic data. Images and videos can consist of actual visualizations of acoustic processes or of aesthetically and technically interesting images resulting from various signal and image processing techniques and data visualization. Audio clips and segments should also have aesthetic, artistic, and technical appeal. It is possible to submit a poster entry but permission from Brian Anderson should be obtained prior to submission. Recently the highly ranked entries have been video entries (a series of photos or video, with audio narration or text to read). The top 3-6 submitted video entries are then burned onto a common DVD that is played on a loop on a TV in a main lobby of the conference hotel for all to see. These video entries must be limited to 3 minutes in duration (STRICTLY ENFORCED). We strongly suggest submission of QuickTime or MPEG (with QuickTime compatible CODEC) formats with a widescreen (16:9) aspect ratio (resolution of 960x540 is recommended). Entries must be submitted electronically, either by e-mail attachment, or by mailing a CD, or DVD to the address given below.

Entries must be accompanied by all authors’ names and affiliations, a brief description of the entry and importance or interest of the entry (no more than 1000 words), and statement of permission to display the entry at the meeting. The meeting attendees will vote on the entries on the basis of aesthetic/artistic appeal, ability to convey and exchange information, and originality. A cash prize of $500 will be awarded to the winning entry.

The relevant deadlines are as follows:

(1) 1 September 2013: Deadline for notice of intent to submit. Include a title, an abstract, a complete author list with full contact information, and a basic description of the proposed entry. This information won’t be published anywhere, rather it is used to help guide entrants in their submissions. Please indicate the primary point of contact.

(2) 30 September 2013: Deadline for the receipt of all entries and materials.

Transportation and Travel Information

Air Transportation

San Francisco is served by many major airlines through San Francisco International Airport (SFO). Information is available at http://www.flysfo.com. San Francisco International Airport consists of four terminals; 1, 2, 3, and International. AirTrain, a fully automated and free of charge people-mover system, connects all four terminals, the two international terminal garages, the BART station, and the airport’s Rental Car Center. Although it is possible to walk between terminals passengers must ride AirTrain to access the Rental Car Center.

Ground Transportation

Taxi: Taxis depart from designated taxi zones located at the roadway center islands, on the Arrivals/Baggage Claim Level of all terminals. Uniformed taxi coordinators are stationed at the taxi zones from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. to assist passengers with questions or concerns. Rates average USD $41.00 from the airport to the Hilton San Francisco Union Square. By sharing a ride, up to 5 persons can ride for the price of 1 person. Drive takes approximately 30 minutes.

Shared Ride Van: Shared-ride vans provide service between SFO and passenger-specified locations. Depending on the number of passengers, shared-ride vans may make multiple stops and therefore varies on the time it takes to get to the hotel. Van service is available on a walk-up basis. However, passengers are advised to make reservations for service after 11:00 p.m. Shared-ride vans pick up passengers on the Departures/Ticketing Level from the roadway center island at all terminals. Rates average $17 per person for a one way trip.

Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART): BART operates rapid rail service directly between SFO and San Francisco. The SFO BART Station is located on the Departures/Ticketing Level of the International Terminal (Boarding Area G side). BART is easily accessed from any terminal by riding SFO's AirTrain to the Garage G/BART Station stop. Take the BART to the Powell St. Station. Exiting the station, take a left (this will be Market Street). Turn right on Powell Street and continue for approximately two blocks. Then take a left on O'Farrell Street. Travel two blocks and the Hilton Union Square will be on your left. Rates are an average of $5.65 per person for a one-way trip. Transportation from the airport to Powell St. Station is approximately 30 minutes.

Rental Car: We do not recommend renting a car unless you are planning trips out of town. Most everything you need should be within walking distance of the hotel.

Driving/Parking Information

From the South (including SFO): Take Highway 101 North and exit at 7th Street. Turn right on Folsom Street, then left on 5th Street. Continue right on Cyril Magnin Street then left on Ellis Street. Hotel garage is 1 block ahead between Mason & Taylor Streets. Drive takes approximately 30 minutes.

From the East: Take Highway 80 West across the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. Bridge toll for two axle vehicles is $4 to $6 (westbound only, towards San Francisco) depending upon the time of day and whether crossing during a weekday or on the weekend. Exit left at 5th Street in San Francisco. Continue right on Cyril Magnin Street then left on Ellis Street. Hotel garage is 1 block ahead between Mason & Taylor Streets.

From the North: Take Highway 101 South across the Golden Gate Bridge. Bridge toll for two axle vehicles is $5 to $6 (southbound only, towards San Francisco) and is collected either by FasTrak electronic toll collection ($5) or by mail invoice ($6) sent to the address registered to the vehicle license plate number (determined by photograph taken as the vehicle passes through the toll gate). Continue on Highway 101 South. Turn right onto US-101 S / Van Ness Avenue. Turn left onto O’Farrell Street (approximately 1.2 miles). Hotel will be on the right after approximately 0.6 miles. To get to the hotel parking, continue to Mason Street and turn right. Turn right on Ellis Street, parking entrance will be on the right.

The on-site parking fee is $53.58 (per 24 hours) for self-parking and $59.28 (per 24 hours) for valet parking.

Many convenient off-site parking options are available in the immediate area including the Mason O’Farrell Garage located at 325 Mason Street (across O’Farrell Street from the hotel) where the rate is $32 per 24 hours.

Weather

San Francisco enjoys an eternally spring-like climate. Temperatures beside the Golden Gate average 54-65 degrees Fahrenheit (12-18 Celsius) in summer, 48-59 degrees (8-14 C.) in winter. San Francisco residents save on wardrobe costs because the same clothes suffice year round - knits, light wools, long sleeves and pants.

Room Sharing

ASA will compile a list of those who wish to share a hotel room and its cost. To be listed, send your name, telephone number, e-mail address, gender, smoker or nonsmoker preference, not later than 15 October 2013 to the Acoustical Society of America, by e-mail, asa@aip.org. The responsibility for completing any arrangements for room sharing rests solely with the participating individuals.

Information for Students

Student participation is highly encouraged at ASA Meetings. Students will find a sticker to place on their name tags identifying them as students in their registration envelopes. Although wearing the sticker is not mandatory, it will allow for easier networking between students and other meeting attendees.

Students are encouraged to refer to the student guide, also found in their envelopes, for important program and meeting information pertaining only to students attending the ASA meeting. They are also encouraged to visit the official ASA Student Home Page at www.acosoc.org/student/ to learn more about student involvement in ASA.
