Committee on International Research and Education (CIRE)

The Committee on International Research and Education seeks to enhance the Acoustical Society of America's (ASA) role in International Research and Education. Accordingly, it has generated the following initiatives:

  • CIRE has joined with International Commission for Acoustics (ICA) to provide funding of $2000 for "Specialty Conferences" (conferences on a restricted topic involving less than 100 participants) in developing countries.
  • CIRE provides "International Student Grants" of approximately $750 to assist the research of promising graduate students, principally from developing countries. The International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration (IIAV) is contributing additional funding to the student grant program.

Please visit the CIRE page for futher details about these funding opportunities.
