The Society holds two meetings each year, most of which are held at various locations in the U.S. and Canada. At each meeting, invited and contributed papers and poster presentations, usually number between 850 and 1100, reflect the diversity and interests of the membership. Tutorials, lectures, technical and standards committee meetings, and visits to university, government, and industrial laboratories are regular features, along with receptions and a variety of social programs. These meetings offer opportunities for students and young researchers as well as experienced acousticians to share information. Members who are able attend meetings regularly find the personal contacts a rewarding experience. Send a message to if you wish to receive information on society meetings.
