In an effort to give industry members and supporting companies better visibility at the meetings, ASA is hosting the second Solutions Showcase in Nashville during the Fall 2022 meeting of the Society.  This will be an opportunity to present a product, service, or solution in a setting similar to a technical session, but without restricting the commercial character of the talk. We encourage current exhibitors, as well as others, to join in this event and share the development, technology, or performance of their product.

The list of presenters and abstracts can be found at Solutions Showcase Presentations.

Presentations in this event will not have a citation and are expected to be of a technical nature rather than with an emphasis on marketing. Practitioners will be especially encouraged to attend and interact with industry presenters. The Solutions Showcase is planned for Monday afternoon before the exhibit opening reception. for information about fees and participation options please contact Ana Jaramillo,


The Public Relations Committee and the AIP Media Services team present this hands-on workshop for meeting attendees who are interested in effectively communicating scientific work to the public on  Monday evening, 5 December. This workshop counts as the required media training for anyone interested in serving as a media liaison for their Technical Committee. The workshop will consist of presentations by media professionals to provide a toolkit of techniques for engaging the media. Following that, small group activities will give participants an opportunity to discuss and apply those techniques in round table discussions and practice sessions with media representatives. Though not required, attendees may find it helpful to have prepared a one minute “elevator pitch” of their research and/or an email response to a media person who has just asked for an interview about a recent publication. These items can be honed during planned round table events. The registration fee is USD $15 (USD $7 for students with current student IDs) for preregistration up to 7 November and USD $25 (USD $12 for students with current student IDs).  Register for this event at the time you register for the meeting.


A “Hot Topics” session sponsored by the Tutorials, Short Courses, and Hot Topics Committee will cover Noise, Physical Acoustics, and Structural Acoustics and Vibration.


Technical Committees will hold open meetings on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings (6, 7, 8 December). These are working, collegial meetings. Much of the work of the ASA is accomplished by actions that originate and are taken in these meetings including proposals for special sessions, workshops, and technical initiatives. All meeting participants are cordially invited to attend these meetings and to participate actively in the discussions.


All authors of Nashville meeting papers are encouraged to submit a pdf manuscript to ASA's Proceedings of Meetings on Acoustics (POMA). Things to note:

  • There is no publication fee, but presentation of the paper at the meeting is mandatory.
  • POMA does not have a submission deadline. Authors may submit manuscripts before or after the meeting; note, however, that review will not take place until after the meeting.
  • POMA has new Word and LaTeX manuscript templates and cover pages are now generated automatically at the time of publication.
  • Published papers are being both indexed in scholarly venues and highlighted on Twitter and Facebook.
  • Visit for additional information, including recent changes to the manuscript preparation/submission process.

The Belmont Large Theater is a 250-seat theater/mixing stage equipped with a state-of-the-art Dolby Atmos immersive audio system. The Dolby Corp. provided an Atmos Rendering and Mastering Unit (Dolby RMU) that allows faculty to teach the process of creating and compiling movies in Dolby Atmos, as well as traditional 7.1 and 5.1 surround sound formats. Belmont Audio Engineering and Motion Pictures were the first university-based programs capable of showing commercial films and developing and producing theater-ready films in the Atmos format in the world.
