Recorded Presentations from Victoria Meeting Available

Approximately 400 of the 1000 lecture presentations given at the joint 176th Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) and 2018 Acoustics Week in Canada of the Canadian Acoustical Association (CAA) in Victoria from 7-11 November 2018, were recorded and are now being made available, with consent of the authors.

All meeting registrants are being given free access to the recordings.  Others who did not register for the meeting are able to purchase access to the entire collection of recordings by paying USD $275, equivalent to the one-day registration fee for the meeting. Please visit this website to browse the list of available talks and to purchase or gain access to the recordings.

As you may recall, a limited number of talks at the six ASA meetings prior to Victoria were also recorded through the live streaming initiative, and those will be made freely available soon through the ASA YouTube Channel. Click the bell icon on the upper right of that page to subscribe and be notified when new material is added.

If you have any questions about this new resource, please contact We hope to see you at the next ASA meeting in Louisville, 13-17 May 2019, where we plan to celebrate the 90thAnniversary of the society!
