The ASA reserves the right to reject any submitted abstract without giving extensively documented reasons.

The presentation, and therefore the abstract, must be relevant to the field of acoustics, and focus on scientific developments, applications, standards, or education. Statements of political advocacy or explicit advertisement of products or services must be avoided.
