Join the Conversation
If you're involved with ASA Standards, get ready to give us a hand in Ottawa!
Date to be Announced
We're looking for volunteers attending ASA’s May 2024 Meeting in Ottawa to be part of a special Workshop developing a new ASA Standards product.
This workshop—led by Dr. Donald Peterson, Dean, College of Engineering and Engineering Technology, Northern Illinois University—is tasked with promoting the involvement of stakeholders to encourage collaboration across various sectors to capture expectations for new ASA Standards “how to” guides that will accompany and complement select ASA standards—Guides designed to assist standards users (e.g., university students, industry practitioners and government officials) on how to apply the standards’ technical information in a practical, efficient way for their work or research. Consider them “quick start manuals” to putting standards into play right away!
Whether you’ve participated in standards development, incorporated engineering standards in coursework, use standards in manufacturing, or applied a standard in the field, we welcome your experience and input—and hope you’ll join us! Contact ASA Standards at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
A “Hot Topics” session will be sponsored by the Student Council. Topics to be covered will be announced at a later time.
Affinity Listening Spaces
ASA values providing a safe space for all its members. To facilitate that, the member engagement committee will provide time and space for members of affinity groups to meet and discuss important issues with other ASA members from underrepresented identities. All groups will meet together for some initial networking and then participants will break out into discussion groups specific to their identities.
Open Meetings of Technical Committees
Technical Committees will hold open meetings on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings (14, 15, and 16 May). 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.
Itinerary Planner, Mobile App, and Meeting Program
An itinerary planner and mobile app will be available for the Ottawa meeting. A complete meeting program will be available at the meeting. Abstracts will be published on the ASA webpage in April.
PROCEEDINGS OF MEETINGS ON ACOUSTICS (POMA) AND PROCEEDINGS OF ACOUSTICS WEEK IN CANADA 2024
The Ottawa meeting will have a published proceedings, and submission is optional. The proceedings will be a separate volume of the online journal Proceedings of Meetings on Acoustics (POMA). This is an open access journal, so that its articles are available in pdf format for downloading without charge to anyone in the world. All authors who are scheduled to present papers at the meeting are encouraged to prepare a suitable version in pdf format that will appear in POMA. It is not necessary to wait until after the meeting to submit one’s paper to POMA. Further information regarding POMA, including MS Word and LaTeX templates, can be found at the site https://pubs.aip.org/asa/poma.
Authors who are members of the Canadian Acoustical Association (CAA) are invited to submit a two-page conference proceedings paper that will be published in Canadian Acoustics in the June 2024 issue.
CAA authors who also submit a paper to POMA should change the POMA paper title to differentiate from the CAA proceedings paper. Content of the papers is also expected to differ following naturally from the 12-page limit for POMA and the 2-page format for Canadian Acoustics. See the CAA webpage at https://jcaa.caa-aca.ca/index.php/jcaa for details.
POMA is holding a society-wide student paper competition for a POMA submission based on a presentation or poster from the Ottawa meeting.
Award Amounts: Up to five student papers will receive an award of USD $300. Additionally, the student paper winners will be noted on the POMA cover page and their article will be promoted in email and social media campaigns.
To qualify for the award, an author must:
To enter: Indicate your paper is part of the POMA Student Paper Competition by selecting this option during the POMA submission process.
Selection: The papers will be rated by the POMA Associate Editor corresponding the technical area in which the paper was presented. The top related papers will be evaluated by the POMA Editor, POMA Assistant Editor, and POMA Manuscript Manager and up to five winning papers will be selected. Note that the paper judging will take place concurrently with the ordinary editorial review of a POMA submission; each judged paper will be returned with comments and a publication decision.
• To ensure the article passes the initial quality check, please use either the MS Word or LaTeX manuscript templates and follow all manuscript preparation and submission instructions (https://asa.scitation.org/pma/authors/manuscript). Articles that do not pass the initial quality check are ineligible for the competition. See the submission checklist at the POMA Author Resources page.
• The competition deadline is 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time, 17 June 2024. Any manuscripts received after this will be considered for publication in POMA but will be ineligible for the competition.
• Regardless of the competition outcome, the opportunity to publish an editor-reviewed proceedings paper will enhance your CV/resume and help you take an important intermediate step toward a peer-reviewed publication.
