Current ASA MeetingAcoustics Virtually Everywhere (AVE)
The technical sessions will occur during AVE week, between December 7 – 11, 2020. Many administrative and business committees will meet the previous week from November 30 – December 4, 2020 in order to minimize conflicts with technical sessions. Committees include those such as College of Fellows, ASA Books, and Publication Policy. Detailed schedules for all events, including social events, will be posted as they emerge over the fall.
Technical sessions will begin daily at 9:30 a.m., have a mid-day break, and end about 4:20 pm (meeting times given in Eastern Standard Time). During AVE week, the Keynote Lecture will be presented by James E. West and Ellington West on Monday at 4:30 p.m., the Open Meetings of the Technical Committees will start at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday, while the all-society Plenary will begin Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.
Each lecture will be pre-recorded as a video. Lectures will be grouped topically into webinar sessions with a chair and will include live dialogues with attendees. Digital posters will be produced based choices of templates, each with many panels. Posters include many flexible features, especially multi-media options. Posters will also be grouped topically into sessions. Poster sessions will allow presenters to have live Q&A time. Instructions and tutorial videos from vendors for both lecture and poster sessions will be posted by the end of September.
All lecture videos and poster will be uploaded to our AVE home site. These presentations will then be available on-demand one week before AVE week and then continuously until 30 days afterwards. Session schedules will be posted online to indicate when presenters will be available for dialogue during AVE week.
Based on experiences of other related scientific societies, Acoustics Virtually Everywhere will be an exciting experience before, during and after our meeting week.
