TECHNICAL PROGRAM AND SPECIAL SESSIONS

Contributed papers are welcome in all branches of acoustics. The technical program will consist of lecture and poster sessions. Technical sessions will be scheduled Monday through Friday, 23-27 May 2022.

Every effort will be made to schedule contributed abstracts in accordance with author and Organizing Committee preferences. Assignments will take into account: a) author preference, b) program balance, and c) Technical Committee instructions. Abstracts will be rejected if they do not comply with the abstract submission guidelines and submission instructions.

Note that some Technical Committees do not schedule poster sessions. Authors should be prepared to accept assignment to lecture or poster sessions.

Special sessions described below are planned for the meeting. Authors of invited papers must indicate the title of the special session in which they have been invited to participate when the abstract is submitted. Authors of contributed papers have the option to request placement of their abstracts in these sessions. If no special session placement is requested, contributed papers will be scheduled in sessions with abstracts of similar technical content.

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

● An abstract of not more than 200 words is required for each paper, whether invited or contributed. All abstracts must be submitted by 24 January 2022. This deadline will be strictly enforced.

● If no special session placement is requested, contributed papers will be scheduled in sessions with abstracts of similar technical content.
● Submitted abstracts will not necessarily be accepted for the meeting.

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.
