Largest Acoustics Meeting In History Expected

Silence of the Owls, Nanoscale Images of Sound Waves, and Shakespearean Acoustics among the highlights

Woodbury, New York February 10, 1999---What talent might insect-eating bats possess that most human musicians would envy? Can the sounds of a person's voice reveal warning signs of suicide? How might the naturally occurring background noise in the Arctic Ocean provide indications of climate change?

These questions are all explored in the science of sound--otherwise known as die Akustik, les acoustiques, acoustics and many other names around the world. Researchers will be gathering at what is expected to be the largest meeting ever devoted exclusively to this scientific discipline: the joint 137th Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America and the 2nd Convention of the European Acoustics Association integrating the 25th German Acoustics DAGA Conference, to be held March 14-19, 1999 at the Technical University of Berlin in Germany.

Approximately 1,950 abstracts of meeting papers have been submitted by acoustical scientists and engineers from 44 countries, including Germany, the United States, the UK, Russia, France, Japan, Brazil and many others. Therefore, this meeting is poised to break the record attendance set by last year's joint meeting of the International Congress on Acoustics and the Acoustical Society in America in Seattle, where 1,600 papers were delivered.

The ASA is the largest scientific organization in the United States devoted to acoustics, with nearly 7000 members. Founded in 1992, EAA provides services to 25 acoustical societies throughout Europe with more than 8500 individual members. One of these member societies is Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Akustik--the German Acoustical Society.
