ASA meetings bring together students, researchers, and professionals to share knowledge and exchange ideas on acoustics both in the USA and worldwide. Students are welcome to attend the entire meeting, or just spend a day attending sessions or social events.
This is a great way to jump-start or advance your acoustics career, interact with professional acousticians, and to learn more about acoustics in general.
Discounted meeting pre-registration (see below) offered to students! Student transportation subsidies are also offered to offset travel costs. Just complete the following by the listed dates and you’re in! Registration at this meeting for students is $250. Save $100 by becoming a student member of ASA, and another $100 by registering your attendance by November 6.
