The Technical Committee on Signal Processing in Acoustics will sponsor the 15th Gallery of Acoustics at the Acoustical Society of America meeting in Salt Lake City, UT. Its purpose is to enhance ASA meetings by providing a setting for researchers to display their work to all meeting attendees in a forum emphasizing the diversity, interdisciplinary, and artistic nature of acoustics. The Gallery of Acoustics provides a means by which we can all share and appreciate the natural beauty, aesthetic, and artistic appeal of acoustic phenomena: This is a forum where science meets art. The Gallery at Salt Lake City will be unique relative to previous Galleries, in that only images (posters, pictures, etc.) will be accepted. While text in the image is not prohibited, the emphasis on the artistic nature of the Gallery suggests that text be discouraged; the Gallery is more of a museum than a poster session. A printed copy of the title and description will be provided and attached near the accepted submissions at the meeting.
In order to submit an image, send a digital copy of the image to Michael Muhlestein (email given below). The top four applicants will be notified prior to the meeting and asked to bring the full-sized image to Salt Lake City for presentation. The images should fit on a 4 ft. by 4 ft. portion of a board, which will be provided to pin the image to. An easel may also be available upon prior request to Michael Muhlestein. Entries must be accompanied by all authors’ names and affiliations, a title, a brief description of the entry and importance or interest of the entry (no more than 200 words), and statement of permission to display the entry at the meeting. Please indicate the primary point of contact. The meeting attendees will vote on the entries on the basis of aesthetic/artistic appeal, ability to convey and exchange information, and originality. A cash prize of USD $400 and $200 will be awarded to the winning and first runner-up entries, respectively. The deadline to submit an image is 31 March 2016.
Entries, questions, and all other communications regarding the Gallery should be directed to: Michael B. Muhlestein Applied Research Laboratories 10000 Burnet Rd. Austin, Texas 78758 T: (801) 755-8419
