ASA School 2022 is a two-day course immediately preceding the ASA spring meeting in Denver.  The program includes presentations by prominent acousticians, roundtables, demonstrations, and discussion groups to expand on the lecture materials and to foster communication across disciplines and technical areas of acoustics. Social events, including a Friday evening welcome reception, two lunches, and Saturday evening dinner, provide an informal atmosphere for social exchange and further discussions.
