Ottawa, Canada | May 13-17, 2024

The 186th Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America will be held May 13-17, 2024, in Ottawa, Canada. Please visit the ASA webpage for general information about the meeting.

What is a meeting of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA)? ASA meetings are bi-annual week-long conferences that 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 or two attending sessions or social events. See below for student events at the ASA meeting.

Why should I attend an ASA meeting? Attending an ASA meeting is a great way to jump-start or advance your acoustics career, interact with professional acousticians, and to learn more about acoustics in general.

How do I attend an ASA meeting? You can register for the meeting ahead of time or onsite, but pre-registration will get you a discounted registration fee! Being a student member further discounts your fees. Student transportation subsidies are also offered to offset travel costs. You can register for the Ottawa meeting here. Note: If you have pre-registered or are registering on site, you must present your student ID at the registration desk to receive your badge and conference materials.

Virtual attendance options. The Ottawa meeting will be held as an in-person meeting with invited papers in several special sessions presented in hybrid format. Remote attendance at these hybrid special sessions will be possible. Technical committee meetings will also be held in a hybrid format.
