FORUM ACUSTICUM 1996, the first Convention of the European Acoustics Association EAA-EEIG, is to be held on the campus of the University of Antwerpia, U.I.A. Belgium from 1 to 4 April, 1996. In order to ensure a high quality convention and a large number of participants, a number of EAA Societies merge their national meetings into the European Convention. One of the main goals ofthis convention will be to foster scientific and cultural exchanges, especially among the young acousticians. EAA is in charge of the overhead organization. The convention is organized by the Belgian Acoustical Association ABAV and the Technological Institute of the Royal Flemish Society of Engineers TI-K VIV.
Local organizing committee:
Chairman: Andre Cops
Pierre Chapelle, Christine Mortelmans, Stefaan Peeters, Hans Roamaen, Paul Sas, Jan Thoen, Gerrit Vermeir, Diane Voet.
Convention activities
The convention include Plenary Lecture Sessions, Structures Sessions, Contributed Papers, Poster Sessions and an Exhibition. The plenary lectures will be presented by internationally well-known scientists and will cover a wide variety of acoustical topics. The Scientific Committee will review the contributed papers from all areas of acoustics in order to arrange them into sessions of related topics. Also panel discussions, information sessions on European issues, workshops and meetings of technical and standards committees are planned.
Convention programme
An advanced convention programme summary will be published in the December issue of ACTA ACOUSTICA and will be distributed also to attendees having expressed their intention to participate. The "Proceedings" of FORUM ACUSTICUM 1996 will be published as the first issue of ACTA ACUSTICA 1996 and will be sent to the members of EAA and handed over to the registered participants on their arrival at the convention.
