40th Winter School on Wave and Quantum Acoustics Szczyrk, Poland, February 27 – March 4, 2011


I have a great pleasure to inform the “AA” Readers that the 40th Winter School
on Wave and Quantum Acoustics, organized by Upper Silesian Division of the Polish
Acoustical Society and Institute of Physics – Scientific-Didactics Center at Silesian University
of Technology, is planned at the turn of February and March 2011 in beautiful
scenery of Silesian Beskidy Mountains. Many times it was organized in Wisła, Skoczów,
Szczyrk and Korbielów, and this year it will be organized again in Szczyrk.
As always, the School has been a place where achievements of various sections of
physical acoustics (especially molecular acoustics, quantum acoustics, acousto-optics,
magnetoacoustics, acoustoelectronics, photoacoustics, acoustics of solids etc.) are being
exchanged. Moreover, some similar and related topics, for example optoelectronics and
thermal wave methods, will be presented too.
As at the previous years, the School will be divided into three different, but complementary,
parts – Winter Workshops (WW). Chronologically it will be: 7th WW on
Acoustoelectronics (chairman Prof. Marian Urbanczyk, Silesian University of Technology,
Gliwice), 7th WW on Molecular Acoustics, Relaxation and Calorimetric Methods
(chairwoman Dr. Marzena Dzida, Silesian University, Katowice) and 16th WW on Photoacoustics
and Thermal Waves Methods (chairman Prof. Jerzy Bodzenta, Silesian University
of Technology, Gliwice). Moreover, this year we propose to participate in associated
conference – the 5th Conference on Integrated Optics – Sensors, Sensing Structures
and Methods (chairman Prof. Tadeusz Pustelny, Silesian University of Technology, Gliwice).
