23rd International Congress on Acoustics, Sept. 09-13, 2019
integrating 4th EAA Euroregio 2019

Technical Sessions


The conference program will focus on lectures and posters for the various topics covering the field of acoustics which are included in the list below. For every topic, there will also be a "General" session which can be chosen during abstract submission.

For abstract submission, please choose the corresponding topic and session which suit best for your paper. If you have been invited by a session chair, please choose that same session.
In the table below, you will find an overview of all sessions and topics.

Structured Sessions

Besides the "General" sessions, various structured sessions are planned, in which the papers have been initiated by the session chairs (invited papers). Some structured sessions are dedicated to Euroregio. Authors of contributed (not-invited) papers can submit their paper either to a structured session or to the "General" session which exists for every topic. It will be decided together with the session chairs, which papers each session will finally be composed of.
