Symposia sponsored by the ICA/ASA

One of the means by which the ICA fulfills its mission is to sponsor or co-sponsor other topical and special international conferences. This is normally done in close cooperation with national and/or regional organisations and to give financial support (grants or guarantees), as a grant to organising committees for such meetings or as a travel grant to participants.

Organisers will be asked to complete a brief report on their symposium for posting on this webpage, using the following report form.

The following Specialty Symposia on Acoustics have been approved for sponsorship by the International Commission for Acoustics:
