Technical Program


The Congress will feature a high-standard technical program including plenary, distinguished, contributed and poster papers. Papers will cover all aspects of acoustics.

The ICA2013 will use a presentation management system to facilitate the running of technical sessions. Once your talk has been prepared, whether two months before the Congress or on the day of your presentation, it may be uploaded, from anywhere in the world. An Audio/Video Preview room will be available at the Palais des congrès during the Congress for you to review your presentation and make modifications. Authors will not be able to use their personal laptops for their presentations. Use of the presentation management system eliminates the disruption caused by switching computers in the middle of a session. Similarly, authors will not be able to upload their presentations from a USB drive during their technical session.

Plenary Lectures

A special feature of the ICA Congress will be the Plenary Lectures. Each day will start off with a plenary lecture by an eminent acoustician on a topic of interest to all. Please meet our Plenary Lecturers. Click on the names to bring up a biographical sketch.


Many people are contributing to the successful organization of the Technical Program. See Technical Program Organizers for the listing.

The Call for Papers was sent out by the Acoustical Society of America in October 2012 to ASA members, including posting on the ASA website. In parallel, all member Societies of the ICA received a notification that they could pass on to their members.

If you would like to participate in the technical program, please take note of the following important point:

  • A Proceedings containing papers for each presentation will be published in Proceedings of Meetings on Acoustics (POMA), the ASA's online proceedings journal. A 200-word abstract must be submitted first. The deadline for submission was 15 November 2012. The submission website is now closed.
  • A manuscript (2-8 pages) must be submitted for each paper to be presented at the meeting (whether lecture style or poster) and for publication in the Proceedings. If a manuscript is not received by 22 January 2013, the abstract will not be scheduled for presentation nor will it be published in the meeting program. The POMA submission site is no longer accepting manuscripts for ICA 2013.
  • Preregistration is required from the corresponding author of each abstract. The preregistration fee must be received by 22 January 2013. Multiple submissions are permitted, but a $100 publication fee will be charged for each additional paper submitted by the same corresponding author.
