Technical Program → Organizers

There are many people, listed here, contributing to the organizing of the technical program for ICA 2013. The Technical Program Chair bears overall responsibility for the technical program. A Scientific Advisory Committee was assembled to provide guidance and support. This committee is composed of representatives from the various technical committees of the ASA, from the CAA, and from the international community.

Papers will be organized by technical field into sessions. Some sessions will be "contributed" sessions, formed by putting together contributed papers in related technical areas. Other sessions will be "special" or structured sessions: these will be arranged by an organizer who will invite key authors to present talks in a specific technical area. Click here to jump ahead to the list of special sessions and their organizers. CAA Technical Program Coordinators encouraged the organizing of special sessions from the Canadian acoustical community.

Representatives from the Technical Committees of the Acoustical Society of America and from the Canadian Acoustical Association met 15-16 February 2013 to assemble the final technical program. This is the Technical Program Committee, chaired by the Technical Program Chair

Listed on a separate webpage are the people contributing to the General Organization of ICA 2013.
