The 1st international conference and exhibition on Underwater Acoustics (UA2013) was held on the Greek island of Corfu in June 2013. This conference became a great success with more than 300 registered participants from 35 countries and with 302 papers presented. 6 companies showed their most advanced underwater acoustical instruments in the exhibition. The conference was based on the recent merger of the two international conferences, the Underwater Acoustic Measurements: Technologies and Results (UAM) conference and the European Conference on Underwater Acoustics (ECUA).
The success of the 1st international conference and exhibition on Underwater Acoustics oblige. It has, therefore, been decided to organize the 2nd international conference and exhibition on Underwater Acoustic (UA2014) on the Greek island of Rhodes during the days Sunday 22nd through Friday 27th June, 2014. The conference venue will be the 5* Rodos Palace Hotel with which an attractive agreement for the conference participants has been settled.
Like in the 1st international conference, contributions from all areas of underwater acoustics will be included in the 2nd international conference on Underwater Acoustics. The conference will comprise plenary sessions with invited keynote lectures. A prominent series of structured oral sessions with invited papers given by leading international scientists will be organized by key persons actively engaged themselves in the fronts of research in underwater acoustics. Moreover, most recent research results will be presented in contributed papers forming the basis for regular oral and poster sessions. All papers presented at the 2nd international conference on Underwater Acoustics will be published in proceedings to be made available to all registered participants on the first day of the conference. Moreover, all papers presented at the 2nd international conference on Underwater Acoustics will be freely accessible on this website like papers from the the 1st international conference on Underwater Acoustics. A competition among younger scientists and graduate students on the presentation of the best papers will traditionally be arranged and best paper awards will be handed over at a ceremony at the end of the conference.
An exhibition by leading international manufacturers of state-of-the-art technologies, equipment and services for underwater acoustic measurements, surveys and control of underwater processes will be arranged in the central area of the conference space.
Up-to-date information on the 2nd international conference and exhibition on Underwater Acoustics will currently be published on this website.
We look forward to welcome you to the 2nd international conference and exhibition on Underwater Acoustics held on Rhodes next June.
