Call for Papers

For this conference papers are solicited describing original work in the field of ultrasonics.

The deadline for submission of abstracts will be May 11, 2006.

Poster and oral presentation formats will be used at the symposium.

Prospective authors should note that poster sessions provide an alternative format which allows for greater flexibility and expanded audience interaction.

The abstracts should be submitted in electronic form according to the specific information posted on the conference web page.

Each abstract will receive careful review and evaluation by the Symposium Technical Program Committee. Evaluation criteria will include originality of the work, contribution to the state-of-the-art, and overall interest to the ultrasonics community. Each abstract should be specific, contain clearly identified new material, and include quantitative information or data.

A good abstract must clearly and concisely explain the background, methods and conclusion of the paper. Results of research should be clearly indicated in the abstracts.
