Subject Coverage and Contents

Subject coverage includes all the topics that are typically discussed at the Society's semiannual meetings. At the Meetings, each session is sponsored by one of the Society's Technial Committees: Acoustical Oceanography, Animal Bioacoustics, Architectural Acoustics, Biomedical Ultrasound/Bioresponse to Vibration, Engineering Acoustics, Musical Acoustics, Noise, Physical Acoustics, Psychological and Physiological Acoustics, Signal Processing in Acoustics, Speech Communication, Structural Acoustics and Vibration, and Underwater Acoustics. The Meetings also have sessions which are sponsored by the committees on Education and on Standards. Topics are organized according to the principal committee which sponsored the session at which the paper was presented.

Information for Authors

Proceedings of Meetings on Acoustics (POMA) is an online open-access journal published by the Acoustical Society of America. Each article in POMA corresponds to a paper that has previously been presented at a meeting of the Society or at a meeting that has been cosponsored by the Society. It is open-access, so all articles can be viewed without charge by anyone with the capability of downloading material from the internet.
