49th Winter School on Wave and Quantum Acoustics constituted platforms
for sharing the results and achievements obtained in different branches
of physical acoustics, as molecular acoustics, quantum acoustics,
acousto-optics, magnetoacoustics, photoacoustics, acoustics of solid
state, acoustic emission, and others. Moreover, researches in some
selected topics related to those mentioned above (e.g. optoelectronics,
relaxation processes) were presented during the school.
The conference consisted of the 16th Workshop on Acoustoelectronics and
the 16th Workshop on Molecular Acoustics, Relaxation and Calorimetric
Methods. However, the organizers are opened to organizing workshops on
other subjects in future. We would like to invite scientific centers and
other professional groups to cooperate in organizing workshops on the
subjects of their interests.
XLVIIIth Winter School on Environmental Acoustics and Vibroacoustics was
a forum for all environmental and vibroacoustics fields. Particularly it
was concerned with traffic noise, vibroacoustics of machines, room
acoustics, building acoustics, noise protection and similar problems.
During the Conference, seminars on “Measurement of noise and vibration
at the workplace” and Environmental noise monitoring”, combined with
measurement workshops, were organised in association with SVANTEK.
The Conferences began with the special, joined session dedicated to
celebration of the 15th Jubilee Conference Integrated Optics – Sensors,
Sensing Structures and Methods. In summary, 48 people participated in
Conferences and seminars, presenting 37 lectures, reports and posters.
In this issue one can find abstracts of some lectures and posters, which
were presented during the Conferences.
