the scientific and organizing committees are pleased to invite all of you to attend AIA-DAGA 2013, the joint Conference on Acoustics planned from 18th to 21st March 2013 in Merano, one of the most beautiful towns in Alto Adige. All the acousticians from Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and any other country are welcome to participate.
AIA-DAGA 2013, which has been acknowledged as Euroregio event from the European Acoustics Association (EAA), includes the 39th annual congress of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Akustik (DEGA) and the 40th annual congress of the Associazione Italiana di Acustica (AIA). The collaborations by the Österreichische Gesellschaft für Akustik (AAA), the Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Akustik (SGA-SSA), the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft DPG, the Informationstechnische Gesellschaft ITG im VDE, NALS im DIN und VDI and of the Environmental Protection Agency - Autonomous Province of Bozen/Bolzano are also greatly appreciated.
This joint Conference is the fifth in the series, after Austria in 1990, Switzerland in 1998, France in 2004 and Netherlands in 2009, which were all successful events. Just on the wake of these successes, AIA-DAGA 2013 organizers are making every effort to ensure the conditions for an interesting and exciting event. Six keynote lectures will provide a review of recent developments on hot topics as well as some thoughts about future trends. This Conference, however, aims at contributing not only to the technical and scientific progress on acoustics, but also to improve the cooperation between people and languages of neighbour countries, going on with the joint experiences acquired at international level.
With these purposes in mind, AIA-DAGA 2013 organizers look forward to meeting all of you this year in Italy.
Arrivederci a Merano.
