As of March, 2012

2012 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium, October 7-10, 2012, Dresden, Germany


Final Call for Papers - Abstract Deadline: May 4th, 2012


The Ultrasonics Symposium returns to Germany, now to Dresden from October 07 - 10, 2012. The conference will be held at the International Congress Center, situated at the margin of the Elbe river and close to the historical center of Dresden. The site provides both a great venue for our conference and unparalleled access to all that Dresden has to offer.

 

Papers are solicited for this conference describing original work in the field of ultrasonics. 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 deadline for submission of abstracts is May 04, 2012. The abstracts should be submitted in electronic form according to the specific information posted on the conference web page. Additional conference information can be found at the Symposium web site: http://ewh.ieee.org/conf/ius_2012. 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.

 

Authors are required to concisely divide their abstract into three sections: I. Background, Motivation and Objective; II. Statement of Contribution/Methods; III. Results/Discussion. In these three sections the authors must clearly and concisely explain the motivation and background, the contribution of the work and methods, and the results and conclusions of the paper. Papers are solicited from the following subject classifications:

Message from the General Chair


Every year when the worldwide IEEE ultrasonics family comes together, the local surroundings create a specific atmosphere. In Dresden you will feel the special ambience of our venue: A unique city filled with theaters, museums, collections and music halls with international recognition ideally frames our congress. Tradition and innovation merge to a creative spirit that gives wings to both art & culture, and - in our case - to research & science.

 

The Dresden conference will be a platform to present, communicate and discuss new ideas, challenges, and scientific results in the rich field of ultrasonics. In good tradition all topic areas including medical ultrasound, physical acoustics, nondestructive testing, microacoustics, sensors and actuators, new materials, functional principles, and technologies will be represented.

 

We will draw special attention to the conference within Dresden with its thriving research landscape of science and technology and expect a high attendance from Germany and throughout Europe.

 

It is noteworthy, that Dresden will be the first city from a  former Eastern Bloc state to organize and host the Ultrasonics Symposium. Needless to say, that this conference is a reward of the peaceful revolution in 1989. The Dresden Frauenkirche as a famous work of architecture that has become a symbol of the worldwide support and friendship which facilitated its rebuild only a few years ago will provide a wonderful venue for us to come together and enjoy music.

 

Come to Dresden! Bring your colleagues, your friends, your spouses with you!
