Date:10/18/2011

The latest news and discoveries from the science of sound will be featured at the 162nd meeting of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) held October 31 November 4, 2011, at the Town and Country Hotel in San Diego, Calif. Experts in acoustics will present research spanning a diverse array of disciplines, including medicine, music, speech communication, noise, and marine ecology.

Journalists are invited to attend the meeting free of charge. Registration information is at the end of this release. Lay-language versions of more than 50 presentations will be available at the ASA's Worldwide Press Room (www.acoustics.org) approximately one week before the meeting.

Webcast: News Briefing Meeting Highlights: Journalists working remotely are invited to participate in a webcast on Monday, October 31, at 11 a.m. EDT (8 a.m. PDT). Scientists will present brief summaries of their research and answer questions. An agenda and list of presenters will be released shortly. Reporters on site are invited to participate in person.
