AT Collections – Technical Committees

The thirteen technical committees of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) provide the focus for members’ technical interests. The technical committees play an important role in arranging technical sessions for the meetings promoting new developments in their respective fields, representing the Society in joint sponsorship of meetings with other organizations, and assuming responsibility for their particular coverage of subject matter in publications of the Society.


These Sound Perspectives essays from Acoustics Today provide insight into the interests of members of each technical committee.

Musical Acoustics – Thomas R. Moore
