Keith A. Wear received his BA in applied physics from the University of Califor- nia, San Diego, La Jolla, CA. He received his MS and PhD in applied physics from Stanford University, Stanford, CA. He is the acoustics laboratory leader at the Food and Drug Administration, Silver
Spring, MD. He is an associate editor of three journals: The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America; IEEE Transac- tions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control; and Ultrasonic Imaging. He is a fellow of the Acoustical So- ciety of America, the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, and the American Institute for Medical and Bio- logical Engineering.
Brent K. Hoffmeister received his BA in physics from Wabash College, Craw- fordsville, IN, and his MA and PhD in physics from Washington University, St. Louis, MO. He is a professor of physics and chair of the physics department at Rhodes College, Memphis, TN. He is a
member of the Acoustical Society of America and serves on the editorial board of Ultrasonic Imaging.
Pascal Laugier has a PhD in physical acoustics from the University of Paris, France, and holds a permanent position at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (National Center for Scien- tific Research; CNRS) as a research di- rector. He is the head of the Biomedical
Imaging Laboratory at Sorbonne Université. With his team, he has been involved for 25 years in sustained research in the field of bone quantitative ultrasound. He developed the first ultrasound bone imaging densitometer that was marketed in the 2000s. Despite this, his sons had a greater admiration for the actor Will Smith who was selling similar portable bone density scanners in the film The Pursuit of Happyness.
     The ASA's Women in Acoustics Committee was created in 1995 to address the need to foster a supportive atmosphere within the Society and within the scientific community at large, ultimately encouraging women to pursue rewarding and satisfying careers in acoustics.
