The annual Anglo-French Physical Acoustics Conference (AFPAC) provides a forum in which the current research activity in physical acoustics and ultrasonics in the UK and France is reviewed.
The scope for this conference is intentionally wide so as to encourage cross-fertilisation of ideas across different application areas in the field of Physical Acoustics. Topics include, but are not limited to: theoretical developments (all methods); experimental measurements; transduction; linear or nonlinear elastic or acoustic (bulk, surface, guided) wave radiation, propagation, scattering and reception; application to material characterization, biomedical ultrasound, imaging (nondestructive testing, medical, underwater, seismology), SAW in electronic devices etc.
Contributions for presentation are invited in all relevant topics and should be submitted online. Authors with an accepted presentation are invited to submit a paper after the conference, for publication in the Journal of Physics: Conference Series, a free open-access peer-reviewed online journal. The proceedings are published by IOP Publishing and past papers from AFPAC can be found online at http://iopscience.iop.org/1742-6596/353/1
A further announcement will be made which will include information on abstract submission, registration, travel and accommodation.
