I have a great pleasure to inform the "AA" Readers that the 39th Winter
School on Wave and Quantum Acoustics, organized by Upper Silesian
Division of the Polish Acoustical Society and Institute of Physics at
Silesian University of Technology, is planned at the top of March 2010
in beautiful scenery of Silesian Beskidy Mountains. Many times it was
organized in Wisła, Skoczów, Szczyrk, and Korbielów, and this year it
will be organized again in Szczyrk.
As always, the School has been a place where achievements of various
sections of physical acoustics (especially molecular acoustics, quantum
acoustics, acousto-optics, magnetoacoustics, acoustoelectronics,
photoacoustics, acoustics of solids etc.) are being exchanged. Moreover,
some similar and related topics, for example optoelectronics and thermal
wave methods, will be presented too.
As at previous years the School will be divided on three different, but
complementary, parts - Winter Workshops (WW). Chronologically it will
be: 6th WW on Acoustoelectronics (chairman Prof. Marian Urbanczyk,
Silesian University of Technology, Gliwice), 6th WW on Molecular
Acoustics, Relaxation and Calorimetric Methods (chairwoman Dr. Marzena
Dzida, Silesian University of Technology, Katowice) and 15th WW on
Photoacoustics and Thermal Waves Methods (chairman Prof. Jerzy Bodzenta,
Silesian University of Technology, Gliwice). Moreover, this year we
propose take participation in associated conference - the 4th conference
on Integrated Optics - Sensors, Sensing Structures and Methods (chairman
Prof. Tadeusz Pustelny, Silesian University of Technology, Gliwice).
