Welcome to ICA 2016 website…


In the ICA2016 it has been reflected the Latin American spirit

The International Congress on Acoustics provides the opportunity once every three years for all those around the world who are working in all areas of Acoustics to meet, discuss and exchange  ideas.

The 22nd International Congress on Acoustics was held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on September 5-9, 2016. The Congress venue was the Catholic University of Argentina in Buenos Aires (UCA).

ICA2016 was organized by the Ibero-american Federation of Acoustics (FIA) and the Argentinian Acousticians Association (AdAA), in cooperation with the Chilean Acoustics Society (SOCHA), under the endorsement of the International Commission for Acoustics (ICA).

Jointly, it was also held the X Ibero-american Federation of Acoustics Congress, incorporating the XIV Argentinean Congress of Acoustics and the XXVI Meeting of the Brazilian Acoustical Society.

The Congress was officially sponsored by the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP), and the National Council of Acoustical Consultants (NCAC). It was also sponsored by several Universities and Professional Institutions of Latin America.

The technical program included plenary and keynote lectures, invited, contributed and electronic poster papers covering all aspects of acoustics. There was an extensive technical exhibition highlighting the latest advances in acoustical products, such as materials, systems and equipment.

Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, is one of the largest cities in the world. It is known as “the Paris of South America” and has a lovely combination of European culture and Latin American spirit.

A large and very enthusiastic team worked together to make ICA2016 a great success!

Buenos Aires appreciates the visit of every congress participant!
