IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium
Ultrasonics experts from around the world come together at this meeting to advance work in research, development, and applications. The symposium takes place at the Beijing International Convention Center, located in the complex where the 2008 Olympic Games were held in August.
Other topics include bulk acoustic wave sensors, clinical cancer imaging, droplet processing, thin-film and device characterization, and ultrasonic motors. The conference features courses in acoustic microscopy, medical photoacoustic imaging and sensing, and ultrasonic transducers. Jiqing Wang, a professor of acoustics at Tongji University in Shanghai, is scheduled to lecture on the acoustics of traditional Chinese theaters.
Organizers say a banquet on 4 November will include performances of traditional Chinese folk dances and music.
