International Commission for Acoustics (ICA)

International Commission for Acoustics (ICA)

The International Commission on Acoustics (ICA) was instituted in 1951 as a subcommittee to the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP). New Statutes were adopted by the International Commission on Acoustics in Antwerp 1996 March 31 and were approved by the IUPAP General Assembly in Uppsala Sweden 1996 September 20. An information letter explaining the proposed changes to the status of the commission was circulated to acoustical societies 1996 May 10. The new ICA held its first General Assembly 1998 June 25 during the 16th Congress in Seattle where the By-laws of the new organization were adopted by the Member Societies. The Commission then became known as the International Commission for Acoustics. The ICA has also applied to become an Affiliated Commission of the International Union of Applied and Theoretical Mechanics(IUTAM). A motion in favor of Affiliation was carried unanimously at the IUTAM General Assembly Meeting held at the University of Stuttgart 1998 August 28-30. The ICA became a Scientific Associate of the International Council for Science ICSU in 2006.

An article further explaining the ICA is available here. This is available with permission from Acoustical Society of America where it was first published in Acoustics Today, 3(3), 2007.

The purpose of the International Commission for Acoustics (ICA), is to promote international development and collaboration in all fields of acoustics including research, development, education, and standardisation.

Means for the Commission to fulfill its mission are:

i to maintain close contacts with national and regional acoustical societies and associations as well as other relevant professional organisations and seek consensus in matters of mutual interest; ii to provide an information service on societies, congresses, symposia, etc., research and education organisations in the field of acoustics; iii to take a pro- active role in co-ordinating the main international meetings within acoustics.
to convene the International Congresses on Acoustics in accordance with the Commission's guidelines and to act as the International Advisory Committee for these congresses.
to sponsor or co-sponsor other topical and special international conferences normally in close cooperation with national and/or regional organisations and to give financial support (grants or guarantees), as a grant to organising committees for such meetings or as a travel grant to participants.

Sociedad Española de Acústica – SEA

Sociedad Española de Acústica – SEA

La Sociedad Española de Acústica –SEA– es una asociación sin ánimo de lucro creada el 11 de abril de 1969 de acuerdo con la Ley de Asociaciones del Ministerio del Interior.

Sus objetivos principales son los siguientes:

Fomentar el progreso de la Acústica en sus distintos campos, aspectos y aplicaciones mediante el estudio, la información, la difusión y el asesoramiento.
Colaborar al desarrollo de la investigación acústica en la industria y coadyuvar al progreso de las técnicas.
Cooperar en el desarrollo de la cultura musical, promoviendo el estudio y la difusión de recomendaciones que contribuyan a la ampliación de conocimientos y a perfeccionar las técnicas de grabación, reproducción y transmisión del sonido.
Velar por la protección de las personas y de la colectividad contra ruidos y niveles sonoros elevados, asesorando a los organismos correspondientes sobre métodos idóneos para reducir aquéllos mediante la confección de recomendaciones y la colaboración en la redacción de normas.
Promover el intercambio de manifestaciones, trabajos y experiencias entre sus miembros y entre la colectividad acústica nacional e internacional.
Promocionar la Calidad Total en las instalaciones acústicas.

Para conseguir estos objetivos, la SEA organiza diversas actividades tales como congresos, coloquios, cursos, seminarios, conferencias, mesas redondas y demás actuaciones acordes con sus fines, disponiendo de un Servicio de Información y de un medio de difusión propio –Revista de Acústica– que alcanza el más amplio contenido para el mejor logro de los objetivos institucionales.
