45th Scandinavian Symposium on Physical Acoustics

Online, January 31 – February 1, 2022

The Norwegian Physical Society announces that the 45th symposium in the series will again be held online due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. We encourage you to participate, and to distribute this invitation to others who may be interested in joining this symposium!

About the symposium

As always, the theme will be physical acoustics, with an emphasis on ultrasound, marine acoustics, nonlinear acoustics, and sound propagation in general, with applications in technology, medicine, fisheries, environmental monitoring, and defense.

The main purpose of these symposia is to strengthen contacts and exchange information between acoustics groups in Scandinavia. However, the symposium is held in English, and non-Scandinavian participants are also very welcome. While the 45th symposium is held online instead of in person, we still hope and expect to have the same informal tone as always.


As the symposium has been moved online due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s program is shortened to two days. The symposium will open on Monday morning and end on Tuesday afternoon. Throughout the program, we will have breaks for coffee and conversation. The full program will be announced soon.

We invite our participants to contribute 15-minute talks, though doing so is not mandatory. Furthermore, fresh master and PhD students are invited to give a 3-minute presentation of their project in a special session. Typically, the symposium attracts around 50 participants, holding about 30 talks throughout the five sessions.


The symposium will be held online, via the Zoom platform. Every registered participant will receive a link to join well ahead of time. We ask all participants to ensure that they have the most recent version of Zoom installed before joining the Symposium. Participants who want to familiarise themselves with Zoom before the symposium are also welcome for a special ‘test run’ session, the time of which will be announced soon.


There is no registration fee. While registration for presenters closed on December 17 2021, you can still register as a participant without a presentation. Please use the registration form to provide your email, name, and affiliation.
