2014 Physical Acoustics Summer School – PASS 2014

The 2014 Physical Acoustics Summer School, PASS 2014, will be convened at Daniels Summit Lodge, Heber City Utah, south of Salt Lake City Utah and Park City Utah, with arrival on 28 May and departure on 3 June 2014.   This is a change of venue from the 2012 Physical Acoustics Summer School.

Participation, including Students, Lecturers, and Discussion Leaders, is limited to fifty. Full-time participation of all is required. Part-timers and visitors are not permitted.

PURPOSE: The purpose of the Summer School is to bring graduate Students, distinguished Lecturers, and Discussion Leaders together to discuss a wide variety of subjects in physical acoustics.  PASS will give students opportunities to meet experts and discuss topics they would not ordinarily encounter in their own colleges and universities.

STUDENTS: The focus of PASS is on intermediate and advanced graduate students.

LECTURERS AND DISCUSSION LEADERS: The Organizing Committee will select approximately eight lecture topics and appropriate Lecturers and Discussion Leaders.

COSTS: Participants provide their own transportation to and from Salt Lake City Airport (SLC), and some van travel assistance from/to SLC will be available. There is a $200 Student Registration Fee.  The other costs of participation, including room and board, based multiple-occupancy for Students, will be paid by sponsors.
