The International Symposia on Long Range Sound Propagation are held every two years alternately between the US and Europe. The goals of the symposia are to exchange information on current research in sound propagation in the atmosphere ranging from infrasound to low frequency audible sound.  Presentations on all aspects of long range sound propagation are welcome including wave propagation, source modeling, signal detection and analysis and instrumentation. Focuses have included meteorological effects on signal propagation, acoustics for atmospheric sounding, and acoustic monitoring of man-made and natural hazards.

This year the LRSP will be held on September 20 and 21 in Oxford, Mississippi on the campus of the University of Mississippi and will be hosted by the National Center for Physical Acoustics (NCPA).  Registration can be done online at by accessing:
