Physical Acoustics Summer School
PASS 2022

The 2022 Physical Acoustics Summer School, PASS 2022, will be held at The Inn at Ole Miss Hotel & Conference Center on the Oxford campus of The University of Mississippi, with arrival on June 5 and departure on June 10, 2022.

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. Participation, including Students, Lecturers, and Discussion Leaders, is limited to fifty. Full-time participation is required.

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

Lecturers and Discussion Leaders: The PASS Organizing Committee selects approximately eight lecture topics and appropriate Lecturers and Discussion Leaders.

Costs: Participants provide their own transportation. Oxford is about 80 miles from Memphis International Airport (MEM). Some free van transportation will be available from MEM to UM. There is a $250 Student Registration Fee.

Room & Board: Room and board, based on standard multiple-occupancy for Students, will be supported by sponsors.

Program: Program information, including a Preliminary Schedule and application forms, will be available on the web page (below) at the National Center for Physical Acoustics (NCPA) at The University of Mississippi.

Application Deadline: Complete applications for the 2022 Physical Acoustics Summer School must be received no later than Tuesday, February 15, 2022.

Applications: All participants must have a completed Application Form on file. Students must also provide a transcript and one professional reference letter. Copies of the Announcement, Application Form, and Preliminary Schedule will be available at The initial contact is Ms. Elizabeth Tettleton Mason.
