The Acoustical Society of Korea > Introduction / History

Greetings

ear

The Acoustical Society of Korea was established in 1981 and currently has about 3,000 members in the academia and industry. There are 12 academic research groups: Acoustics and Signal Processing Research Group, the Acoustics Communication Research Group, the Electroacoustic Research Group, the Psychology and Music Acoustics Research Group, the New Media Research Group, Underwater Acoustic Research Society, the Physical Sound and Photonics Research Society, the Ultrasound Research Society, the Architectural Acoustic Research Society, the Structural Acoustic Research Society, and the Language and Experimental Voice Research Society, that actively proceeds in research in their own field.
As a result, we publish the Korean Acoustics Society journal six times a year. The academic events we hold include: regular academic conferences, underwater acoustic conferences, signal processing joint conferences, voice communication and signal processing conferences, architectural sound workshops, and hearing aid manager certification system.
