IWAVE 2012

The Ninth Swedish-Egyptian Workshop in Sound and Vibration Research

13th - 14th October 2012 Cairo, Egypt

The Acoustical Society of Egypt announces its annual workshop on Research and Education in Acoustics and Vibration. The workshop is intended to promote Sound and Vibration research and education in Egypt through encouraging cooperation among Egyptian scientists, and with scientists around the globe. The workshop is co-sponsored by the European Commission through the TEMPUS and FP7 programmes as well as the Science & Technology Development Fund (STDF) in Egypt. This year, there will be a special session for junior researchers (M.Sc. and Ph.D. students) conducting research in sound and vibration. For the first time, there will be awards for the best presentations of the young researchers.
