Organizing Committee LXVII OSA

The annual Open Seminar on Acoustics is the largest conference in Poland gathering leading Polish acoustics for over sixty years. It is organized cyclically by subsequent divisions of the Polish Acoustic Society - in 2020 by the Cracow Division.

The Conference presents works from all fields of acoustics. The aim of the conference is to exchange scientific experience in the field of acoustics, promote science and integrate specialists from various fields related to acoustics. The Conference plays an integrating role for the environment of Polish acoustics as well as more and more often foreign ones. This enables the exchange of ideas, implementation of new research techniques and opening of new application areas.

A special session will be organized to celebrate the International Year of Sound 2020.

Alongside the scientific conference, there will be an exhibition offering a forum for contacts and exchange between theory and practice. The Conference will traditionally be accompanied by social events (gala dinner, local trip).

In 2020, the OSA 2020 Conference will be held at the Hotel Bachledówka, Czerwienne - Bachledówka 353, 34-407 Ciche, www.bachledowka.pl

We are convinced that the Conference will become an inspiration to exchange knowledge, take on new research challenges, broaden scientific horizons, establish cooperation and raise the level of innovation and applicability of conducted research.

We warmly invite you to join us for the Conference and we hope that the time spent together will be well used by you.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee OSA2020
