These sounds -- and the scientific advances related to them -- will only be found at the Acoustics’08 Paris meeting, to be held Monday June 30 through Friday July 4, 2008 at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, France. Scientists and engineers will convene there to present some 3,500 talks and posters related to acoustics.
The science of acoustics is a cross-section of diverse disciplines, including architecture, naval warfare, meteorology, psychology, physics, marine biology, medicine, and music. Acoustics’08 Paris is the world’s largest meeting devoted to this range of topics. It incorporates the 155th Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), the 5th Forum Acusticum of the European Acoustics Association (EAA), and the 9th Congrès Français d’Acoustique of the French Acoustical Society (SFA) integrating the 7th EUROpean conference on NOISE control (euronoise), the 9th European Conference on Underwater Acoustics (ecua) and the 60th Anniversary of the SFA.
Journalists are invited to cover the upcoming meeting either onsite in Paris or online through the meeting's World Wide Press Room. Some preliminary highlights appear below and in the news release that will follow.1) HIGHLIGHTS

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...
