General Chair Message

Keith Wear

The IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium has served for many decades as an outstanding forum for researchers to present new results and learn about recent advances in medical and industrial ultrasonics. Over a thousand scientists and engineers attended each of three recent symposia in Chicago (2014), Taipei (2015), and Tours (2016). We anticipate another successful symposium in Washington, D.C. in 2017.

I extend sincere thanks to the IEEE, the IEEE UFFC Society, the Organizing Committee and the Technical Program Committee for making this event possible.
