Symposium Program and Abstract Books

Mesage from General Chair, Dr. Keith Wear

The IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium (IUS) has served for many decades as an outstanding forum for researchers to present new results and learn about recent advances in 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.

This year, we received 1319 abstracts which is the most in the history of the IUS. The Technical Program Committee selected 945 papers for oral and poster presentations. I thank Professor Georg Schmitz, the Technical Program Chair, who led the organization of the symposium's technical presentations. The oral presentations include 21 invited papers highlighting emerging technologies or overviews of key areas. The poster presentations include 17 student poster finalists competing for the Student Paper Awards. Presentations cover the five areas of focus for this meeting:

  • Medical Ultrasonics
  • Sensors, NDE & Industrial Applications
  • Physical Acoustics
  • Microacoustics - SAW, FBAR & MEMS
  • Transducers & Transducer Materials

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

The Symposium Program includes the full schedule of presentations with times and locations. The Abstract Book includes the abstracts of all submitted papers.
