Dear Colleagues,

The 9th International Conference on Theoretical and Computational Acoustics (ICTCA 2009) will take place from 7th to 11th September, 2009, at the Dresden International Congress Center.
It will be a forum for active researchers from different areas of science related to acoustics, seismics and wave propagation in general,
to discuss state-of-the-art developments and results in their area and also to stimulate future research in the fields of:

- Computational aero-, seismo-, and ocean-acoustics, hydroacoustics, bioengineering acoustics, nonlinear acoustics, structural vibrations and acoustics;
- Multidimensional wave propagation modelling: grid methods (spectral, FD, FEM, FV, BIE, BEM, etc), particle and meshless methods, ray techniques, symbolic methods, ODE methods;
- Wave propagation in borehole, rocks, fluid-solid interfaces, anisotropic media, viscoelastic, porous and fractured media, as well as random media;
- Solution methods for large-scale problems (iterative solvers for indefinite systems, multi-frequency methods, etc.);
- Mid-frequency range, coupling of deterministic and statistic methods;
- Analysis of uncertainties, probabilistic and possibilistic approaches;
- Computational and experimental seismology;
- Multidimensional wave propagation modelling;
- Shallow water acoustics and environmental/bottom parameter extraction;
- Random Wave Fields and Ambient Noise;
- Environmental noise modelling;
- Ultrasonic wave propagation and nondestructive testing;
- Scattering and Inverse Problems in acoustics;
- Exploring the ocean and the sea-bed with acoustics;
- Exploring earth structure from the interpretation and modelling of earthquake data;
- Supercomputing and parallel methods;
- Exterior problems: absorbing boundary conditions, infinite elements, PML;
- Real applications, experimental results and signal processing techniques;

You are invited to present a paper in this Conference.
The Conference is also open to proposals for the organization of special sessions.
If you wish to propose a special session, please contact the Chairman of the Organizing Committee, Dr. Steffen Marburg, by
January 15, 2009.

Please check this website regularly for updated information.

We look forward to seeing you at ICTCA 2009.
With our best Regards,

The Conference Organizing Committee
