The 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th international conference and exhibition on Underwater Acoustics were held on the Greek islands of Corfu (June 2013), Rhodes (June 2014), Crete (June 2015) and Skiathos (2017). These conferences became very successful, each with more than 300 registered participants from more than 35 countries and with over 300 papers presented. Several companies showed their most advanced underwater acoustical instruments in the exhibition.

    The 5th international conference and exhibition on Underwater Acoustics will take place in Hersonissos, Crete  from June 30 to July 5, 2019.

    In Memoriam Leif Bjørnø

    The UACE2017 conference was dedicated to the memory of Leif Bjørnø, co-founder and co-chairman of this Conference Series, who passed away unexpectedly on October 2015. Leif Bjorno held the position of Professor at the Department of Industrial Acoustics (Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Denmark) for over 22 years. He left the University in 2000 due to his commitments as a serving member or chairman of the board of directors or trustees of several institutions in Denmark and abroad.Leif’s activities were always internationally focused and centered on translational applications of science and technology. His experience included industrial applications of acoustics, especially in the field of machinery noise, mathematical models describing propagation of acoustic waves in different media, signal processing, development of ultrasound measurement devices, and underwater- and nonlinear- acoustics. He authored or co-authored over 400 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals, professional magazines, conference proceedings and text-books.
