I have the great pleasure of inviting you to participate in the 49th Winter School on Wave and Quantum Acoustics. The school is organized by the Upper Silesian Division of the Polish Acoustical Society in cooperation with the Committee of Acoustics of the Polish Academy of Sciences. As previously, the Winter School will be divided into workshops devoted to selected topics. I hope that this Winter School will be an important scientific event both for regular participants and those who participate occasionally.
Traditionally, the School constitutes a platform for sharing the results and achievements obtained in different branches of physical acoustics (e.g. molecular acoustics, quantum acoustics, acousto-optics, magnetoacoustics, photoacoustics, acoustics of solid state etc.). Moreover, researches in some selected topics related to those mentioned above (e.g. optoelectronics, relaxation processes) will also be presented during the school.
We are going to organise Winter Schools on Wave and Quantum Acoustics regurarly as previously - however, there is a possibility of organizing workshops on other subjects in the future. We would like to invite scientific centers and groups to cooperate in organizing workshops on the subjects of their interests.
Once again we have endeavored to organize this conference keeping in mind that it is an important event for acousticians, opticians, physicists, chemists and other Polish and foreign scientists. We hope that the scope and programme of the this conference will be interesting for you and you will decide to join us in Szczyrk.
On behalf of the organizers:
