Planting Seeds of Collaboration – Travel Award and Special Session
For the second year in a row, the Psychological and Physiological Acoustics Technical Committee will fund 6 students/post-docs to attend and present at the 173rd ASA Meeting in Boston, MA (25-27 June 2017). Award recipients will be invited to present their research in a special session titled “Acoustics outreach to budding scientists: Planting seeds for future clinical and physiological collaborations.” Each awardee will receive $750 US for travel expenses and will be introduced to several P&P mentors at the meeting. This award is intended to promote translational research and to expose clinical and physiological researchers to the Acoustical Society.
Applications are due on December 5, 2016. Applications must include a cover letter, an abstract for a podium presentation (limit 200 words), a letter of recommendation, and a current CV. Click here for a copy of the application. Best of luck to all applicants!
The William and Christine Hartmann Prize in Auditory Neuroscience was established in 2011 through a generous donation by Bill and Chris Hartmann to the Acoustical Society of America to recognize and honor research that links auditory physiology with auditory perception or behavior in humans or other animals. The fourth prize was awarded at the 171st meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in Salt Lake City (23-27 May 2016) to Alan R. Palmer, who delivered the Hartmann Auditory Neuroscience Prize Lecture, entitled “Bridging the chasm: Animal physiology and human psychophysics.”
NOTE: The award is annual and the nomination application will be posted in Summer 2016. Click here for more information.
The Silver Medal is presented to individuals, without age limitation, for contributions to the advancement of science, engineering, or human welfare through the application of acoustic principles, or through research accomplishments in acoustics. Roy Patterson was awarded the ASA Silver Medal Award at the 170th ASA Meeting in Jacksonville, Florida (2-6 November 2015) for his great contributions to the field of Psychological and Physiological Acoustics. Presentation of the award at the fall meeting enabled another great from the P&P Technical Committee, Dave Green, to attend the award ceremony. The ceremony took place on Wednesday, 4 November. Congratulations to Roy Patterson for winning the ASA Silver Medal Award!
