Application for Membership

     The Acoustical Society of Japan is an interdisciplinary society; the “sound” that our society treats as a research subject has various points of contact with our lives. “Spoken language” is the most fundamental means of communication for human beings, while “music” is a cultural focal point regardless of era and region, and is deeply related to “architectural technology,” i.e. hall design. Early telecommunications and “acoustic equipment” technology was developed exclusively with the goal of remote transmission of voice. Currently, this technology is being developed rapidly, with applications such as image fusion and creating a huge media space on the Internet. Through “ultrasound”, technology to nondestructively measure structures and biological substances has become indispensable for safety and health. At the Acoustical Society of Japan, we are conducting research on the evaluation of “environmental noise”.
     These are just examples of research fields dealt with by the Acoustical Society of Japan. If you join the Acoustical Society, you can participate in activities such as meetings and publications on these various fields. We encourage students, engineers and researchers who are interested in sounds to join the Acoustical Society of Japan by all means.
