Congress will be held at the Kyoto International Conference Hall
(K.I.C.H.) in Kyoto city, the ancient capital of Japan since late in
the 8th century.

Main theme of ICA2004:
   "Acoustical Science and Technology for Quality of Life"

The Congress will address all fields of acoustics as follows:
Acoustical oceanography, acoustic signal processing, animal
bioacoustics, architectural acoustics, engineering acoustics,
electro-acoustics, measurements and standards, musical acoustics,
noise and vibration control, physical acoustics, psychological and
physiological acoustics, speech science and speech communication,
ultrasound and underwater acoustics.

Program of the Congress:
1) Four plenary lectures attractive to all the participants:
    Lawrence A. Crum (University of Washington, USA) "Therapeutic ultrasound"
    Adrianus J.M. Houtsma (USAARL, USA and Technical University Eindhoven,
    The Netherlands) "Low-bit-rate coding of sound and implications for
      modern high-quality audio communication"
    Yang-Hann Kim (KAIST, Korea) "Can we hear the shape of noise source?"
    Yoh'ichi Tohkura (NTT, Japan) "Future of communication science and
      technologies in information society"
2) Around 15 keynote lectures to show the state of the art of current
3) Around 50 organized sessions to cover new and emerging areas in
4) Around 100 sessions to cover all aspects of current acoustics
5) A large exhibition on new products and technologies
