UIA Sound Solutions Meeting

The Ultrasonics Industry Association (UIA) annual workshop – Sound Solutions – is taking place during the IEEE IUS this year in Glasgow concurrently alongside the Short Courses in Alsh 1 & 2 at the SEC on Sunday 6th October from 13.00 – 18.00.

The event will bring together a programme of speakers, discussions and networking across academic research and industrial applications on the topic of ultrasonics in surgery and therapy. The first part of the programme aims to showcase some of the UKs latest research, with three invited speakers. A structured networking session will follow. The final part of the programme will be more participative and interactive in a relaxed format, with the speakers inviting discussions on three selected topics.

The full programme will be available here soon. You can find out more about the UIA here

Registration for Sound solutions is via the UIA website here.
