What is a Technical Specialty Group?
Technical Specialty Groups are established to organize technical sessions at meetings of the Society in new or evolving acoustical areas not within the scopes of the existing Technical Committees for fields of technical interest which may be smaller than those of the usual Technical Committees.
A Technical Specialty Group is expected to organize at least one technical session each year in a technical area within its scope, and may cosponsor additional sessions in cooperation with Technical Committees, other Technical Specialty Groups or Interdisciplinary Technical Groups. The Group is not eligible for technical area awards of the Society, but may encourage the timely preparation and submission of dossiers on candidates for Fellowship of the Society. Other activities and responsibilities of Technical Specialty Groups, including the submission of proposals for technical initiatives and Distinguished Lectures shall be similar to those of Technical Committees.
The Technical Specialty Group on Computational Acoustics was established by the ASA Executive Council in May 2018.
