Second Symposium on Piezoelectricity, Acoustic Waves, and Device Applications (SPAWDA 2006)
December 14-17, 2006, Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China

Second Call for Papers


Advances in the research of the theory of Piezoelectricity and Acoustic Waves have provided essential foundation and new opportunities to device technology and have been fostering academic exchanges and interaction in the piezoelectric device industry. With the increased research activities in piezoelectricity and acoustic waves and recent fast growth in piezoelectric devices, we are also facing many technological challenges from real engineering applications and product design and manufacturing. Following the successful SPAWDA 2004 in Ningbo, Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics and the Acoustical Society of China have decided, also with industrial support, to hold the SPAWDA 2006 at Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China from December 14-17. The conference topics include, but not limited to,
Ø Theory of Piezoelectricity;
Ø Bulk and Surface Acoustic Waves;
Ø Piezoelectric Devices;
Ø Piezoelectric Materials;
Ø Ultrasonics;
Ø Manufacturing Technology of Piezoelectric Devices;
Ø Oscillators and Filters。
We cordially invite researchers from universities and laboratories to present their theoretical and experimental findings. We are also interested in hearing from engineers and management of the piezoelectric device industry to talk about new products and business trends, thus creating the opportunities to promote the close cooperation between research and product development.
We also invite our fellow researchers to organize focused sessions.
The SPAWDA 2006 will encourage the participation of students by offering the reduced registration fee.
Please send your abstract of 500 words to Professor Weiqiu Chen by October 31, 2006.
