"FROM THE STUDENT COUNCIL"
(Echoes newsletter column describing Paris July 2008 ASA meeting)
Michael Canney
Bonjour! Welcome back from Paris! The joint meeting with our fellow acousticians across the Atlantic at Acoustics ‘08 was a huge success with a record turnout in student participation—over 1,000 abstracts were submitted by students.
The student participation in the meeting was enormous and was a great way to meet students from all over the world who are studying acoustics. In addition, there were several opportunities for students to socialize with each other at the student luncheon set up by the conference organizers as well as by an informal student outing in Paris organized by EAA and ASA students.
An additional highlight of the meeting was the creation of a European counterpart to the ASA Student Council that will provide European students with a forum for organizing activities and resources for fellow students who are doing research in acoustics. We look forward to organizing future events for students at meetings with the EAA Student Council and in helping them establish a support network for students. In addition, the ‘Schola’ section of the EAA website provides information about acoustics classes at various universities in Europe, in case you happen to be pondering a move across the Atlantic in the near future.
We look forward to seeing everyone in Miami in November. The Student Council will again have a students-only “Icebreaker” on the first night of the meeting as well as a student reception on Wednesday night. Informal social outings will also be organized on Monday and Wednesday nights, information about which will be available on the bulletin board at the meeting. Be sure to check out our fantastic website as well for updated information about the Student Council as well as the latest e-zine, which contains additional details about the Miami meeting (www.acosoc.org/student).

Michael Canney is a graduate student at the University of Washington, where he per- forms research on medical ultrasound. He is currently the chair of the ASA student council.
