2. In your email include:

Your name

Conference: Phononics 2019

Date of arrival

Date of departure

Please write: "I am with Phononics 2019 Conference and am requesting the discounted rate of $119/night + tax.

3. She will email you directly to book the hotel room if there is availability.

If you have any questions or any issues, please contact Alaina G. Levine, Phononics 2019 Conference Manager, or 1 520 240 6538 (phone or whatsapp).
The discounted rate is $119/night + tax.

Dorms! (10 May 2019) We also still have a limited number of dorm rooms available on the campus of The University of Arizona at a rate of $45/night, based on double occupancy.

In the body of your email include: check in and check out dates, gender (for room assignment), accessibility needs.

About the conference:

Phononics 2019 is the fifth conference dedicated to analysis and manipulation of phonons (vibrations in solids), connecting researchers interested in phononic crystals, acoustic/thermal metamaterials, wave propagation in periodic structures, nano-scale phonon transport, and optomechanics and phonon coupling.

More specifically, the conference scientific focus will be on the following nine central themes underlying current research in the field of phononics:

1.         Phononic Crystal Design and Fabrication

2.         Acoustic Metamaterial Design and Fabrication

3.         Applications of Phononic Crystals and Acoustic Metamaterials

4.         Temporally modulated Phononic Crystals and Acoustic Metamaterials

5.         Topological Acoustics and Phononics

6.         Nonlinear Phononic Crystals and Acoustic Metamaterials

7.         Thermal Phonons

8.         Optomechanics and Phonon Coupling

9.       Phononic Crystals and Acoustic Metamaterials in Biology

The conference will also address workforce training and preparedness needed to contribute to an emerging U.S. economy leveraging advanced materials. This will be done through evening mini-lectures and workshops in areas such as additive manufacturing, computational methods, career planning for young researchers, and topological acoustics and its potential applications.




Early Bird Registration Deadline Extension
