After the success of the 1st and 2nd international conferences and exhibitions on Underwater Acoustics (UA2013 and UACE2014) as well as the 3rd Underwater Acoustics Conference and Exhibition (UACE2015), the 4th Underwater Acoustics Conference and Exhibition (UACE2017) will be organized in Skiathos island, Greece during the days Sunday 3rd through Friday 8th September, 2017.

Leif Bjorno


The conference is dedicated to the memory of Leif Bjørnø, co-founder and co-chairman of this Conference Series, who passed away unexpectedly on October 2015


Contributions from all areas of underwater acoustics will be included in the 4th Underwater Acoustics Conference and Exhibition. The conference will comprise plenary sessions with invited keynote lectures. A prominent series of structured oral sessions with invited papers given by leading international scientists will be organized by key persons actively engaged themselves in the fronts of research in underwater acoustics. Moreover, most recent research results will be presented in contributed papers forming the basis for regular oral and poster sessions.

All papers presented at the 4th international conference on Underwater Acoustics will be published in proceedings to be made available to all registered participants on the first day of the conference. Moreover, all papers presented at the UACE2017 will be freely accessible on this website like papers from the previous conferences. A competition among younger scientists and graduate students on the presentation of the best papers will traditionally be arranged and best paper awards will be handed over at a ceremony at the end of the conference.

An exhibition by leading international manufacturers of state-of-the-art technologies, equipment and services for underwater acoustic measurements, surveys and control of underwater processes will be arranged in the central area of the conference space.

Up-to-date information on the UACE2017 will currently be  published on this website.

We look forward to welcome you to UACE2017 in September 2017.
