The Board of the EAA is glad to announce the nomination of a new Editor in Chief our Journal “Acta Acustica” by May 1st : Univ.-Prof. Dr. techn. Dr. h.c. Manfred Kaltenbacher.

Manfred is presently an associate editor of AA, he possesses a good knowledge of acoustics and acousticians and has been recently elected President of the Austrian Acoustics Association. Manfred is Head of Technical Acoustics at the Institute of Mechanics and Mechatronics/E325-A3 at Vienna University of Technology, and is moving to the Graz University of Technology. He has accepted the challenge to make our new open access Journal a big success. Please help him in his mission!

He will be assisted by Dr. Jean Kergomard, the present EiC who will be acting for one year as “Past Editor in Chief”.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jean for all the effort he has put (and will continue) for 6 years to making our Journals internationally recognized!
Very early, he realized the transition of publication word to open access and dared conducting this transition (with the support of previous board) within the EAA which is now one of the first scientific associations proposing open access journal to its members.
