Join us 6-10 July 2020 in Southampton

As the ICUA 2020 conference is still some months away, we want to reassure all our delegates, speakers and exhibitors that  we are fully committed to delivering a safe, productive and successful meeting as planned in the summer.

Please be assured that the safety of our participants is our highest priority and we are implementing all guidance and recommended safety measures issued by the UK Government and the World Health Organisation.  We will continue to monitor the situation very closely, however if you have any concerns please contact our conference organisers at

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Southampton in July.

In 2012, the IOA organised the successful European Conference on Underwater Acoustics (ECUA) in Edinburgh. The many advances in the field of underwater acoustics since then make it appropriate to hold another international conference to discuss the latest research and applications.

In the 400th year since the Pilgrim Fathers sailed to the New World on the Mayflower it is fitting that the IOA holds its International Conference on Underwater Acoustics in the city from which they departed. It is also appropriate that the IOA celebrates 50 years of the AB Wood medal, an award bestowed alternately to UK/European and US/Canadian researchers in the field of Underwater Acoustics.

Located on the Southampton waterfront, Leonardo Royal Hotel Southampton Grand Harbour, the conference hotel is centrally located very close to the main historic area with many restaurants and hotels. The nearby ferry port offers regular sailings to the Isle of Wight. We look forward to welcoming our friends and colleagues from all over the world to present your latest research.
