The International Symposium on Musical and Room Acoustics ISMRA 2016, satellite of the International Congress on Acoustics ICA 2016, will be held in La Plata, Argentina, on September 11-13, 2016.

The ICA and the Committee on International Research and Education of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA/CIRE) jointly, officially support the symposium.
ISMRA 2016 provides an important opportunity for consultants and researchers to learn from each other. Its smaller and more focused format is suitable to enable a very intensive and productive meeting.
The Symposium venues will be the Teatro Argentino and the Planetario of the National University of La Plata. La Plata city, capital of Buenos Aires Province, is only 56 km (34.80 mi) from the Buenos Aires city, and the trip takes about 1 hour by car, bus or train.
The conference will include contributed, as well as invited papers, and several special keynote presentations on room and musical acoustics related to its main topics. There will be also technical visits to the more important musical halls of La Plata and Buenos Aires: Teatro Argentino, Teatro Colón, Ballena Azul and Usina del Arte.
