Participation in each of the Summer Schools was limited to a total of 50 that included students, lecturers, and discussion leaders. The purpose of these Summer Schools is to bring graduate students, distinguished lecturers, and discussion leaders together to discuss a wide variety of subjects in physical acoustics. This gives the students the opportunity to meet experts and talk about topics most students ordinarily wouldnt encounter at their own colleges and universities. The focus was on graduate students and academic participants. Approximately half of the participants have been advanced graduate students in physical acoustics. Volume I of the Proceedings of the 1998 Physical Acoustics Summer School contains verbatim transcriptions of the lectures given at the summer school Volume II of these proceedings contains copies of the transparencies used by the lecturers and Volume III contains background materials that were Sent to student and discussion leader participants prior to the Summer School.
