The ABBFest Conference and Celebration

Saturday, October 25, 2008
Stata Center, Room 32-D463

Welcome to ABBFest Conference.

We are organizing this conference to highlight recent advances, and persistent challenges, in the areas of underwater acoustics, array signal processing, underwater acoustic communications, and naval operations. It will also mark the occasion of the retirement of Professor Arthur Baggeroer.

The technical portion of the workshop consists of speakers who will present current work or review the state- of-the-art in one of the areas to which Professor Baggeroer has contributed during his career. The talks will be held at the Stata Center in Room 32-D463 located on the fourth floor adjacent to the Faculty Dining Room (not to be confused with the Faculty Club).

The conference will be followed by a reception and banquet at the MIT Faculty Club. The conference is organized by the former students of Professor Baggeroer and is to be held on Saturday, October 25, 2008.

Registration information, including details about book at the discounted conference rate at the Kendall Square Marriott, is available here. If you have any questions about the program, please feel free to email the conference committee.

We sincerely appreciate the help and well-wishes of the large community of alumni, colleagues and friends of Professor Baggeroer that has helped make this conference possible. Download information package here.
