Awareness of fake ICA conferences (message from ICA Office)

posted on 20/02/2019

You may already be aware that there are conferences that hide their predatory nature by using the same acronym and descriptors as legitimate conferences. This leads to confusion and potentially the duping of researchers out of their travel funding. We are bringing this to your attention in case you are not aware. You can advise your membership as you see fit.

Last year, there was an ICA 2018 -- International Conference on Acoustics, Tokyo, Japan, October 8-9, at the Narita Tobu Hotel Airport. This "conference" was not one of our ICA (International Congress on Acoustics) series of congresses. Yet, the website advertising this event (https://waset.org/conference/2018/10/tokyo/ICA) had a professional look and feel. This year there is an announcement of an ICA 2019 to be held in Tokyo next October (https://waset.org/conference/2019/10/tokyo/ICA ). Of course this conference has nothing to do with our International Congress on Acoustics ICA 2019 to be held in Aachen.

It is not just ICA that is being used. If you check https://waset.org/conference/2019/04/boston/icsv, you will see an ICSV 2019: International Conference on Sound and Vibration conference in Boston being advertised. This has nothing to do with the IIAV series of ICSV conferences.

As a small step to help acousticians avoid fake conferences, the ICA maintains a Calendar of acoustical meetings at www.icacommission.org/calendar.html that lists only reputable meetings. You can also apply to have your meeting endorsed by the ICA (see http://icacommission.org/symposia.html#endorse) allowing you to use the ICA logo on your website and in your promotional materials, giving proof of legitimacy to your meeting.
