2019年1月11-14日，来自压电实验室王骥等8位教师和丁曙东等16位学生共同参加了在哈尔滨举行的第13届全国压电和声波理论及其器件应用研讨会。该会议最早由宁波大学压电器件技术实验室发起举办，这也是实验室成员第13次参与该会议。在此次会议上，师生们共作了19场精彩的报告，内容涵盖压电声波器件和制造技术的广泛的领域，给大家留下了深刻的印象。严蔚教授在分会场作了特邀报告，报告的题目是“Joint Defects Identification for a Prefabricated Structure Using Piezoelectric Impedance Analysis”。部分老师还主持了一些分会场的报告，显示了实验室老师们在该会议的参与程度和领域的良好声望。会议今年的优秀学生论文竞赛，共40位同学参与竞赛，其中授予10人优秀论文奖，包括压电实验室丁曙东同学和沈耀东同学。这是压电实验室连续第三年获得该项殊荣。会议中间，师生们和其他院校、科研单位、企业的同仁们进行了广泛和深入的交流，互相展示各自的研究工作进展，讨论了研究中间的问题和困难，寻找了工作中的共同点并思考合作事宜。
据悉，全国压电和声波理论及器件技术研讨会(Symposium on Piezoelectricity, Acoustic Waves, and Device Applications, SPAWDA)是从2004年起开始酝酿召开的以压电理论和声波器件以及医学超声为核心内容的学术交流平台，主要的发起人是宁波大学的王骥教授和浙江大学的陈伟球教授，得到浙江大学丁皓江教授、鲍亦兴院士以及其他诸多院校同仁们的热情鼓励和大力支持。此次会议于2019年1月11日至1月14日在黑龙江省哈尔滨市召开，由中国力学学会、中国声学学会、IEEE等学术组织主办，由哈尔滨工程大学、中国地震局工程力学研究所、先进船舶材料与力学重点实验室联合承办，近300人参加了这次会议，其中不乏国内外著名高校和企业的专业技术人员。
There were 7 faculty members and 16 graduate students from the Piezoelectric Device Laboratory, Ningbo University participating the 13th Symposium on Piezoelectricity, Acoustic Waves, and Device Applications (SPAWDA), Harbin, January 11-14, 2019. It was also the Laboratory’s 13th participation of this conference that was first organized by Piezoelectric Device Laboratory in 2004. At this conference, professors and students of the Laboratory made 19 interesting presentations which covered wide field of piezoelectricity, acoustics and mechanics and impressed many participants. Particularly, Professor Wei Yan presented an invited talk entitled “Joint Defects Identification for A Prefabricated Structure Using Piezoelectric Impedance Analysis”. In addition, some professors were the chairs in some sessions, which showed their commitment and good academic reputation in this conference. Moreover, two graduate students, Yaodong Shen and Shudong Ding, won the students best paper award. This is also the third consecutive year that the Piezoelectric Device Laboratory has won this prestigious award. In the conference, professors and students presented their works along with others from different universities and institutions, discussed the challenges in their research and explored the opportunities of collaboration.
The Piezoelectric Device Laboratory has been actively organizing and participating the SPAWDA from the beginning. The conference has provided an excellent opportunity for the students and faculty members to showcase creative work and form closer relations with industry. This conference was sponsored by CSTAM, ASC, and IEEE UFFC-S and was held in Harbin, China, January 11-14, 2019. More than 300 people include someone from leading universities and research institutions participated this conference.
