We are very pleased to inform you of the ELEVENTH INTERNATIONAL
CONGRESS ON SOUND AND VIBRATION (ICSV11) to be held 5-8 July
2004, in St. Petersburg, Russia at the four star Hotel Pribaltiyskaya.
ICSV11 participants will be able to take part in a congress with a first
rate scientific programme, and also experience first hand the considerable
