Announcement of C.F. Ying Award for Young Ultrasonics Scholars


The Journal of Applied Acoustics in Chinese (JAA) is delighted to sponsor the prestigious C.F. Ying (Chongfu Ying) Award for young fellows in Ultrasonics at the upcoming 2023 International Congress on Ultrasonics in Beijing (The 2023 ICU BEIJING), China, with up to US$ 1600. This distinguished award aims to honor the memory of the esteemed Professor Chongfu Ying (1918-2011), an Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and a trailblazer in the field of Ultrasonics in China. 

Prof. Chongfu Ying


Professor C. F. Ying played a pivotal role in the establishment of Ultrasonics as a discipline in China, as well as the founding of the acoustical society of China (ASC), the Institute of Acoustics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (IACAS), and the Journal of Applied Acoustics in Chinese (JAA). His remarkable contributions spanned diverse areas of Ultrasonics, including non-destructive testing (NDT) and evaluation (NDE), transducer behaviors, ultrasonic propagation in mediums like piezoelectric crystal, formation and human soft tissue, power ultrasound, laser ultrasound, acoustic cavitation, and more. To learn more about Professor C. F. Ying, please visit the website https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ying_Chongfu.


The C.F. Ying Award will be determined by a panel of experts covering a broad diversity of ultrasonics topics. The chair of the Prize Committee is Prof. Hailan Zhang of the Institute of Acoustics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences who was actively engaged with the ICU conferences as well as the Journal of Applied Acoustics and the Chinese Journal of Acoustics for many years. The award will be presented to about 4 deserving individuals who are formally registered graduate students or young post-doctoral researchers under 40 years old. To be eligible, applicants must present their papers at the 2023 ICU BEIJING and demonstrate active involvement in ultrasound-related activities through their National Society, other National Society(ies), and/or regional or international organizations related to Ultrasonics and its Applications. Moreover, applicants should have made significant contributions to the advancement of theoretical and/or applied ultrasound through their published papers.


To apply for the C.F. Ying Award, please submit a single PDF file containing the following information:

    1. Name of the entrant

    2. Title of the Paper & Conference Paper Number

    3. Supporting letter from mentor or faculty Advisor
