The Discovery of Sound in the Sea website (DOSITS, is one of the most comprehensive Internet resources on underwater sound. The website provides peer-reviewed, scientific content on the physical science of underwater sound and how people and animals use sound. It also provides efficient access to timely information on the effects of underwater sound on marine animals.

The DOSITS project, conducted by the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography (GSO), was launched in November 2002. Since then the DOSITS website has received nearly 55 million hits. To commemorate this milestone, celebrate the success of the project, and thank the over 125 members of the acoustics community who have contributed their efforts, please join us during the 2013 International Congress on Acoustics (ICA), on the evening of Tuesday, June 4, 2013, for a series of engaging presentations on current advances in underwater acoustics. This symposium will provide a unique opportunity to hear from leading researchers as well as network with members of the acoustics community.
