This volume contains 131 of the papers presented at the 22nd International Symposium on Acoustical Imaging. This meeting, which was held for the first time in Florence, Italy, on September 3-6, 1995, allowed an intense and friendly exchange of ideas between over 150 researchers from 26 different countries of Europe (70%), America (20%), Asia and Australia (10%). The Symposium started on Sunday, September 3, with the opening Session held in the magnificent 'Salone dei 500' in Palazzo Vecchio; this included invited talks by Peter WeHs and Hua Lee, who reviewed the State of the Art in Acoustical Imaging research. One hundred and forty papers, selected from the nearly 200 submitted Abstracts, were presented in 11 non-parallel oral Sessions and one Poster Session. This year a 'Best Poster' award was introduced, which was won by V.Miette, M.Fink and F.Wu. Also, a special session on Acoustical Microscopy was organized by Walter Arnold, in which invited speakers Ioie Iones, Oleg Kolosov, Andrew Briggs and Ute Rabe reviewed the capabilities of this em erging topic.
