The International Commission for Acoustics’ purposes are to promote international development and collaboration in all fields of acoustics including research, development, education, and standardisation.
The means for the Commission to fulfill its mission are:

- to convene the International Congresses on Acoustics in accordance with the Commission’s guidelines and to act as the International Advisory Committee for these congresses;
- to sponsor or co-sponsor other topical and special international conferences normally in close cooperation with national and/or regional organisations and to give financial support (grants or guarantees), as a grant to organising committees for such meetings or as a travel grant to participants.
