The mission of IPS is to promote and advance the field of phononics by providing opportunities for international collaboration and exchange of knowledge in research and education. At present, the society undergoes, and sustains, the following activities pertaining to the field of phononics:
- Oversee the organization of a biennial conference; and
- Recognize the intellectual contributions of its members and the research community at large. The society serves as a unifying body that encourages coordination and cooperation among chapters, or national societies, dedicated to the field from across the world.
