Symposium on Vocal Communication in Mammals - XXI IBAC - International B

Subject: Symposium on Vocal Communication in Mammals - XXI IBAC - International Bioacoustic Congress
From: Isabelle Charrier <>
Date: Wed, 07 Feb 2007 10:10:40 +0100
Dear Colleagues,

            This is to let you know that the XXI
IBAC will take place in Pavia, Italy, on the
15-18 September 2007, and that for this occasion
we are organising a symposium entitled Vocal
communication in mammals. This symposium will
focus on research involving vocal production,
social interactions, sexual communication and
species or individual recognition in both
terrestrial and marine mammals (with the
exclusion of underwater communication).
            The symposium will last 3-4 hours
with 20 minutes slots for talks (15 min talk and
5 additional min for questions).

If you are willing to participate in this
symposium, please send your abstract to one of
the organisers, Isabelle Charrier
 or David Reby 

General information concerning the conference can
be found below. Please pass this email on to interested colleagues.


XXI IBAC - International Bioacoustic Congress
CIBRA, University of Pavia, 15-18 September 2007
The XXI International BioAcoustic Congress will
be held in the historical buildings of the
University of Pavia, Italy, where Spallanzani in
the 18th century studied the ability of bats to
fly in the dark. The Congress is organized, for
the third time, by CIBRA, the Interdisciplinary
Center for Bioacoustics and Environmental Research, University of Pavia.

The subject of bioacoustics is principally a
marriage between the fields of biology and
physical acoustics. Given its multidisciplinary
nature, the Congress aims to bring together, in
informal settings, biologists from different
specialisms (ethologists, physiologists,
taxonomists, ecologists, etc) with engineers,
sound archivists and amateur sound recordists, to
foster discussion and exchange of ideas.

During the Congress the 2nd European workshop on
animal sound research and libraries will be held.
The workshop will be organized by CIBRA for the
European Network of Bioacoustic Collections for
Taxonomy, Systematics and Conservation. The
network was created based on the agreement of
experts who attended the 1st workshop at the
Fonoteca Zoologica (Madrid), 27-30 September
2006, to foster cooperation among institutions,
researchers and interested amateurs to safeguard
animal sound recordings and to optimise their use
as a resource for research and nature conservation.

The Congress is based on thematic symposia that
will cover both the traditional research areas
and new emerging themes. To date, five symposia are planned:

"Advanced tools for sound recording and analysis" (G.Pavan et al.)
"Vocal communication in mammals" (I.Charrier and D.Reby)
"Monitoring the Environment: Bioacoustics as a
tool for inventory and monitoring of biodiversity" (K.Frommolt, et al.)
"The impacts of anthropogenic noise" (Y.Yan, et al.)
"Animal communication networks: from behaviour to brain" (T.Aubin & N.Mathevon)
