XXI International Bioacoustic Congress

Subject: XXI International Bioacoustic Congress

This is forwarded from Thierry Aubin, :

The XXI International Bioacoustic Congress (IBAC) will take place in
Pavia, Italy, on 15-18 September 2007. On that occasion, we are
organising a symposium entitled "Animal communication networks: from
behaviour to brain."  This symposium will focus on the relationships
between Communication and Social Environment, mainly in the following
domains: acoustic production and reception (neurophysiological
studies), social regulation by acoustic signals, sexual communication,
group recognition in both Invertebrates and Vertebrates (with the
exclusion of mammals and underwater communication).

The symposium will last 3-4 hours with 20 minute 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, Thierry Aubin  or Nicolas

General information concerning the conference can be found below and

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 &
