                    XXI IBAC - International Bioacoustic Congress
                   University of Pavia, Italy, 15-18 September 2007
                      2nd Announcement and news about deadlines

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

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, experts from different 
biology areas (ethology, physiology, taxonomy, ecology, etc.) with engineers, 
acousticians, sound archivists and sound recordists, to foster discussion and 
exchange ideas.

The Congress is based on thematic symposia that will cover both the traditional 
research areas and new emerging themes. To date, the following symposia are 
  * "Advanced tools for sound recording and analysis" (G.Pavan et al.)
  * "In-air communication in mammals" (I.Charrier & 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 & 
  * "How to describe, measure and compare complex acoustic communication signals in 
birds and mammals?" (J.Vielliard)
  * "2nd European workshop on animal sound research and libraries"
Selected papers will be published in a special Congress issue of the 
Bioacoustics journal.

The Abstract Submission deadline has been extended till June 10 and acceptance 
of the abstracts will be acknowledged within 10 days.

The registration should be made by email no later than June 30th.
