Dear colleagues,

We are very pleased to invite you to submit a research paper dealing with ecological acoustics for a special issue of Ecological Informatics.

Ecological acoustics is an emerging and exciting field of research because it brings together ecology, animal behaviour, acoustics, signal processing and computer science. Ecological acoustics can provide remotely several sets of data, such as individual behaviours, group structure, population density and dynamics, species distribution, community structure and landscape evolution. However, despite increasing interest, ecological acoustics remains a comparatively new field and internationally accepted protocols have yet to be developed. It is time, therefore, to showcase world-class applications of ecological acoustics which demonstrate its usefulness and suggest the way towards internationally accepted protocols.

We therefore welcome original research on the full range of science and technology to do with ecological acoustics, including:
. Acoustic sensing hardware
. Recording strategies/protocols
. Data management/storage
. Metadata/retrieval
. Analysis to yield ecologically useful information
. Visualisation of acoustic data
. Current examples of web-based and stand-alone software.
. Acoustic communities
. Evolution of soundscapes

All submissions must be reports of original research. Reviews and submissions that consist only of descriptions of hardware and/or software will not be accepted. In addition, papers on traditional bioacoustics (that is, dealing with the distribution and behaviour of individual species) will not be accepted because this field of research is already well established. Papers should target ecosystem level analyses. If in doubt please contact a guest editor.

Please find attached the official call of paper with all information detailed, or visit this page.

The issue is co-edited by Michael Towsey (Queensland University of Technology, Australia), Stuart Parsons (University of Auckland, New-Zealand) and Jérôme Sueur (Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, France).

If you intend to submit a paper please send a one or two sentence summary of the topic (not an abstract) to one us before December 31st 2012.

Very best regards,

The co-editors.
