The interdisciplinary workshop "Cetacean echolocation and outer space neutrinos: ethology and physics for an interdisciplinary approach to underwater bioacoustics and detection of astrophysical particles" will be held in October 2013, 18th-21st, in Erice, Sicily, hosted by the School of Ethology of the Ettore Majorana Centre. 

The development of underwater ocean observatories has stimulated new interactions between disparate disciplines to optimize their sensors, layout and protocols. One of the most promising synergies has come from interactions between astrophysicists working to detect light and acoustic signals from neutrinos and marine biologists listening to the sounds of marine animals (Nosengo, Nature 462, December 2009). 

The workshop is intended to join these different disciplines in the understanding of the underwater acoustic world and in the development of common research strategies and protocols to exploit the potential of Submarine Multidisciplinary Observatiories (learn more on the SMO project at The workshop will focus on the study of the acoustic behaviour of marine mammals, on the acoustic detection of neutrinos in the sea, on the sharing of detection technologies, and on the related technological challenges with a wide interdisciplinary approach. 

The expected audience would come from different disciplines, mainly marine biology, marine bioacoustics, acoustics, mathematics, acoustical oceanography, astroparticle physics and embraces many science fields related with the study, monitoring and conservation of the marine environment. 

Top scientists will present the state of the art in their peculiar disciplines and selected contributes will be presented by participants in a context open to discussion and knowledge sharing. Researchers, scientists, and students are all welcome in the exciting atmosphere of Erice to discuss their projects, results and ideas.

Registration details and the workshop program are on the webpage 

The participation cost is particularly attractive as it includes full accomodation, a day trip, and transportation to and from the closest airport.
