Call for applications graduate summer school “Acoustic Communication”, August 7-20, 2015

Graduate course arranged by graduate school SNAK, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark

Application deadline April 1, 2015

This intensive graduate course focuses on methods and techniques for studying animal sound communication in air (infra-, ultra- and sonic ranges), in water, and in solids (vibrations).  It includes lectures, practicals, and excursions with time for discussion and student presentations.  Introductory lectures aim at giving an overview of the subject of acoustic communication followed by special lectures on the fundamentals of acoustics, signal analysis, psychoacoustics, animal sound production, and noise.  Practicals aim at giving the students hands-on experience of sound and vibration recording, sound analysis, and playback in air and water with emphasis on methodological limitations and pitfalls.  MatLab will be used throughout the course but prior experience is not required.  The applicants will be evaluated through group presentations of practicals.

 More information including detailed program is posted here.
