This was the conference
It was very diverse and I think Peter Slater's keynote was the only talk
on duetting. 

A couple of things of maybe general to the list,  after hearing Peter,
high on my to-do list is getting to Eucador for the amazing group duets
of the Plain-tailed Wren:

My favourite talk was on ultrasonic vocalizations in wild deer-mice -
a study involving trapping, radio tracking, an array of ultrasonic
recorders and a thermal camera.  But the cutest thing was an aside,
a thermal camera video of a mountain lion walking through their study
site complete with glowing footprints.  You can see video here:
