Dear Colleagues,

             This is to let you know that the XXI 
IBAC will take place in Pavia, Italy, on the 
15-18 September 2007, and that for this occasion 
we are organising a symposium entitled “Vocal 
communication in mammals”. This symposium will 
focus on research involving vocal production, 
social interactions, sexual communication and 
species or individual recognition in both 
terrestrial and marine mammals (with the 
exclusion of underwater communication).
             The symposium will last 3-4 hours 
with 20 minutes slots for talks (15 min talk and 
5 additional min for questions).

If you are willing to participate in this 
symposium, please send your abstract to one of 
the organisers, Isabelle Charrier 
(isabelle.charrier at u-psud.fr) or David Reby (reby at sussex.ac.uk)

General information concerning the conference can 
be found below. Please pass this email on to interested colleagues.


XXI IBAC - International Bioacoustic Congress
CIBRA, University of Pavia, 15-18 September 2007

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

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, biologists from different 
specialisms (ethologists, physiologists, 
taxonomists, ecologists, etc) with engineers, 
sound archivists and amateur sound recordists, to 
foster discussion and exchange of ideas.

During the Congress the 2nd European workshop on 
animal sound research and libraries will be held. 
The workshop will be organized by CIBRA for the 
European Network of Bioacoustic Collections for 
Taxonomy, Systematics and Conservation. The 
network was created based on the agreement of 
experts who attended the 1st workshop at the 
Fonoteca Zoologica (Madrid), 27-30 September 
2006, to foster cooperation among institutions, 
researchers and interested amateurs to safeguard 
animal sound recordings and to optimise their use 
as a resource for research and nature conservation.

The Congress is based on thematic symposia that 
will cover both the traditional research areas 
and new emerging themes. To date, five symposia are planned:

"Advanced tools for sound recording and analysis" (G.Pavan et al.)
"Vocal communication in mammals" (I.Charrier and 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 & N.Mathevon)
