dear all, the deadline for the abstract submission for the Erice workshop
has been extended until June 23rd. After the deadline the acceptance of new
registrations will be still possible but conditioned by available places.

The program of the workshop and the list of invited lectures is available
here: http://www.unipv.it/cibra/FlyerErice2013_small.pdf
Please distribute it to anyone interested.

*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 http://web2.infn.it/smo/). 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

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:

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