Dear All,

Passive acoustics is now a common tool used to observe cetacean species. The
recordings of sounds emitted by whales and dolphins are used to detect the
individuals, to classify their sounds and to localize them during their
A scientific workshop on these topics was created in 2003 and was called
"International Workshop on Detection, Classification and Localization of
Marine Mammals using Passive acoustics".
Every 2 years since, regular sessions have brought together researchers
specialized in marine biology, bioacoustics, underwater acoustics, signal
processing, pattern recognition and mathematics. In celebration of the 10th
anniversary of this workshop, we take the opportunity to publish this book
comprising chapters from scientific teams who have actively participated on
the advanced international research of cetacean observations.
