4th International Symposium on
Acoustic Communication by Animals

July 18-21, 2017

Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium

Omaha, Nebraska, U.S.A.

The Acoustical Society of America has partnered with Omaha’s
Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium to bring together a diverse community of
scientists, engineers, teachers and students to the *Fourth International
Symposium on Acoustic Communication by Animals*, to be held July 18-21,
2017 on the grounds of the Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium in Omaha,
Nebraska, U.S.A.

This four-day symposium is designed to address contemporary topics in
animal acoustic communication across a wide range of taxa, including
arthropods, lizards and amphibians, as well as birds, fish and terrestrial
and marine mammals. The emphasis will be to share ideas, data, and
methodologies in the area of animal bioacoustics and communication and to
promote networking opportunities in this ever-growing discipline. Please
plan to attend, participate and share your work.

Pre-Symposium Workshop

The scientific program of the 4th International Symposium will be preceded
on Monday, 17 July 2017, by a half-day workshop (1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.) in
which key questions related to The Impact of Anthropogenic Noise on Animal
Acoustic Communication will be discussed. The specific goal of the event is
to objectively identify problem areas related to the influence of
anthropogenic noise in diverse ecosystems, as well as consideration of
strategies to mitigate scientifically-validated, adverse consequences of
exposure to man-made noise. The ultimate goal of the workshop is the
development of a guide to enable noise mitigation strategies to promote
and/or restore natural soundscapes. The workshop is free to all registrants.
