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.
