ABC africanbioacoustics at gmail.com
Fri Feb 28 05:32:55 PST 2020

This is the first call for the second African Bioacoustics Community (ABC)
Conference. The conference will be held between 1 and 6 November 2020 in
Stellenbosch, South Africa and is being hosted by the University of
Stellenbosch and Sea Search Research and Conservation.

This conference has a strong marine mammal focus, as acoustic methodology
is a common and important tool in marine mammal research, used for passive
acoustic monitoring, behavioural studies, and marine mammal conservation.
As a result, there will be many talks concerning bioacoustics research done
on marine mammals and a plenary presented by Prof Magnus Wahlberg on
hearing in marine species.  In addition, there will be a workshop taught by
Prof Wahlberg and Prof Jakob Christensen-Dalsgaard that covers the
mechanism of hearing in vertebrates. The workshop will focus on teaching
effective techniques to collect acoustic data in the laboratory and in the
field, both in terrestrial and marine environments.

Register and submit your abstract today to present a talk, or poster at the
second ABC Conference in November 2020!

NOTE: Abstract submission deadline 15 June 2020.

This year our focus is on even greater representation! We are seeking
plenary speakers for the conference who are preferably living and working
in Africa. Get in touch with us if you want to be considered for a plenary
