Symposium 2023 banner









Our goal is to bring together researchers and students interested in these topics, share ideas, foster learning, and provoke insightful discussions. Four keynote speakers–Dr. Lara S. Burchardt (MPI), Dr. Ellen Garland (University of St. Andrews), Prof. dr. Henkjan Honing (University of Amsterdam), and Dr. Stephanie L. King (University of Bristol)–will give presentations covering a diversity of species and topics. Additionally, members of the Comparative Bioacoustics Group will give “flash talks” on their ongoing research. The day will end with a chaired discussion.

Registration for participants is now open. Registration is free of charge but compulsory if you wish to attend the symposium, and is limited to the first 100 people. The deadline to register is January 7, 2023.
