Creative and Interdisciplinary Program

The Artistic Committee of the Ecoacoustics Congress is soliciting abstracts for contributed talks and posters for the 2018 International Society of Ecoacoustics congress.

Ecoacoustics is an interdisciplinary science that investigates natural and anthropogenic sounds and their relationship with the environment over a wide range of study scales, both spatial and temporal, including populations, communities and landscapes. Ecoacoustics operates in all types of terrestrial and aquatic (freshwater and marine) ecosystems extending the scope of acoustics and bioacoustics (

Deadline for all abstracts is 4th February 2018.

Submission deadline  for all abstracts and proposals has been extended to 11th February 2018

Abstract submission has now closed.

Contributed talks and posters (Creative and Interdisciplinary Focus)

Abstracts for contributed talks (oral presentation) and posters can be submitted on any aspect related to ecoacoustics. The creative and interdisciplinary program welcome abstracts focusing on ecological sound art, acoustic ecology, sound studies and interdisciplinary collaborations within the scope of ecoacoustics.  All abstracts will be peer-reviewed and successful contributors will be notified by 4th 11 March 2018. Please note, the number of timeslots for contributed talks is limited and it may not be possible to accommodate all those who select ‘talk’ as their preference.  In this case, successful contributors will be allocated a poster presentation instead, at the discretion of the Artistic Committee.
