Ecoacoustics Congress 2016, June 6-8

Tuesday, June 7, I am giving a presentation in the Ecoacoustics Congress 2016, held June 6-8 at Michigan State University in East Lansing.

Ecoacoustics Congress 2016 will bring together scientists from around the world for an in-depth conference exploring new frontiers of ecoacoustics research and development. Sessions at this year’s conference will feature:

  • Ecoacoustics Environment
    • Tropical
    • Fresh Water
    • Marine
    • Terrestrial
  • Ecoacoustics Impact
    • Health
    • Analytics
    • Community/Species Impact

Titled after the course I co-taught with Lindsey French in fall 2015, “Eco-Sensing and the Soundscape” serves as a teaching resource blending ideas and practices of acoustic ecology with the DIY hacking aesthetic of new media in a post-secondary art school curriculum.

Our course blog provides a curricular resource for you to explore and implement, and an outlet for our students’ work.
