QUT Ecoacoustics Symposium 2022: Dateclaimer

November 2-4, 2022, QUT, Brisbane, Australia

Rationale & Goal

Australia’s biodiversity crisis necessitates urgent action to deliver broad-scale monitoring and management of threatened species and ecosystems. Acoustic monitoring is set to revolutionise this by capturing a permanent, direct, scalable and objective record of the environment. But, managing and analysing big acoustic data is difficult; data, analyses, analysis tools effort and expertise need to be shared. Furthermore, we have no standard protocols and methods for acoustic monitoring.

This is the fourth in a series of successful ecoacoustics meetings at QUT (2017, 2018, 2020). This symposium will cover science through to practice, and aims to:

  • Bring together researchers and practitioners who use ecoacoustics in conservation to share knowledge;
  • Provide training in ecoacoustics data analysis tools and techniques;
  • Promote open science and sharing of data and analyses tools;
  • Network, collaborate and advance the research field of ecoacoustics.

The primary focus of this symposium is on ecoacoustic applications in conservation and monitoring of audible terrestrial fauna.

Attendance cost to follow.

The call for abstracts closes 12 August, 2022. For information on submissions, please go here.

Location: QUT Gardens Point Campus, Brisbane
