The 2nd Ultrasonic Vocalization Conference

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the 2nd Ultrasonic Vocalization Conference, which will take place online on the 23rd of August 2021 (FENS SATELLITE EVENT).

We strongly encourage everyone involved in behavioral and biochemical research to register for this free online conference:

This conference aims to create a discussion panel on what ultrasonic vocalization actually is and what role it plays in the animal world.

This conference is an international exchange of opinions on the phenomenon of ultrasound vocalization, sound communication between animals, and the possible existence of animal language, which may be an evolutionary prototype of communication in humans.

We will try to answer the question of whether vocalization is only an expression of emotions or whether it also has the properties of a message beyond the emotional. At the same time, invited lecturers will present the neurobiological correlates of ultrasound vocalization and show unique methods of USVs analysis and sound separation.

You will have the opportunity to listen and discuss with Richard Mooney -  George Barth Geller Professor of Neurobiology in the Department of Neurobiology in the Duke University School of Medicine; with Jeffrey Burgdorf Associate Professor in Biomedical Engineering at Northwestern University and the Director of Discovery Science at Aptinyx Inc in Evanston, Illinois; and Stefan Brudzynski - a former Director of the Centre of Neuroscience and Professor of Psychology and Biology at Brock University, is the recipient of the prestigious Outstanding Achievement Award from the International Behavioral Neuroscience Society for his contribution to the field of Behavioral Neuroscience.

We attempt to ensure that, as in 2019, despite the different format of the conference, each participant can actively participate in the panel discussion closing the hot topic lectures.

This International Conference specialized in Ultrasonic Vocalization provides an excellent opportunity to share academic developments, research findings, and experiences with delegates from around the World.
