African Bioacoustics, Online

2nd Nov 2020 - 5th Nov 2020


Going Online!!!

2nd - 5th November 2020 - Worldwide!

In light of the global COVID-19 crisis, the ABC organization committee has decided to push forward with a hybrid conference, moving all presentations to an online space with an option of attending in-person in accordance with governmental restrictions. Through this decision, we hope to be more inclusive and to ensure the health and safety of all of our delegates! We are offering the same great opportunities to participate in the African Bioacoustics Community Conference, without the need to travel.

From the 2nd of November 2020, we'll be diving straight into 4 days of fascinating talks and poster presentations from scientists and researchers all over the world! 

This year our focus is on even greater representation! We are seeking plenary speakers for the conference who are preferably living and working in Africa. 

Get in touch with us if you want to be considered for a plenary talk.  

Abstract Deadline has been extended to: 15th August 2020

We sincerely hope that you will join us!

Thanks to the generosity of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), we are able to provide student sponsorship for full online conference attendance to selected individuals. Due to the limited funds available, sponsorship will be given on a merit basis, therefore, if you would like to apply for student sponsorship, please send your CV and a letter of motivation (300 words max) to the ABC Organizing Committee at . For students based in South Africa, sponsorship will also include an internet data allowance for the duration of the conference to minimise streaming costs.

In addition, our focus is on even greater representation this year! We are seeking plenary speakers for the conference who are preferably living and working in Africa. Submit an abstract if you would like to be considered for a plenary talk.
