2nd African Bioacoustics Community Conference 2 – 5 November 2020

The 2nd African Bioacoustic Community Conference is going ONLINE!
In light of the global COVID-19 crisis, the ABC has decided to push forward with a hybrid conference,
moving all presentations to an online space with the option of attending in-person at the University of
Stellenbosch in South Africa if government restrictions allow.

This conference will show-case the diverse field of bioacoustics and bring together researchers from around
the world in a safe and inclusive setting! We have many exciting plenary talks and fun events in store. We
hope that you will join us!
