Fifth International Conference on the Effects of Noise on Aquatic Life

The Fifth International Conference on the Effects of Noise on Aquatic Life (AN2019) will take place during the week of 7-12 July 2019, in Den Haag, The Netherlands. The conference will follow from, and build upon, the earlier meetings, the most recent of which took place in Dublin in 2016.

The meeting will be held at the Grand Hotel Kurhaus of Scheveningen, a building dating back to 1884. The hotel presents itself with grandeur and flair. It is right at the sea with a wonderful beach. The boardwalk features numerous restaurants and cafes. The venue is easily reached from Amsterdam. It provides exceptional accommodation, meeting rooms, and places for informal discussions.

At this point, conference organizers are in the early planning stages and it will be very helpful for them to have some sense of interest in the meeting from potential participants. Therefore, they have set up a short online survey to get your thoughts on the meeting and to keep a list of interested participants so that they can keep you informed of major progress in planning. In addition, please share the link with others who might be interested in attending the meeting:

The conference website is in development:

Please visit the web site regularly so you will be aware of important information about the meeting.

Also, both Facebook ( and Twitter (@AquaticNoise) have been set up, so please follow for updates.

Over the coming months, the organizers will set up our Technical Advisory Board, raise funds, and develop a tentative program. They will be announcing calls for papers as well as how to sign up to attend the meeting and make hotel reservations. They are hoping to have sufficient funding to provide some support to students and younger colleagues, and so if anyone knows of (or controls) funding opportunities please contact Christine Erbe ( or Joe Sisneros (
