The Second Ultrasonic Vocalization Conference (organized by: Wiktoria Karwicka, Paweł Boguszewski, Adam Hamed, Robert Kuba Filipkowski)


The 2nd Ultrasonic Vocalization Conference (virtual) is an international exchange of insights 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 aim to address whether vocalization is only an expression of emotions or beyond. Invited speakers will present the neurobiological correlates of ultrasound vocalization and demonstrate unique vocalization analysis and sound separation methods. This Ultrasonic Vocalization Conference provides an excellent opportunity to share academic developments, research findings, and experiences on this exciting emerging topic with attendees from around the World. Confirmed speakers include:  Paweł Boguszewski, Stefan Brudzynski, Jeffrey Burgdorf, Robert Kuba Filipkowski, Sylvie Granon, Adam Hamed, Nicola Simola, Markus Wöhr
