Welcome to IBAC 2023

The XXVⅢ International Bioacoustics Congress will be held at Hokkaido University (Sapporo campus, Hokkaido) in Japan.

IBAC meeting will be held in East Asia for the first time in its 50 years history! We look forward to meeting you in Sapporo Japan. Please, bookmark this page to get the latest updates on the congress.

The congress is re-scheduled to 2023, considering that it is still unclear whether oversea tourists can enter Japan within 2022, due to the strict border measures for preventing the spread of COVID-19.
Please save the following dates!

New congress schedule: 16-22 Oct. 2022
27 Oct - 1 Nov. 2023

    Call for symposia
    Symposia offer an opportunity for a focused talk session on a key area of research interest. The symposium organizer(s) should submit a proposal that will be evaluated by the local organizing commitee. It is not possible for the organizing committee to provide financial assistance to symposia. For accepted symposia, all symposium presenters are asked to submit their own abstract individually through the abstract submission system, which will open later. Please submit proposals by the end of Jan 2023 by email (ibac@sci.hokudai.ac.jp), as a single PDF that includes the following information: title of the symposium, the name(s) and affiliation(s) of the organizer(s) and the list of the presenters, and the brief outline of proposed topic (under 500 words). Each symposium is expected to include 4-6 talk presentations.
    Abstract submission
    We will start to accept abstract submission from Feb 2023.
