The Symposium will be organized around three main themes: 

  1. Recent developments in acoustic sensor and platform technologies
  2. Acoustic characterization of aquatic organisms, ecosystem structure, and ecosystem processes
  3. The contribution of acoustics to integrated ecosystem assessments and management.

Sessions will be set up for each main theme. Keynote speakers will be given talks on the major themes. Keynote talks will be 30 minutes with 10 minutes for questions; all other talks will be 15 minutes including 3 minutes for questions.

Authors will be limited to one oral presentation and one poster as senior author; presentations must be given by the lead author unless there are extenuating circumstances. A poster may be requested in lieu of an oral presentation. Poster sessions will be introduced with a brief description of each poster within the appropriate theme and topic session by the chair.

The Symposium will be conducted in English.


Symposium contributors will be able to publish their results in a special issue of the ICES Journal of Marine Science.
