To hear how the pandemic has impacted world soundscapes in unexpected ways (quieter oceans, birds singing louder), check out the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology’s Library of COVID-19 Soundscape Resources, click here

 

 

Annual Conference Goes Virtual

Posted September 9, 2021

It is true….the NHCA Annual Conference scheduled for February 10-12, 2022 will now be a virtual conference rather than the in-person gathering originally scheduled in Albuquerque, NM. Your NHCA leadership made the difficult decision to “go virtual” due to the uncertain future of the pandemic. However, this is advantageous for those who wanted to respond to the NHCA “Call for Papers” but were unable to present in person in Albuquerque. 

For this reason, NHCA has extended the deadline for abstract submissions to September 15, 2021.  ALL additional PROSPECTIVE PRESENTERS are strongly encouraged to notify the NHCA office now of your intent to submit your abstract on/before September 15th. To learn more and to apply, click here.
