Invertebrate Sound and Vibration

13th International Meeting

University of Missouri, Columbia      June 4-7, 2011


More than 100 participants including more than 30 students, 5 main talks, 54 contributed talks, 34 posters, live music in cooperation with singing insects, and periodical cicadas (brood XIX) made ISV 2011 a  memorable  experience for everyone. Thanks to all participants for contributing to the success of this excellent meeting!

The logo of the meeting was taken from the 1992 ISV meeting in Pommersfelden, which was organized by Dagmar and Otto von Helversen. Otto von Helversen passed away unexpectedly in March 2009 only months after his retirement; Dagmar passed away in 2003. The first ‘“Dagmar and Otto von Helversen Lecture” was given by B. Ronacher during ISV 2011.
