Invertebrate Sound and Vibration Meeting in Lincoln, UK
After six years of absence the Invertebrate sound and vibration meeting took place in beautiful Lincoln, UK. Manuela and Marcelo attended this inspiring conference presenting their work. Probably the best place to be this weekend if you`re into invertebrates producing and perceiving sound.

Finally, first in-person conference after 3 years
After being postponed by 2 years, the 14th International Congress of Neuroethology (ICN) took place at the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, Portugal. Dr. Stefan Schöneich and Marcelo Christian attended the ICN 2022, presenting a poster titled "Does size matter? - A study on correlations between calling song and body size parameters within and across cricket populations". It was an inspiring and joyful event, and one could sense the need for socializing in the scientific community after all this time.
His work on insect locomotion, specifically the geometry of ant gaits, brought new insights into kinemtaics to the table. The newly developed high-speed camera technology allowed for observations in 3D, where previous studies were limited to 2D analyses.
Together with Tony Robillard and Hannah ter Hofstede we organized our first International Worshop on Eneopterology. Two fantastic days with passionate exchange of ideas inspiring new reseach projects. Already looking forward to our next eneopterology meeting in autumn - hopefully then at least partly in-person in a hybrid format.
