2º Workshop on analysis of acoustic landscapes

Members of VICG will discuss data analysis approaches to help analysts of acoustic data that attempt to understand the relationships between sounds and the natural landscapes that generate them. They will continue the discussions started in the previous meetings (the first workshop happened last September and continued in other meetings), present new results and define new problems to delve into. Beyond our researchers, the meeting will have the participation of researchers from UNESP, Politécnica/USP, UFRJ, UMC, UNIFAL-MG, UFRN, UFAC, all of them from Brazil and QUT (Universidade de Tecnologia de Queensland). The event will occur on September 16th, in the ICMC-USP.


PhD double degree agreements with Netherlands

The PhD students Rafael M. Martins and Danilo B. Coimbra, two of our VICG members defended their PhD in Groningen-Netherlands at 29th of February and 18th of March, respectively. As part of the PhD double degree agreement between ICMC-USP and RUG, both students must defend in both institutions that promotes the agreement to fulfill the requirements to obtain the PhD double degree. Although both PhD ceremonies are similar in terms of work discussion/argumentation, they also have some differences. While RuG ceremony is composed of 8 professors and take 45 minutes, ICMC-USP has a presentation before the discussion, 6 professors and can take up to 4 hours long.
