This is an announcement and a Call for Abstracts for the fifth meeting of the International Conference on Voice Physiology and Biomechanics. The conference will be held in the Hongo campus of the University of Tokyo, which is the main campus of the university located in the center of Tokyo City.

The conference provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of current scientific research on the larynx and voice. The emphasis of this conference will be on basic and applied research rather than clinical treatment studies. We encourage investigators working in the following areas to attend the conference:

o Modeling
o Molecular & Cellular Biology
o Neurophysiology
o Physics
o Physiology

In this conference, we especially encourage studies related to the "Variations across Cultures and Species" as indicated by the subtitle of the conference to promote a wide spectrum research on cultural variants of vocal behavior and types of animal vocalization.

With this initial Call For Abstracts, we are asking interested participants to submit a 500 to 1000 word summary, plus figures or tables, in English to icvpb2006@xxxxxxxxxxx The abstract will then be forwarded to a member of the organizing committee for review.

Publication of papers based on talks given at the Conference is optional but encouraged.
