Dear MAVEBA participants,

Thank you so much for your contribution and your participation (in presence or at distance) in the 12th MAVEBA Workshop!
Hoping to see you again soon, I send you my best wishes for a healthy and successful 2022.
The MAVEBA website is updated with some photos and short video recordings: a nice memory of the days spent together. Have a look at: MAVEBA 2021 Gallery – MAVEBA 2021 (unifi.it) .
Again, please accept my thanks and best wishes!
With friendship
Claudia Manfredi

The submission of abstracts is now complete.
Despite the pandemic, we have received many abstracts from around the world on broad topics concerning the human voice. As always, they are all of high level and of great scientific interest.
A book of abstracts is available here.

The MAVEBA Workshop will take place in the Sant'Apollonia Auditorium , Via San Gallo 25a, Firenze, Italy.
The Sant'Apollonia complex is a former monastic complex in the historic center of Firenze, located between via San Gallo 25-27-29 (former church and chapel, used as an auditorium and conference room), via XXVII Aprile (entrance to the Museo del Cenacolo di Sant'Apollonia) and via Santa Reparata (entrance to the cloister).
The monastery was founded in 1339. From 1440 on, the abbess Cecilia Donati promoted a series of modernization and enlargement works of the cloister and the cenacle frescoed on the entire west wall by Andrea del Castagno in 1447.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that I cordially invite you to the 12th MAVEBA International Workshop. Let us think positive! The workshop will take place in person, unless last-minute restrictions due to the pandemic. More details will follow: this website will be constantly updated. I am looking forward to welcoming next December in Firenze old and new friends, colleagues, scientists and students to share knowledge and enjoy the Florentine Christmas atmosphere.

The MAVEBA Workshop concerns the study of our voice both from the methodological point of view and its biomedical applications. It welcomes contributions ranging from fundamental research and advanced technologies about models and analysis of signal and images of the human vocal apparatus and any related field, to all kinds of biomedical applications with emphasis on translational research, the link with the “real” complex world of the human being. The series of MAVEBA international workshops started in 1999 and is proposed every two years as a multidisciplinary meeting stimulating contacts between specialists active in bioengineering, clinical applications and industrial development. This twelfth Workshop will offer again the participants an interdisciplinary platform for presenting and sharing knowledge and recent results with anyone who is interested in this multifaceted subject that involves bioengineering, neurology, surgery, psychology, psychiatry, logopaedics, linguistics, singing and related fields, with applications ranging from the newborn to the elder.

Warmest regards
Claudia Manfredi
MAVEBA2021 Chair
