August 22 - August 25
The concept of the International Symposium on Auditory and Audiological Research (ISAAR) is to bring together scientific communities to facilitate cross-disciplinary discussions around topics related to auditory research and audiology, including current physiological concepts, perceptual measures and models, electrophysiology and neuroscience approaches, as well as implications for hearing devices and new technical applications. Traditionally, we have focused each symposium on a single theme while inviting contributions from a wider range of areas within auditory and audiological research, including, for example, perceptual and physiological measures of auditory function, measures of hearing loss, auditory modeling, hearing-instrument signal processing, aided outcome measures, multi-sensory speech perception, communication in complex environments, advances in neurotechnology and cognitive auditory neuroscience.
The last ISAAR symposium in 2021 was a virtual meeting due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the past however, ISAAR has had the tradition of being a physical meeting, and for 2023, we plan to return to having the symposium in person. Regardless of the format, we always design a programme that consists of a single-stream podium session intertwined with shorter parallel sessions or poster sessions, where the single-stream session contains both invited and contributed talks and the other sessions consist of poster or poster-like contributions.
The conference proceedings for 2023 will consist of the abstracts from all of the contributions to the conference, which is different from years prior to 2021 (i.e., 1969-2019) where the proceedings consisted of manuscripts from a selection of the contributions. An archive of these older proceedings are accessible via the Archives. Authors from 2021 and on who are interested in contributing a written account of their contribution are encouraged to submit to our special issue series with Trends in Hearing. Previous special issues from ISAAR are accessible via our Special Issues page.
