Dear attendee of the VCCA2020,

Welcome to the conference! The virtual “Goodiebag” contains items that may be useful during the day.

We proudly present to you the official VCCA2020 trailer! Sonya personally explains the virtual conference to you in the video.  Meet Alan Truebot, the worlds’ first virtual audiologist.

Video-conferencing turns out to be much more straining than regular meetings. Attending a full virtual conference day might be an effort comparable to what some hearing-impaired people experience every day. Please take enough breaks and exercises. Below, we selected a few articles to help you to survive and prepare for virtual meetings. Respect your limits and the limits of the other attendees. Be aware that attendees gather from different timezones, climates, and often English is not their first language.

Also, we selected a few papers that we consider useful backgrounders to get to know more about computational audiology. Here’s an introduction to computational audiology, including tutorials and crash-courses, to learn more about AI and Audiology.

Our sponsors provided items that show some of the latest developments in industry.

BRIDGE to clinical care
Blended Real-Time Interactions and Digital-Guided Experiences

During the COVID-19 crisis, Phonak accelerated the delivery of new eSolutions and web-based services to deliver quality hearing care during stay-at-home orders and social distancing. The global restrictions on movement have called for agility and an alternative service delivery model for hearing care.
