Recap of VCCA2023

Dear attendees,

We are incredibly grateful for your participation in the Virtual Conference on Computational Audiology 2023 (VCCA2023). We look back at a memorable event, due in large part to the diversity and richness of ideas, discussions, and contributions from all participants.


We would like to extend our congratulations to the winners of our two major awards this year.

Winner Pitch AwardKaren dos Santos (Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil)

Title of talk: Digits-in-noise test in Brazilian Portuguese: preliminary study in schoolchildren

Jury members watched and selected best video pitches according to 3 criteria: Importance & Relevance to Audiology, Creativity, Clarity Highlights from the jury: “Fantastic example of a video pitch: engaging, informative and fun to watch, with scientific results and showcasing the research practice and people involved through video snippets. Very important and impactful project using computational innovations to screen for hearing loss in school children.”

VCCA2023 Young Scientist Award

Session chairs nominated candidates across the VCCA sessions. Jury members discussed and chose winners according to 3 criteria: Importance & Relevance to Audiology, Scientific Merit, Clarity

Winner Young Scientist Award: Greta Tuckute (MIT, US)

Title of talk: Driving and suppressing the human language network using large language models


Highlights from the jury: “Great clarity of explanations for very complex research. Excellent flow of presentation and live speaker (!). Scientific contribution, novelty and interdisciplinarity were outstanding and gave a view into the future. Great contributions to special session panel discussion, too.”
