We are pleased to announce the fifth Virtual Conference on Computational Audiology, VCCA2024! This will bring together hearing, audiology, AI and computational researchers from across the world. 

About VCCA2024

The 2024 conference will be chaired by Simone Graetzer (University of Salford) with co-chairs Trevor Cox (also Salford), Jon Barker (University of Sheffield), and Jan-Willem Wasmann (Radboud University Medical Center). The chair of the Scientific Committee is Volker Hohmann (University of Oldenburg). 

The two main themes are AI and hearing and the changing landscape of Audiology. Our keynote speakers will comprise Manohar Bance (University of Cambridge), Lars Bramsløw (Eriksholm Research Centre), Melanie Ferguson (Curtin University) and Deniz Baskent (University of Groningen). The topics span a broad range, including the latest developments in hearing devices and AI technology for hearing and audiology, modeling hearing loss, field-related measurement and validation, cognitive and neuro-audiology, cochlear, brainstem, and vestibular implants, post-implant rehabilitation and accessibility and inclusive design in hearing and audiology. 

VCCA2024 will build on previous conferences to provide an interactive platform for the presentation and discussion of the latest research in Computational Audiology. Key areas of exploration will include the application of computational approaches to audiological interventions and hearing science, AI in audiology and hearing healthcare, auditory neuroscience, and acoustics to facilitate hearing. The program will feature submitted talks, special sessions, and keynote presentations.
