HEAL 2024 - HEaring  across the Lifespan

 

The next international HEAL 2024 conference (live) will be held from 6 to 8 June 2024 at our historic venue, the gorgeous Villa Erba Conference Center, on Lake Como in Cernobbio. This peaceful, elegant, cozy and little frequented town with all its charm will once again host our meeting. 

 

HEAL meetings, a.k.a. the Como Conferences, have closely monitored - and contributed to - the progress of modern Audiology and Hearing Science, also influencing the development of clinical studies and practical protocols. HEAL meetings bring together experts from across disciplines and offer delegates a unique opportunity to discuss their latest research in a truly international forum.

 

The Scientific Program is usually composed of several parallel sessions and enriched by Satellite Events dedicated to a great variety of topical issues as well as Special Sessions and Mini-Symposia proposed and coordinated by many Organizations and Institutions active in the wide area of hearing research and hearing care.

 

As an example, the last HEAL 2022 Scientific Program included two mini-symposia, four special sessions and various lectures and approximately 330 Communications with Delegates representing about 45 Countries from around the world.

Topics that will be addressed at HEAL2024 include, but are not limited to:

 

Speech perception

Speech-in-noise testing

Self-administered hearing tests

Epidemiology

Genetic issues

Early identification – novel techniques and methods

Auditory Processing Disorders

Speech and language development

Listening effort

Cognitive decline

Quality of life and hearing loss

Computational Audiology

e- and m-health solutions

Auditory modelling

Auditory Neuroscience

Artificial Intelligence applications

Data-driven hearing models

Effects of occupational and recreational noise

Tinnitus

Amplification – technologies and strategies

Implantable devices

Auditory training

Improving Hearing Care and Services
