International Symposium on Auditory and Audiological Research (ISAAR 2021)


23/08/2021 - 27/08/2021    
13:00 - 17:00


Due to ongoing concerns about the health risks of the COVID-19 global pandemic and associated travel restrictions, the organizing committee of ISAAR (International Symposium on Auditory and Audiological Research) has decided to make our 2021 conference a virtual meeting.

We will distribute the activities throughout 23 – 27 August between 1 and 5 pm CET.

The topic of ISAAR 2021 is “The auditory system throughout life – Models, mechanisms and interventions.” The concept is to consider this topic from different perspectives, including current physiological concepts, perceptual measures and models, electrophysiology and neuroscience approaches, as well as implications for hearing devices and new technical applications.

Our invited speakers at ISAAR 2021 are:

Session I: The neural bases of age-related hearing loss

Charles Liberman, Daniel Polley, Karen Steel

Session II: The developing auditory system

Dan Sanes, Deniz Baskent, Teresa Ching

Session III: The aging auditory brain

Barbara Shinn-Cunningham, Jonathan Simon, Björn Herrmann

Session IV: Cognitive aging: Mechanisms and interventions

Stuart Rosen, Frank Lin, Diane Lazard

Session V: Rehabilitation and compensation strategies

Ruth Litovsky, Pamela Souza, Anna Warzybok, Tobias Neher


Registration opens 15 May.

Abstract submission will be open between 15 May and 15 June.
