We cordially welcome you in the heart of Antwerp, the former cultural capital of Europe. Its splendid renaissance and rococo architecture together with contemporary museums are an excellent and inspiring environment for the conference theme “Innovation built on history”.
The International conferences on Cochlear Implants and other Implantable Auditory Technologies are the most comprehensive, innovative and inclusive events of their kind with over 2000 otologists, audiologists and speech pathologists, scientists, educators and industrial partners.
This 15th edition of the conference aims to realize a next step forwards in the field, based on evidence based experience and fueled by cutting-edge technologies and the latest scientific developments.
High end app driven ICT facilities will encourage professional interactions and communication.
Though you will be an active member of many of the highly specialized forums, after the plenary session keynotes will provide you with an extended overview of the whole field from basic science to surgery, from guidelines to rehabilitation, from children to auditory cognitive impairment, from auditory brainstem implants to vestibular implants and from cochlear implantation to middle ear implants
We are very much looking forward to meeting you both as fellow professionals with a shared passion for helping people with hearing problems through implantable technologies and, especially, as friends.
Prof. Paul Van de Heyning, President
Prof. Marc De Bodt , Prof. Vincent Van Rompaey, Vice-Presidents
