NEW DEADLINE FOR SENDING ABSTRACTS: September 17, 2019, 23:59 (Brasília time)
The second edition of the French Brazilian Symposium on Hearing (FBSH) aims to prolong the great success of the first edition in 2018. As a natural follow-up of the topic of the first symposium, auditory screening, its focus will be " genetics, cognition and technology ".
It is now well-acknowledged that the broad diversity of hearing-aid outcomes rests, in a significant part, on genomic and epigenomic factors as well as on how the brain learns to cope with decreased auditory inputs. These issues are the subject of intense innovative research. Evidence-based strategies for early implementation of appropriate hearing interventions will be reviewed, to guarantee an optimized quality of life through hearing, balance and cognition from birth to old age, including the technological resources for restoring hearing in case of impairment, conventional hearing aids and cochlear implants.
The event, of international scope, will be released in English and Portuguese (simultaneous translation), intended for students and professionals in the area of health, engineering and education.
In addition to the conferences of internationally renowned researchers, sponsors will hold workshops for case discussion, presentations of research data and new products.
Do not miss this opportunity to deepen your knowledge, present your research results and discuss with us!
It will be a pleasure to meet you next November.
