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.
In addition to the invited talks, we will have various talks as well as poster-like/pitch presentations throughout the conference. Besides the topics related to the focus area on "The auditory system throughout life", we invite contributions covering a wide range of other areas within auditory and audiological research, including, for example, perceptual and physiological measures of auditory function, measures of hearing loss, auditory modeling, hearing-instrument signal processing, aided outcome measures, multi-sensory speech perception, communication in complex environments, advances in neurotechnology and cognitive auditory neuroscience.
Depending on the number of submissions we aim to develop an exciting programme for both the presenters and the audience. We won’t have parallel sessions but only one major stream of presentations and discussions. After the submission deadline, we will inform the authors regarding the specific format of their contributions. For questions, do not hesitate to contact the organization committee.
Due to ongoing concerns about the health risks of the COVID-19 global pandemic and associated travel restrictions, the organizing committee of ISAAR has decided to make our 2021 conference a virtual meeting.

ISAAR – International Symposium on Auditory and Audiological Research – is formerly known as “Danavox Symposium”.
The “Danavox Jubilee Foundation” was established in 1968 on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of GN Danavox. The object of the Foundation is to support and encourage audiological research and development.
Since the establishment in 1968 the resources of the Foundation have been used to support a series of symposia, at which a large number of outstanding scientists from all over the world have given lectures, presented posters and participated in discussions on various audiological topics.Read More
