Hannover will play a pivotal role for the international audiologists industry between 19 and 21 October 2016! The 61st International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians is scheduled to be held on the premises of Deutsche Messe Hannover. The world's largest event in the industry is a tried and tested combination of a trade exhibition showcasing technological innovations and a broad-ranging programme of specialist lectures featuring the latest results from international studies. The fair as well as the lectures are geared to an international audience. At the trade exhibition in Hall 6, more than 110 exhibitors will be presenting their technological innovations in hearing systems and accessories, measurement technology, and diagnostics.
Lecturers as well as young talents from Germany and abroad, the United States, England, France, Denmark, Austria, and Switzerland, will offer results from research and scientific studies. The presentations will centre on laser-driven hearing, cognition, diagnostics, LTASS, and hearing aid fitting. Tinnitus as well as current issues of hearing protection, speech tests, and listening effort will be dealt with. There will also be presentations on cochlear implants and CROS/BiCROS fittings. Measuring methods and innovations in power supply will be looked into.
Running as side events, the workshop sessions will offer a practical approach. There will also be room for a friendly exchange of views at the Congress Get-together, the FGH Partners Evening, or simply in between sessions of the extensive conference schedule or at the exhibition stands with their special design.
EUHA members should mark their calendars for Wednesday afternoon when the general meeting of the EUHA will be held.

In 2016, the EUHA Sponsorship Award will be offered for the seventh time. We're calling on all hearing care professionals to ask around and be on the lookout for young talents from our trade who have written a diploma, bachelor, or master thesis with high practical relevance and a forward-looking subject from the areas of audiology, hearing aid fitting, or with a focus on customer orientation. You're invited to promote the EUHA Sponsorship Award competition among young hearing aid acousticians in your company. It's worth it! Not only for the awardees who will win prize monies, but also for the whole trade as everyone will benefit from new findings and shared knowledge. An electronic copy of the thesis should be submitted to the EUHA Office by 1 August.

Since its founding in 2010, the members of the EUHA Percentiles Study Group, renamed Audiology Study Group in mid-2015, have devoted themselves to developing applicable recommendations on the use of percentile analysis for hearing aid acousticians. In its work, the study group relies on the expertise contributed by academics, developers, lecturers, and hearing aid acousticians.
