It won't be long before the 62nd International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians will be opening its gates. Between 18 and 20 October 2017, audiologists and acousticians are set to meet in Nuremberg, Germany. Almost 20 lectures as well as a number of tutorials will offer an insight into the latest in audiology research, science, hearing aid acoustics, and technology. On Wednesday, there will, for instance, be presentations on over-the-counter hearing aids and their impact on global hearing care, multilingual speech tests, and speech intelligibility. Thursday's industry update will be dealing with innovations in directional hearing connectivity and cognitive abilities. Friday will be devoted to hyperacusis, tinnitus, and noise reduction. Visiting the Congress will pay off in any case as it offers ample opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss current issues.
As a new feature, admission wristbands will be replaced by e-tickets. From early September, e-tickets will be available from our online shop. They may be purchased in advance using a credit card or girocard. The ticket as well as the invoice are then directly sent to you by e-mail. For those who spontaneously decide to take part in the event, tickets will also be on sale at the conference centre in Nuremberg. By opting for an e-ticket, however, delegates avoid queuing and will have more time to spend at the Congress.
The mediaeval town of Nuremberg has a long tradition of trade and craftsmanship to look back on, at the same time being attractive for its innovative strategies. Some 130 exhibitors will be presenting their innovations in halls 3A and 4A on a total floor space of around 14,000 square metres, and showcasing innovative hearing technology, measurement technology, earmoulds, accessories, and a whole lot more.
The EUHA is delighted to welcome you to the Congress Get-together on Thursday night. A great opportunity to meet and enjoy good music and a relaxed atmosphere. Tickets for the Congress Get-together will be available from our online shop from September.

In 2017, the EUHA Sponsorship Award will be offered for the eighth 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 15 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.
