65th International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians: Call for Papers
2020 was a challenging year, and the 65th International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians had to be postponed to 2021. The EUHA Congress with accompanying trade exhibition
is one of the major conventions in the hearing acoustics and hearing systems industry. In addition to the trade show, more than twenty specialist lectures and various tutorials will be offered. The 65th International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians is scheduled to be held in Hanover between 15 and 17 September 2021.
During the Congress, a broad range of topics will be presented. International speakers will be discussing ground-breaking results of the latest research in audiology and medicine, with strategies for improving hearing aid fitting and connectivity in modern communication solutions being just some of the topics on the agenda.
The special format for topics with a focus on the future scheduled for Friday, the third day of the convention, is known by the name of “Future Friday”. Exhibitors will present special events at their trade fair stands and keynote lectures offered during the afternoon of 17 September 2021 will start at 2 p.m.
