ADVANCING HUMAN COMMUNICATION: HEARING AID RESEARCH
September 11-13, 1995 Bethesda, Maryland
REMINDER OF RECEIPT OF ABSTRACTS DEADLINE
The deadline for the receipt of abstracts for the first
biennial conference on ADVANCING HUMAN COMMUNICATION:
HEARING AID RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT is March 15, 1995.
The conference will provide a national forum for the
presentation of ongoing or completed research relevant
to signal processing and amplification for hearing
impaired persons. The objectives are to share and
critically examine, in a setting that stimulates creative
debate and interaction, current research relevant to
speech understanding in noise, amplification and signal
processing, in a variety of areas including speech
perception, psychophysics, physiology of the auditory
system, technologic advances in devices, and clinical
trials. Individuals from the widest range of related
scientific specialists are encouraged to participate
to provide additional insight into issues pertinent
to the area of amplification and signal processing
and to formulate the future directions of research.
Abstracts will be reviewed for acceptance by a
scientific panel. The conference format will include
both presentations and poster sessions, with considerable
time allotted for audience discussion.
Sponsors: The National Institute on Deafness and Other
Communication Disorders (NIDCD) and the Department of
Veterans Affairs (VA). For further information, call the
