– 16th International Symposium on Hearing,
23-27 July, Cambridge UK
Second announcement – Abstract submission open
The symposium will be held at St John’s College of the University of Cambridge from 23-27 July 2012 (Arrival on Sunday 22nd; End of symposium Friday 27th July after lunch). For further information see http://hearing.psychol.cam.ac.uk/ISH2012.htm.
The emphasis of the symposium will be Basic Aspects of Hearing: Physiology and Perception. Priority will be given to papers that provide a new perspective on some aspect of hearing, present new data concerning a phenomenon in hearing, or examine links between perception and physiology. Only 60 contributed oral papers will be accepted; this is the number of reasonable length talks that fit comfortably into a one-week symposium with plenty of time for discussion. The maximum number of participants will be about 100; a limited number of poster presentations will be accepted from participants not presenting oral papers.
The symposium proceedings will be published by Springer (New York) as a book with the provisional title "Basic Aspects of Hearing: Physiology and Perception." The tentative publication date for the book is summer 2013. Poster presentations will not be included in the book. The book will be published as part of the series Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology, which will mean that the chapters will be indexed in PubMed.
The cost of the symposium including registration, accomodation, meals, proceedings, social outing, and a symposium banquet is estimated at 1000 British Pounds. The final figure will be published on the symposium website at a time nearer to registration.
Abstracts can be submitted from 1st October - 2nd December 2011. Details of the abstract submission process may be found at http://hearing.psychol.cam.ac.uk/ISH2012.htm. Other important dates for registration, paper submission, etc are also available on the website. Please note that the deadlines will be strictly enforced.
