International Symposium on Auditory and Audiological Research


The topic of ISAAR 2017 is:

"Adaptive Processes in Hearing"

The general subject of the 2017 symposium is "Adaptive processes in hearing". The concept is to consider this topic from different perspectives, including current physiological concepts, perceptual measures and models, electrophysiology and neuroscience approaches, as well as implications for hearing devices and new technical applications. The programme will consist of invited talks as well as contributed talks and posters. The session titles and invited speakers are listed below.


  1. Adaptive behavior in complex listening environments:
    Virginia Best, Piotr Majdak, Owen Brimijoin

  2. Neural mechanisms and modeling of adaptive auditory processes:
    Tobias Moser, Jan Schnupp, Elia Formisano, Mounya Elhilali

  3. “Maladaptive” processes in hearing:
    Pim van Dijk, Roland Schaette, Martin Pienkowski

  4. Electrophysiological correlates of auditory adaptation
    Tobias Overath, Stefan Debener, Manuel Malmierca

  5. Adaptive and learning processes with hearing devices:
    Monita Chatterjee, Nikolai Bisgaard, Tom Francart, Dianne van Tasell
