International inauguration Conference of the Institut de l’audition

International inauguration Conference of the Institut de l’audition

September 16 and 17, 2019 at the Collège de France, in central Paris.

This conference will formally mark the birth of the Institut de l’Audition, a new Institut Pasteur research center aiming to promote an integrative approach to auditory neuroscience and to develop innovative strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of hearing impairment.

In line with these ambitions, the program of the conference includes a broad range of excellent speakers, covering the field of auditory neuroscience in particular but also of sensory neuroscience in general.

Registration can be done at (Registration tab), where you will find additional information about the conference. The registration fee is 280 Euros (200 Euros for students) including lunches, coffee breaks and a gala dinner on September 16, at the famous La Coupole restaurant in Montparnasse. Abstracts for poster communications are welcome and can be submitted via the website (« Abstract Submission » tab).
