The 7th International Conference on Hyperacusis and Misophonia (ICHM7) is planned for Sunday to Tuesday, 15 – 17 September 2024. It will take place in Warsaw, Poland.
The meeting is addressed to audiologists, psychologists, ENT doctors, and other hearing professionals working with patients suffering from hyperacusis, misophonia, or tinnitus.
The scientific program will aim to provide a practical guide for improving your research and clinical work. We look to bring together clinical workers and researchers from worldwide to discuss the latest studies, ideas, and challenges.
I am very pleased to confirm that the 7th International Conference on Hyperacusis and Misophonia (ICHM7) will be held as a face-to-face event in Warsaw, Poland, from 15 to 17 September 2024. Following their hugely successful international conferences on otology (32nd Politzer Society meeting & 2nd World Congress of Otology), tinnitus (12th International Tinnitus Seminar and 1st Word Tinnitus Congress in 2017), and audiology (XXXV World Congress of Audiology in 2022) in recent years and their overwhelmingly positive feedback from the attendees, the Institute of Physiology and Pathology of Hearing and Institute of Sensory Organs have won the competition to host ICHM7 in 2024.
This event is suitable for oto-rhino-laryngologists, audiologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, speech and language therapists, hearing aid dispensers, social workers, neuroscientists, researchers, and other professionals who are involved in research or care for patients with tinnitus, hyperacusis, and misophonia. Over the 2 days of the conference, you will have the opportunity to attend talks from a multi-disciplinary group of world-renowned keynote speakers bringing together studies of audiology, ENT, mental health, neuroscience, epidemiology, psychoacoustic, psychometry, neurology, and other areas. The programme will feature key opinion leaders in medical, surgical, rehabilitative, and mental health from the clinical and laboratory research sphere but crucially, we will also hear from those with lived experience of hyperacusis and misophonia and their families. We hope to have the programme available at the beginning of next year, so do keep an eye on our website or join the mailing list for up-to-date information when that is released.
Warsaw is a magnificent city full of history and culture, with the conference venue based at the heart of the city, just moments away from the city liveliest bars and cafes, high-end shopping, green landmarks, and historic spots.
We will be opening the call for abstracts for oral and poster presentations very soon. Online registration is now open. Book early to avoid disappointment and take advantage of the early bird rates which will be available until the end of 2023. You can also now book accommodation through our website, giving you a choice of hotels within close proximity to the venue.
We are working hard to make this international conference our most inspiring and best yet, and hope to see you in Warsaw in September 2024.
