Basic Auditory Science 2023

21 September - 22 September 2023

Dyson School of Design Engineering at Imperial College London

This is to announce the Basic Auditory Science 2023 meeting hosted by the Dyson School of Design Engineering at Imperial College London on the 21st and 22nd of September, 2023. This is an event co-sponsored by the Spatial Acoustics and Immersive Audio and the Hearing SIGs from the UK Acoustics Network.

Unfortunately, this event has now sold out.

This meeting is potentially relevant to anyone in the UK and the world interested in the science of Hearing, Acoustics and Audiology. The ethos of the meeting is to facilitate the friendly exchange of work and ideas while providing excellent value for money.

It will be a two-day meeting, with presentations over several sessions (these will run as plenary) and posters always on display in a separate space.

The presentation sessions are as follows:

  • Hearing-assistive technologies and modelling. CHAIR: Mark Fletcher (Southampton)
  • Spatial hearing and immersive audio rendering. CHAIR: Lorenzo Picinali (Imperial)
  • The physiology of hearing. CHAIR: Kerry Walker (Oxford)
  • Objective measures of hearing (EEG, fNIRS, fMRI etc.). CHAIR: Chris Sumner (Nottingham Trent)
  • Psychoacoustics and cognitive aspects of normal and impaired hearing. CHAIR: Brian Moore (Cambridge)
  • Multi-modal hearing and hearing-assistive technologies. CHAIR: Amir Hussain (Edinburgh Napier)
  • Effects of noise exposure on hearing and therapeutic training. CHAIR: Chris Plack (Manchester)


Each oral presentation should last 10 minutes which will then be followed by 5 minutes of Q&A.

Poster presentations should be in portrait orientation and a maximum size of A0.

The conference programme is available to download here


The meeting will start at 9am and finish at 5pm, followed by a conference dinner, on the 21st of September and start at 10am and finish at 6pm on the 22nd of September. We therefore recommend booking accommodation for the night of the 20th and 21st of September if accommodation is needed. Unfortunately accommodation cannot be provided through the university, therefore we have provided a list of recommendations below.
