UK “Ear and Hear” Meeting

12 September - 13 September 2022

University of Southampton


In brief

This conference is of interest to anyone in the UK and the world who has an interest in the science of Hearing, Audio and Audiology. The plan is for a two-day meeting, in the mould of Basic Auditory Science & BSA Short Papers meetings of Legend.

The aims of the conference are to meet the need for in-person scientific exchange after the COVID disruption

  • Expanded the scope of the meeting to include more interdisciplinary aspects that are part of UKAN. Specifically, we invite participation of other UKAN SIGs: Bioacoustics, Biomedical, Communication, spatial and immersive audio). The goal is to enable to look over the horizon: if we want to solve the big problems of the future, we need to get out of our comfort zone and we need to engage the next generation!
  • The meeting will start mid-morning on Monday and end mid-afternoon Tuesday, with most of the presentation being via poster, and several sessions of talks (~10 talks across two days).
  • University accommodation is provided – bookable at the time of registration – low cost (determined by our university’s non-negotiable costs: accommodation, morning coffee, room rent).
  •  We hope to provide a free BBQ Monday night for everyone to attend in a more social environment
  • Opportunity to listen to talks online, streamed as much content as possible to allow people to participate who can’t travel (poster sessions are not streamed).
  •  Opportunity to present ‘electronic posters’ on numerous large screens.
    Tours through the ISVR new world-leading anechoic chambers.
