IUTAM Symposium on Advances in Biomechanics of Hearing

The Symposium will take place in Stuttgart, Germany, from May 17 to May 20, 2016.

The purpose of this Symposium is to bring together scientists, engineers and otologists in order to serve as a meeting point for reviewing and discussing recent advances in the research in Biomechanics of Hearing. Engineers will benefit from the discussion of clinical problems or observations to develop more valid mathematical models of different aspects of the hearing process, Surgeons will profit from predictions available with mathematical models and the mechanical insight into the physical phenomena involved in the hearing process. It is, therefore, another important aim of the Symposium to encourage and strengthen interdisciplinary work among engineers and otologists.

Topics of the Symposium include, but are not limited to:

  • Biomechanics of the Middle Ear
  • Biomechanics of the Inner Ear
  • Mechanical Simulation Models
  • Reconstruction with Passive and Active Middle Ear Implants
  • Audiological Measurements
  • Important Deadlines
