The 36th World Congress of Audiology ( is coming up and it is in Paris, from the 19 to 22 of September 2024 …. 50 years almost to the day since it last came to France!

The French Society of Audiology, with the support of the French Society of Otorhinolaryngology, has been working hard to bring together the world’s leading experts in hearing loss, tinnitus and vestibular disorders for a scientific conference that will be remembered.

From Teleaudiology to the emergence of Artificial Intelligence, from the specificities of Hearing Aid delivery and Audiological services across the globe to the practice of Evidence-Based audiology, all of the profound upheavals that span our professional practices will be addressed.  In this respect, the three themes chosen for the 2024 roundtables promise valuable exchanges with the opinion leaders concerned, these topics being: Hearing & Cognition, Hearing & Neurodevelopmental disorders, and Ototoxicity.

Because their cutting-edge expertise is inseparable from the lightning progress made in our discipline, Paris 2024 will also be a choice forum for researchers in Auditory Neuroscience, Genetics, as well as Speech, Language and Hearing disorders.  We, of course, will not overlook the undeniable contribution of Imaging to the diagnosis of inner ear pathologies, whether they affect the function of hearing or balance.

Last but not least, therapeutic and industrial innovations will be highlighted in order to promote the outcomes of clinical and translational research.

Our ambition is to offer audiologists from all over the world an acute insight into the emerging pathologies in Audiology and Otoneurology through outstanding keynotes and numerous practical workshops where seasoned specialists as well as promising young professionals in training will be able to come together to share their experience or deepen their knowledge.

In 2024, the eyes of the world will be on Paris, and not only for the Olympic Games.  So start preparing your trip now, we are looking forward to welcoming you to the French capital for an unforgettable event!

For the French Society of Audiology,
Prof. Hung THAI-VAN, M.D. Ph.D.
President of the 36th World Congress of Audiology

Key Themes and Topics

The congress will focus on three main themes:

  • Hearing & Cognition: Exploring the relationship between hearing and cognitive function, including the impact of hearing loss on cognitive decline and the potential for cognitive training to improve hearing outcomes.
  • Hearing & Neurodevelopmental Disorders: Discussing the latest research and clinical practices in the diagnosis and treatment of hearing-related disorders in children and adults, including autism, ADHD, and other neurodevelopmental conditions.
  • Ototoxicity: Examining the effects of ototoxic medications and substances on hearing and balance, as well as strategies for minimizing harm and promoting hearing health.

Emerging Trends and Innovations

The congress will also highlight cutting-edge research and innovations in audiology, including:

  • Artificial Intelligence: Exploring the potential applications of AI in audiology, such as personalized hearing aids and speech recognition systems.
  • Teleaudiology: Discussing the benefits and challenges of remote audiological services, including telehealth and tele-audiology platforms.
  • Imaging and Diagnostics: Showcasing advances in imaging technologies, such as functional MRI and optical coherence tomography, for the diagnosis and monitoring of hearing and balance disorders.
