|Welcome to Båsenberga…
… and to the HEAD Graduate School Second Summer Workshop. The purpose of the workshop is twofold: to give doctoral students within the field of hearing impairment and deafness hands-on experience of what it is like to be involved in organising a scientific conference; and to provide a forum for them to discuss their research with senior scientists as well as user organisations and industrial actors. This year’s programme includes a total of 22 presentations by researchers within the field of hearing and deafness; including presentations by HEAD doctoral students and state-of-the-art presentations by seniors within the HEAD milieu. We are pleased to have keynote addresses given by three of our distinguished international guests; namely Sigfrid D. Soli; Brian C. J. Moore and Kathy Pichora-Fuller. In addition to the scientific contributions; the programme includes presentations by representatives from organisations with an interest in the field of hearing and deafness; namely The Association of the Swedish Deafblind; The Swedish National Association of the Deaf; The Swedish Cochlear Implant Children Society and The Swedish Association of Hard of Hearing People.
HEAD doctoral students and postdocs along with our administrative team have put a lot of work into planning the workshop; aiming for a good mix of science and social activities to give you a lasting impression of what’s new at HEAD.
