NHCA Conference to Focus on Future of Hearing Conservation

The National Hearing Conservation Association has announced a call for papers for presentations and posters for its 36th Annual Conference, to be held Feb. 24-26, 2011, in Mesa, Arizona. The theme of the conference is "The Future of Hearing Conservation: Technology & Innovation."

Paper submission topics should reflect NHCA's mission of "prevention of hearing loss due to noise and other environmental factors in all sectors of society." The association says presentations may address basic scientific research, applied research, practical applications of research results, or other findings or concepts that may enhance hearing loss prevention efforts.

NHCA is soliciting submissions for Platform (Panel) Presentations and Poster Presentations. All proposals must be submitted electronically -- either online or by e-mail. Platform (Panel) Presentations proposals are due July 31, 2010; poster presentations proposals are due Sept. 1, 2010. To submit either, visit http://ht.ly/21J5N.

NHCA's conference features three days of workshops, presentations, panel discussions, and poster presentations on current issues relevant to the practice of hearing loss prevention. Key topics include the latest research on:

  • Occupational hearing loss
  • Music-induced hearing loss
  • Hearing loss after impulse noise
  • Novel strategies for measuring noise risk and pre-clinical effects of noise on hearing
  • Hearing protection device innovations
  • Public and personal health issues related to hearing loss
  • Hearing loss prevention training and education
