[AUDITORY] 2nd call: Summer School “Hearing in noise”, June 2023 Lyon (France)

Dear list,

This is the 2nd call for participation to the CeLyA Summer School “Hearing in noise” will take place from June 12th to 14th 2023 in Lyon France. In comparison to a conference, the talks will be longer and will introduce the basics before elaborating and finishing up with up-to-date research. The targeted audience is MSc / PhD students and postdoc potentially new to the field. Different sessions are organized to cover different aspects of hearing in noise, see the list of sessions and invited speakers below.

The participants and speakers are strongly encouraged to stay for the entire duration of the school to get more opportunities to interact with one another. Specific social activities (meal, barbecue party…) are organized on the premises to favor informal interactions. The participants will be able to present their own research during dedicated poster sessions (presentation is encouraged but not mandatory to participate in the school).

The school is free from registration fees (which includes all the sessions & social events except accommodation and travelling that will remain at the charge of participants), so we have a finite number of places (around 100). Therefore, we ask the participants to register by sending a short CV (1 page max.) and a few lines explaining their motivations for attending the school. After the first call, there are still a few places left, that will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. Registration is opened here. The deadline for registration is March 1st 2023.

Looking forward to welcoming you in Lyon,
