We would like to thank the organizers and all the participants of this year's conference in Taipei, TW, who once again made our tinnitus conference such an extraordinary event.

For the first time the TRI conference took place in Asia, and more than 420 researchers, clinicians, audiologists, representatives from patient organizations... presented and discussed results from ongoing research projects during the three days of the conference. The abstract book of the conference is available for download here.

Hazel Goedhart, Tinnitus Hub, wrote a blog post on her general impressions of the TRI Conference. During the conference, Hazel conducted interviews with numerous tinnitus researchers, which we will soon present in various video series.

The BTA Annual Conference 2019 will take place on Friday, September 13, 2019 at the Goldsmiths University London, UK. One of the highlights of the conference is the poster competition, that is open to all students, practitioners, industry colleagues and researchers. The winning poster - as determined by a combination of peer and panel vote - will have the opportunity to present their work at a future conference.

Research Topic 2018Dr. Agnes Szczepek (DE) and Dr. Paola Perin (IT), both participants in the highly successful COST TINNET-Action (2014-2018), have launched a new Frontiers Research Topic "Neuroimmunology of the Inner Ear".

Frontiers’ Research Topics are peer-reviewed article collections around themes of cutting-edge research. Defined, managed, and led by renowned researchers, they unite the world’s leading experts around the hottest topics in research, stimulating collaboration and accelerating science.

The Research Topic "Neuroimmunology of the Inner Ear" welcomes original research and reviews regarding cellular and molecular mechanisms of interaction between the immune, sensory and nervous systems in the inner ear in health (e.g. characterization of immune barriers or immune cell populations) and in pathological conditions. The aim of this Topic is to present comprehensive information covering clinical and basic research observations on the topic of immunity and inner ear. Clinical as well as ex vivo and in vitro research done with human and animal tissues and cells is welcome.
