Welcome

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 14th ESPCI to be held in Bucharest, Romania from 16 to 19 October, 2019.
 
The ESPCI is one of the largest international events focusing on pediatric cochlear implantation that has gained reputation as a leading meeting in the field of auditory implants in children. It represents a good occasion to bring together scientists, clinicians, engineers, speech therapists and technicians to share their valuable knowledge and experience. It is also an opportunity for young professionals to develop by learning about the latest developments, presenting their own work, to receive professional feedback and to discuss numerous subjects with presenters and other participants.

We also welcome the parents of children with cochlear implants, teenagers, and adult CI recipients, and encourage them to interact with professionals.

The scientific program will cover state-of-the-art methods for evaluating the whole auditory system using subjective methods but also electrophysiology, genetic and imaging, personalized surgery, fitting and speech therapy, advances in auditory implants technologies, and robotics.

Congress Theme: Holistic Care of Cochlear Implanted Children - A Step Closer

We hope to receive many submissions for parallel sessions on research, education and clinical practice in the different fields of cochlear implantation.

On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing Committees, we look forward to welcoming you to Bucharest.
