WORDS FROM THE CHAIR
I share their passion for research and translation of research findings
into evidence-based clinical practice in evoked response audiometry.
IERASG is inclusive and international. Our goal is to advance global
understanding and practice in the field of auditory evoked responses. We
are multi-disciplinary with members who are scientists, clinicians and
students. The diversity of the IERASG Council represents our global
membership. It is easy to join IERASG Ė just attend the symposium.
IERASG symposia are held mid-year in different parts of the world. The
symposia provide opportunities for people with an interest in auditory
evoked responses to come together for a free exchange of ideas between
senior and newer researchers in a supportive environment. We are greatly
looking forward to our next IERASG symposium that will be held on 21-24
May 2017 in Warsaw, Poland. I encourage you to attend what will be a
great meeting. The 2017 IERASG Symposium is chaired by Professor Henryk
Skarzynski who is supported by Professors Krzysztof Kochanek and Wieslaw
Jedrzejczak who chair the Scientific and Organizing Committees,
respectively. This will be the 25th International Evoked Response
Audiometry Study Group Biennial Symposium and hence we will be
celebrating 50 years of IERASG. Since the inception of this field we
have made great strides in the application of evoked response
audiometry. Important challenges remain however. We continue to seek
valid, reliable, and time-efficient objective measures of different
aspects of auditory function. I hope to see you in 2017 to discuss the
latest developments in our field.
||It is my pleasure to welcome you as Chair of
IERASG, the International Evoked Response Audiometry Study Group.
Our Study Group (also known as Halís Club since it was
originally established for the exchange of ideas about auditory
evoked responses by Professor Hallowell Davis) is for anyone
with an interest in evoked response audiometry. Previous IERASG
Chairs, Professors Hal Davis, Terry Picton, Roger Thornton, and
John Durrant, have had distinguished research careers and have
made significant contributions to this field.
