It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the XXX Bárány Society Meeting to be held in Uppsala from Sunday, June 10 through Wednesday, June 13 2018, in the prime of the summer, when the sun barely sets in Scandinavia. It is our intention to follow the successful footsteps of the meetings in Buenos Aires (2014) and Seoul (2016). By saying that, it is our clear vision that the meeting will offer everyone new insights in the field of oto-neurology and a great conference time.
The Bárány Society is an international interdisciplinary society founded 1960 with the intention to increase and diffuse the knowledge of oto-neurology and vestibular function. An important goal of the Bárány Society today is to facilitate contacts between basic scientists and clinicians engaged in vestibular research. Every six years the Bárány Society Meeting is revisiting Robert Bárány’s Uppsala. Uppsala offers a visit to a Scandinavian university city with a mixture of tradition and new cool design. In the quiet surroundings you can easily walk between your hotel and the venue.
Our meeting will be held at the Uppsala Concert and Congress Hall in the center of Uppsala, with a pre-congress teaching day at the Uppsala University Hospital the 10th of June as a part of the visit. Uppsala is situated in the vicinity of Stockholm and easily reached by train arriving from the international airport of Stockholm Arlanda (ARN).
We find it important to announce that members as well as non-members interested in oto-neurology are invited to this exciting event. During the meeting five prizes will be given for scientific achievements. The most prestigious prize is the Bárány Gold Medal that is awarded by the Medical Faculty, at Uppsala University. It is awarded to “the author who during the last six-year period has published the most valuable work on the vestibular apparatus in the widest sense of this term”. The Bárány Society likes to encourage researchers and clinicians under the age of 40 to apply for the new prize, Won-Sang Lee Award, open to members and non-members.
Any delegate wishing to present is invited to submit abstracts to us. The topics are being chosen in line with the subjects presented during the last meeting in Seoul. We will use our own conference app to ensure a safe and easy communication during the meeting. The abstracts will also be published by the Journal of Vestibular Research.
