IHS’ 67th Annual Convention & Expo is a unique opportunity to learn about the latest in hearing science, clinical practices, and technology. This is your opportunity to share your knowledge with other hearing care professionals. As a presenter, we consider you a partner as we strive to deliver the highest quality content to our attendees.
In 2018 we're looking for your best seminar ideas and cutting-edge research and technology for our new "Innovation Station". In 2018, concurrent seminars will be offered at Intermediate or Advanced levels only. You are the expert! Help shape the educational program for the 2018 IHS Convention & Expo by submitting your proposal by Wednesday, January 31, 2018.
Please review the 2018 Speaker Information and Due Dates document before preparing a submission. Selected seminar speakers will receive complimentary event registration. Innovation Station presenters do not receive complimentary registration. Travel expenses are not reimbursed. If your submission is accepted, you are expected to meet all posted dates and deadlines. IHS reserves the right to make adjustments to any presentation that does not meet deadlines.
Submissions are due by Wednesday, January 31, 2018. You will receive an automatic confirmation of your submission. Please keep this confirmation in your files. You will be notified in early March 2018 on the status of your submission.
We receive many proposals for the annual convention, so please understand that it is a difficult and highly selective process for our team of volunteers and staff to review and choose from among the many excellent submissions we receive. As such, quality rather than quantity is always best when submitting proposals. We much prefer to receive your best ideas rather than every idea you might have, so send us just the ones you think would make the strongest educational seminar.
PLEASE NOTE: Upon acceptance, IHS may modify the seminar title and description to fit our style and format guidelines for the purpose of the brochure, website, and onsite directory.
We suggest that you first develop your abstract in MS Word, then copy and paste the information into the appropriate sections in the online form. The online form does not have spellcheck and some symbols do not paste appropriate. Please review and edit your information before submitting it. Please do NOT submit the Word version of the form via email — all submissions MUST be submitted via the online form, and by the deadline. Click the "Start" button below to begin.
