Free papers and posters are integral to the BAA conference.

It’s great that more than 100 audiologists, students, and researchers submitted abstracts for the conference, and it’s even better that 100 of them were invited to present posters or oral presentations. Providing PDF files of their work on the BAA website is a wonderful way to make this research accessible to a wider audience.

Reviewing the work of your peers can be a valuable opportunity to learn from each other, discover new insights, and stay up-to-date with the latest developments in audiology. It’s a great way to foster collaboration and exchange ideas.

Keep in mind that the page is being updated with more posters as they are received, so you might want to periodically check back to see any new additions. This can be a valuable resource for staying informed and connected within your professional community.
