Call for Abstracts
Dear colleagues and friends,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee it is our honour and pleasure to invite you to the 49th Workshop on Inner Ear Biology (IEB), which will take place from 30 September to 02 October 2012 in Tübingen, Germany, preceded by a Symposium on 29 September at the same location.

The IEB Workshops are organized annually throughout academic centres in Europe with the objective of offering an international platform for scientific exchange on the latest developments in the field of inner ear biology.

The Workshops are forum for multidisciplinary interaction between basic research scientists and clinicians working at the genetic, molecular, cellular, and whole-organ levels. The Symposium, with presentations from invited speakers, will highlight the near-future application of basic research to diagnosis and therapy of sensorineural hearing loss.


On behalf of all those involved, we would like to encourage you and your colleagues to participate actively in the Workshop by submitting an Abstract for an oral or a poster presentation.

       During the 44th Inner Ear Biology Workshop a number of IMPORTANT decisions were made :

1. The registration fees, established for the first time during the 43th workshop at MontPelier, remain as 150 Euros for participants and something less for students.

2. To guarantee that the IEB traditions are maintained over the years it was decided to form a steering comittee (Board) which will facilitate the duties of each organizer. Jean-Luc Puel was elected as the coordinator of the board and he will announce its structure duting the 45th meeting at Ferrara.

3. The future of this web site is at serious risk, since the organizers cannot fund its yearly expenses (1000 Euros). The web site issue will be discussed and hopefuly resolved at the forthcoming Ferrara meeting.

As you might know already, from 2001 every IEB meeting will have a separate space in the IEB web structure and we will try to enrich your information about the future IEB activities by presenting early announcements / invitations from the local organizers. We present a salutation from the Organizer of the next meeting in Liege, Dr. Philippe Lefebvre.

Dear Colleagues,

        On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 39th Inner Ear Biology Meeting, I would like to invite you to Li?e next September. The workshops have always had a very special character, which it has been possible to preserve over the years. This meeting in Li?e will be organized in the Spirit of the Founders of the workshop. The main purpose was and still is to provide the opportunity for an open exchange of ideas with open, friendly and, if necessary, hard discussion. In this way, people get to know each other and become friends, even if they have differing opinions. That is the reason why we will try to create the conditions of excellent scientific exchanges in a state of the art "Palais des Congr?" in Li?e and of socializing after the scientific session. The congress palace of Li?e is situated in the center of the city and has a nice view on the river. On the Saturday, we have organized a satellite symposium on "advanced treatment of inner ear disorders" which is sponsored by the Royal ENT Society of Belgium. This symposium will be the link between the basic research on the future daily medical practice. The attendance to meeting is free of charge as usual. Every day, we will have a tutorial lecture on a selected topic of a general interest, as this was appreciated last year in Rome.
        The social program will include a cruise on the river followed by a diner in an ancient church and a gala diner in a castle. Finally as customary, we will have a family excursion to Brugge, also called the Venice of the North. To get a glimpse at the program, please visit our website: www.uia.ac.be/ieb2002/.

        I hope that you will join us in Li?e from September 7th to 10th, 2002 and please, if you have any question, contact us at + 32 43665905

Sincerely yours,

Philippe Lefebvre
Chairman of the Organizing Committee
