>Milan, October 12-14, 2000
>Chairman: Ferdinando Grandori
>Scientific Organizers:
>Ferdinando Grandori and Deborah Hayes
>Within the past five years, scientists and clinicians have demonstrated the
>feasibility, validity, reliability, and effectiveness of early detection of
>infants with hearing loss through universal newborn hearing screening. This
>international conference is designed to provide state-of-the-art scientific
>and clinical information on systems of newborn hearing care. As a follow-up
>to the highly successful European Consensus Development Conference (Milan,
>1998 - http://www.ECDCevents.biomed.polimi.it), our conference will provide
>an overview of the elements of care required to develop successful programs
>of newborn hearing screening, diagnosis, and intervention. Screening
>technologies and protocols, diagnostic assessment strategies, and
>amplification and intervention techniques will be discussed. Parents will
>provide their perspective on the process of early identification and
>intervention. This conference is intended for: pediatricians,
>otolaryngologists, neonatologists, family practitioners, parents and
>families, pediatric audiologists, audiologists, speech-language
>pathologists, teachers of the deaf, and health care administrators.
>The organizers warmly invite you to come to Milan and meet new colleagues
>and old friends in a region of rich and fascinating history and culture.
>The format of the conference includes invited presentations and keynote
>addresses, free communications, poster sessions, round table discussions,
>short courses, and seminars. Interested participants are encouraged to
>submit scientific and clinical papers and proposals for round table
>discussions, short courses, and seminars. An electronic version (e-mail or
>diskette) of the abstracts (max 300 words) must be sent for consideration
>by May 15, 2000 either to Dr. Ferdi Grandori (in Europe) or to Dr. Deborah
>Hayes (in the USA).
