The 11th International Tinnitus Research Initiative Conference will be taking place in Regensburg from March 14-16, 2018 in co-operation with the European Cost TINNET Action.
About 300 international researchers, scientists and clinicians are expected to join this who-is-who of the wide interdisciplinary field of tinnitus research.
“Disruptive Innovations in Tinnitus” is the frame for presentations of the breaking outcomes in tinnitus research of the last years. There will be an industrial exhibition giving the chance to leading companies in hearing and tinnitus to present their latest trends and products.
The conference is internationally renowned in the medical field and provides a good platform to swap information and knowledge, discuss different solutions and allow networking with other researchers.
Before the conference officially starts there is a young academics conference for upcoming tinnitus researchers organized by the “European School for Interdisciplinary Tinnitus Research”(ESIT), a European research project coordinated from Regensburg University.
A great part in the aimed education of 15 PhD students is the early networking and inclusion in the international tinnitus researching community. This new era of researchers shall use the new research practices, do the first genetic studies on tinnitus and create a great pan-european database for tinnitus patients to goal in an individualized and evidence-based tinnitus treatment.
Twelve years after its foundation the Tinnitus Research Initiative Foundation is now back at it roots. The initial goal was founded of leading researchers and scientist on the field of tinnitus aiming to develop effective treatments for the different types of tinnitus.
In Europe about 40 Million people suffer from chronic tinnitus, means the ongoing subjective perception of noise or sound in the ear without an external source of sound.
The tinnitus research has come far in twelve years of TRI action, more researchers and scientist are working on this issue, outcomes and findings in diagnosis and therapy can be shown and a strong international network has been built. Nevertheless a unique cure for tinnitus and its subtypes has not been found yet.
The International Tinnitus Conference is supported – amongst others – by the Regensburger Universitaetsstiftung Hans Vielberth and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
