Cochlear Implant CI 2013 Symposium in DC-Registration Available

 ACI Conf2013 Logo Final

The Registration and Informational Website for the CI 2013 Symposium "Emerging Issues in Cochlear Implantation" is now open. The conference will be held October 24-26, 2013 in Washington DC. The symposium will feature a new format for CI conferences that will allow us to explore and discuss a limited number of key issues in depth. We are accepting poster presentation submissions through May 31. The conference is sponsored by the newly formed American Cochlear Implant Alliance. Conference information can be accessed from our website at There will be a substantial conference discount for registrants who are either individual professional members or are registering as part of a group that is an Organizational Member.  Please note that the conference discount is limited to ten individuals from each Organizational Membership group.

If you are not a member now, we encourage you to join ACI Alliance to receive a code that will allow you to register at the discounted rate. To become a member, go to and click the Join Us tab. If you have questions, please contact the conference registrar at 317-635-4755 or . Consumer/parent members of ACI Alliance are not eligible for the conference discount and may want to join as a Professional Member.

The conference will be an important gathering for those of us who care about improving access to cochlear implantation.  In addition to the scientific sessions, we will be holding ACI Alliance on the Hill for attendees who wish to share information on cochlear implants with their Congressional delegation. ACI Alliance staff will be setting up meetings for those who wish to participate. Training will be provided.  We feel this will be a critical opportunity for our community to advance awareness about cochlear implants.  On Thursday evening, we will hold a private screening of a new film drama "95 Decibels" which will include an interactive discussion with the film's director, crew, and actors.


We look forward to seeing you in Washington!
