This meeting is the 9th international symposium in a row of successful meetings, since it was first launched in Dresden in 1996 based on the idea of bringing together clinicians and basic scientist. The aim of these interdisciplinary symposia has been to exchange knowledge and ideas in order improve our understanding and treatment of middle ear disorders and hearing impairment.

Thus, the symposium will cover a larger range of important aspects of the normal, the diseased, and the reconstructed middle ear. The presentations will include key note speakers as well as we emphasize on free papers. According to tradition these symposia do not contain parallel sessions in order to enhance the intensive dialog between specialists.
