Dear Friends and Colleagues    

It is a great pleasure to invite you to the 11th Tinnitus Research Initiative (TRI) Meeting and TINNET conference, taking place from March 14th to 16th, 2018 in Regensburg, Germany.

We are witnessing a time period in tinnitus research with rapid developments of basic research, new clinical strategies for tinnitus treatment and enormous growth in technical innovations. Both public funding and industrial investments for tinnitus research have largely increased during the last few years. This development is also accompanied by raising awareness for tinnitus in society and increased attention of public and social media.

The conference entitled "Disruptive Innovations in Tinnitus" will give you a great opportunity to learn about the details of major breakthroughs in tinnitus. It will be a platform for knowledge-sharing, high-level scientific exchange, and inter-disciplinary networking for scientists, clinicians and technicians.

For students and early-career researchers The European School for Interdisciplinary Tinnitus (ESIT) will be hosting a special one-day mini conference on 13 Mar 2018. Open to all! This is an official satellite event to the 11th TRI conference, Regensburg, Germany. More details to follow.

Looking forward! - to meet you at the 11th TRI meeting in Regensburg in 2018.
