Project: Research project

Project Details


The purpose of this application is to request funding for a five-year
period to continue the international conferences, simposia, and workshops
held in conjunction with the Midwinter Meeting of the Association for
Research in Otolaryngology (ARO). The aims of these conferences are to
identify emerging areas of research and technologies; review and update
relevant but peripheral areas of research; educate young researchers;
encourage the participation of international scientists; discuss
controversial research issues not usually covered by more traditional
meetings; encourage the cross-breeding of disciplines to stimulate unique
research approaches; and propose ways of solving, current problems in
communication disorders.

Plans for the 1985 symposia are described in detail, and the names of
international scientists who have agreed to participate are listed. The
topics for the 1986 symposia are specified and the program briefly
described. Since it would be premature to state specifically what topics
will be chosen for the remaining three years, a list of 22 suggested topics
has been compiled.

Timely symposia topics are chosen by the ARO President-Elect from members'
suggestions and with advice of the ARO Council. The programs are reviewed
by a committee consisting of the PI and his co-investigators to assure
their continued quality and timely significance to communicate disorders
and the mission of NINCDS.

A five-year request is being made to allow ARO to plan the conferences so
as to recruit the best national and international participants and to
organize the conferences well in advance. It will also allow the ARO to
present timely international conferences at a low cost and in an informal
atmosphere which encourages free exchange of information and the
participation of young researchers as well as established career
