Audiology at the ASHA Convention 

The 2023 ASHA Convention will be an in-person event in Boston, November 16–18, 2023. There will be virtual offerings, and ASHA is expanding the use of the popular iPosters platform to host both interactive poster presentations, technical sessions, and the new technical demos. These sessions will be available for anyone to view between November 9–29; however, you can only claim continuing education credit for them if you are registered. There will be a lower virtual-only registration rate this year! Bookmark this page—we’ll keep updating information. Also, check the Convention Schedule at a Glance.

Following are some highlights of what's new this year: 

  • The Welcome Reception returns to the Exhibit Hall on Wednesday, November 15 from 4:30–6:30 p.m.
  • A full schedule of sessions will be offered on Saturday, and the Exhibit Hall will be open until 1:00 p.m., so you have more time to take advantage of all the ASHA Convention has to offer!
  • Technical demos will provide an opportunity to learn how to perform a treatment technique or diagnostic method, or how to use a piece of equipment or software application.
  • Pre-Convention workshops will focus on big-picture topics such as leading innovation and design thinking, along with traditional professional education courses.
  • The Convention Program Committee will be identifying “Changemaker” sessions to highlight innovation in the professions.
  • Master classes are priced lower this year!
  • In keeping with our innovation theme, the 2023 Research Symposium will focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI). The Research Symposium on Hearing will include presentations on using AI to improve audiological research and care, and machine learning techniques to manage and assess dizzy patients.
  • Proof of COVID-19 vaccination will not be required this year; however, we strongly recommend that all attendees are up-to-date on their vaccinations.
