Phonosurgery Symposium

The 2015 Neurosurgery Symposium: is a forward-looking symposium. Simulation, or virtual design, is becoming fully accepted in all fields of engineering and many fields of medicine. Alternative solutions for rebuilding tissue structure and neural control require many trial and error cases, impossible to execute on humans or animals. Even behavioral treatment involves movement of structures with modified control, some of which can be evaluated with virtual design. We expect lively discussion on the utility of these approaches.

Interested professionals may include:

  • Interested in the Care and Recovery of the Voice
  • Speech Language Pathologist
  • Otolaryngologist (ENTs)
  • Vocologists
  • Voice Scientists

The Symposium encourages the submission of abstracts for podium presentations. Please submit your abstract to ps2015@ncvs.org by March 15, 2015.

  • Title
  • Abstract (less than 500 words)
  • Authors (affiliations, contact information and corresponding authors)
  • 1-3 Learning Objectives for the Presentation

  • Please also include in the body of the email a statement about whether or not you would be willing to present in a method that is not the preference indicated in the subject line.
