2024 Abstract Submission

CAA 2024 Abstract Submission is Closed

Abstracts status notifications will be sent March 2024

Dear CAA Members and Colleagues, 

The California Academy of Audiology Conference Committee is proud to invite clinicians, researchers, current AuD students, and academic professionals to submit an abstract for consideration for inclusion at the CAA 25th Annual Conference: Uniting Audiologists being held September 12-14, 2024 in Irvine, California. 

The 2024 Conference Committee is looking forward to putting together an exciting educational program to include research by our membership and the audiology community. The presentation formats include:

  • General Session Platform Presentations: Innovative and engaging sessions that directly impact clinical audiology practice and practice management. A variety of topics are encouraged to highlight the diversity of the specialties in Audiology.
  • Student Research Forum: Geared toward AuD and PhD students, the Student Research Forum allows several students to present their research project for approximately 20 minutes. The Student Research Forum is open to current CAA Student Members.
  • Poster Presentations: The CAA Poster Session is an opportunity for both audiology professionals and students to share their research or interesting cases. The Poster Session will occur on September 12, 2024 and will be open to all registered attendees to view throughout the conference.
  • Grand Rounds: NEW to 2024! CAA will be accepting applications for Grand Rounds. This feature is an excellent opportunity to share an interesting case with your colleagues. The 2024 Conference Committee will be selecting several cases for presentation during the Grand Rounds session. Each case presentation, including Q&A, will be 10-15 minutes in length.

The 2024 Conference Committee looks forward to engaging with you and reviewing your submissions. Please contact confchair@caaud.org for questions or clarification.

Best Regards,

Shannon Clemons, Au.D.
Melissa Garafalo-Culmer, Au.D.
