History

International Tinnitus Seminar was initiated and first held by Barbara Goldstein and Abraham Shulman in 1979 in New York. Its objective was to foster free exchange of the latest scientific and clinical ideas and findings in tinnitus studies.

During the nearly 40 years since that first Seminar, tinnitus experts have met every three – four years to discuss their newest research results, new diagnostic and therapeutic methods and approaches to tinnitus. This conference is presently the principal international, scientific and clinical event in the field of tinnitus.
