Bárány Society Meetings

The Bárány Society holds regular international scientific meetings every two years, each time in a different city elected by our members. Every six years, our meeting is held in Uppsala, Sweden.

At each regular meeting, we present three awards: the Bárány gold medal, the Hallpike-Nylen prize and the Hallpike-Nylen medal. For more information, please visit our Awards page.

Bárány Society Courses

At our regular meetings held every two years, a special teaching course is organized. These courses are held at the same time as our main conference. The courses are designed for clinicians, and scientists who are relatively new in the field of neurootology, rehabilitation, and vestibular research.

This year, the first course deals with fundamental and practical aspects relevant for clinicians and scientists:

  • Fundamental aspects of anatomy, physiology, and physics of the vestibular system
  • How to take the history of a patients with vestibular disorders
  • Bedside examination of patients
  • Laboratory testing
  • Update in vestibular syndromes

The second course will focus on the rehabilitation of patients with vestibular disorders.

Conferences of Interest

Vestibular-Oriented Research Meeting 2023
June 25-29, 2023
Boulder, CO, USA (In-person and virtual)

The Vestibular-Oriented Research (VOR) Meeting was created to bring together leading and aspiring researchers from around the world to share and build knowledge, unify our diverse transdisciplinary specialty, and transform and improve interactions within our community as well as within independent and parallel disciplines.

Vestibular-Oriented Research Meeting 2020
The 2020 Vestibular Oriented Meeting was cancelled due to the  COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to keep the vestibular community engaged and showcase the work of those who were accepted to present at the 2020 meeting, all abstracts have been published in the Journal of Vestibular Research.
