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.
