The conference continues the series of previous conferences held in Banff (Canada) in 2017, Lausanne (Switzerland) in 2012, Nottingham (UK) in 2006, and Magdeburg (Germany) in 2003, 2009, 2014, 2021, and 2022. From 21-26 September 2025, Maastricht University is hosting ICAC.

The scientific programme, organised by a group of renowned international colleagues and by members of the Maastricht Brain Imaging Centre, will cover a wide range of topics and will provide unique opportunities to discuss current ideas of auditory cortex functions and concepts in humans and animals. In addition to keynote lectures and main talks, there will be short presentations and ample time for posters and for discussions, including possibilities for meetings of PhD students and young investigators with the keynote and main speakers.

The Crown Plaza in the historic city centre of Maastricht, on the banks of the river Maas will be the venue for this edition. We will seek to provide several travel stipends and awards and will offer support for childcare and hearing-impaired participants. Here you will find more information about Maastricht, how to get there and where to stay.
