The International Symposium on Hearing (ISH) is held every three years (when there is no global pandemic) in Europe since 1969. This interdisciplinary meeting brings together established researchers as well as young talents specializing in psychophysics, physiology and models of hearing. Historically, its aim was to stimulate discussion on the physiological mechanisms underlying auditory perception and provides the basis for a better understanding of auditory function. Modelling approaches complement the experimental studies and serve as a framework for interpreting the results and developing new experimental paradigms. The topics cover fundamental concepts of neural coding and signal processing at various levels along the auditory pathway, consequences for auditory perception in various acoustic environments, as well as implications for behavioural and cognitive aspects of auditory perception ,and compensation strategies for people with hearing impairment. The 2022 meeting is in line with its predecessors, with emphasis on psychoacoustics, physiology of hearing, and auditory modelling, from the ear to the brain.
