Dear Friends and Colleagues,    

It is our great honor and privilege to organize the 12th conference of Tinnitus Research Initiatives, held from May 17 to 19, 2019 in Taiwan. We hereby cordially invite all of you to participate in the special international event focusing exclusively on tinnitus research. The conference will be the first TRI in Asia, and will maintain its tradition as a platform of cutting-edge for scholars with different backgrounds who are interested in tinnitology. The major theme of this year is “A Renaissance: Novel Concepts in Tinnitus”, which will cover a wide range of interesting and challenging aspects of tinnitus. We believe that the event will be as exciting as previous ones for every attendee.

Tinnitus has troubled our patients and doctors since we started our otological practice 30 years ago. At that time, very little attention was paid to this complaint and related treatment. Dr. Lai began his long journal of quest for a solution since 30 years ago. We have been followers of masters in the field, attended numerous workshops, meetings, and almost every TRI and ITS. We employed every novel treatment for our patients. In 2012, we recruited some otologists and audiologists who are interested in tinnitus to establish the Taiwan Tinnitus Association, and now is the time that we contribute to the global society of tinnitus research.     

Taipei is a vibrant city to visit. It has the prosperity of a metropolis and yet maintains the friendly, convenient and safe atmosphere of a smaller town. Many hot tourist spots such as Taipei 101 and National Palace Museum are located nearby. Most importantly, don’t miss the world-renowned Taiwanese cuisine during your visit. May is also a good season to visit Taipei, as it will not be too warm and humid. I assure you that you will have a most pleasant and memorable visit to Asia. Finally, once again, we welcome you to the 2019 TRI in Taipei!
