Welcome to all affiliates! The mission of Special Interest Group (SIG) 6, Hearing and Hearing Disorders: Research and Diagnostics, is to provide the opportunity for communication, collaboration, and education to occur between clinicians and researchers, with the goal of building a bridge between research findings and evidence-based practice related to hearing and balance. I continue to have the privilege to serve as your Coordinator, and for the past two years, I have had the real pleasure of working with the outstanding and diverse individuals that make up the SIG 6 Coordinating Committee. This SIG is comprised of a community of audiologists and hearing scientists interested in an incredibly wide range of clinical and research issues involving the auditory and vestibular systems. Topics of interest include models of hearing, psychoacoustics, auditory processing, effects of genetic and/or environmental agents on the auditory and vestibular systems, tinnitus, diagnosis of hearing and balance disorders, aging and auditory–vestibular function, cognition and hearing loss, and hearing loss prevention and conservation. We welcome all the new affiliates to SIG 6 and all of the returning members and we appreciate your interest in these wide-ranging areas of audiology practice and research.
