In April 2003, more than 700 clinicians and researchers convened the Ninth Symposium on Cochlear Implants in Children in Washington, DC. Sponsored by the Listening Center at Johns Hopkins and The River School of Washington, DC, the symposium served as an international forum on the challenges and opportunities found in current practices of early cochlear implantation, addressing a range of issues of importance to early-onset deafness and its rehabilitation. This issue of the Archives of Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery is dedicated to the highlights of this conference.
