XXXI Bárány Society Meeting: this prestigious event will take place for the first time in Madrid, Spain, on May 9th-11th, 2022. The Congress will focus on major breakthroughs and advances in Vestibular Medicine. Some of these goals will be accomplished during the satellite meeting on Vestibular Science in the city of Granada (May 7th-8th, 2022), before the main meeting
