Dear Friends & Colleagues,
Ahlan wa Sahlan! Marhaba! Welcome back!
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am delighted to invite you to the 8th Emirates Otorhinolaryngology Audiology and Communication Disorders Congress. This year, we are joining forces with the Austrian ENT Society to present to you an international congress which would cover all aspects of Otorhinolaryngology, Audiology & Communication Disorders. The Congress will be held in Dubai, UAE from 17-19 January 2018, at the Intercontinental Hotel, Dubai Festival City.
The 2017 Emirates Rhinology & Otology Congress was attended by 2000 delegates' from around the globe. The astounding success of the previous congress motivated us to strive for a bigger and better congress this year and thus, we have gathered a world-class panel of expert speakers to address you from both, international and regional communities. This congress will provide you with a platform to share experiences and discuss breakthroughs in various specialist fields and a necessary criterion to successfully assess & expand your own practices. We have included keynote lectures, round table discussions, instructional courses, video sessions and abstract sessions covering a wide array of topics for you to be introduced to the latest technologies and techniques in the field of ENT.
The 2018 congress will also have several live surgical pre-congress workshops on state of the art anatomical specimens. From the wide array of presentations submitted to us by the research committee, the scientific committee will choose the best ones to be presented during the congress and the best presentations will be recognized and awarded.
We have kept the registration fee at affordable rates to encourage the participation of young & upcoming practitioners and scientists. The congress venue is conveniently located in the center of the city, close to the airport, metro stations and shopping destinations. We have great pride in welcoming you to Dubai, the true cosmopolitan city of the world, offering a kaleidoscope of attractions. We are confident that this congress will exceed your expectations, offering an exciting scientific event as well as an enjoyable social and cultural experience.
We look forward to meeting you all in Dubai in January 2018 for one of the best scientific gathering in the region.
