There have been many recent exciting developments in the field of Rhinology & Otology, which we plan to examine and discuss in this conference. Our aim is to shed the light on these advancements. This three day conference will provide a comprehensive update of the advances in these fields. Through both lectures and interactive workshops, the speakers will clarify the important issues surrounding assessment and management of these disorders.

This scientific activity will discuss important issues regarding the diagnosis and management of these common disorders. It will utilize and encourage the use of a multidisciplinary approach to educate clinicians about current and controversial disorders. In addition, it will provide an opportunity for healthcare providers to become familiar with the key elements of the updated guidelines and incorporate them into their clinical practice.

The organizing committee has already done a marvelous job preparing every detail of this event. The scientific program will consist of special and keynote lectures, panel discussions, and workshop sessions. This will be a great chance to meet colleagues from different corners of the world to share clinical experiences and developments in the field of Rhinology & Otology.
