CONVENER’S INVITATION

The 67th ASOHNS Annual Scientific Meeting is being held in Adelaide in March 2017, in the newly redeveloped Adelaide Convention Centre. As convener, I am pleased to invite all ASOHNS members to attend what promises to be an excellent meeting.

Our focus is on exploring the latest subspecialty knowledge with particular relevance to the general otolaryngologist.

We are being joined by five prominent overseas keynote speakers in the fields of Sleep, Rhinology, Facial Plastics, Otology / Neuro-otology and Head and Neck Surgery.

The theme of our meeting is “Ingenuity at Work”, reflecting the practical application of state of the art knowledge to our day to day practice.

I look forward to welcoming you to Adelaide in 2017.

PRESIDENT'S WELCOME

On behalf of ASOHNS I extend a very warm welcome to you and your partner to attend our 67th Annual Scientific Meeting in Adelaide in 2017.

The ASOHNS ASM is renowned for delivering excellent opportunities for continued learning and development and peer interaction for our members, trainees and visitors. The 2017 meeting will be no exception.

Overall, the program’s content and structure will continue its approach in combining much-needed practical, “how to do it” information with updates on the latest techniques and developments in our specialty.

The main scientific program will be supported by specialist, interactive breakfast sessions and satellite meetings that offer more relaxed and practical opportunities for increasing skills and exchanging information and ideas with presenters and fellow attendees.

For visitors travelling from interstate and overseas, we encourage you to bring your partners and families and extend your stay, as Adelaide and its environs are well worth the visit.

The city of Adelaide, capital of the state of South Australia, is aptly named the ‘Festival City’, for its artistic ambience, many carnivals and cultural events, vibrant cafes, diverse restaurants and world-famous wineries.

The main wine growing areas and most of the beautiful beaches are all within easy driving distance of the city. Further afield, Australia’s natural and unique wildlife can be viewed and enjoyed at various wildlife parks, visiting Kangaroo Island and cruising the Murray River.

South Australia generally enjoys a Mediterranean-style climate with dry, warm summers and mild winters. March is an ideal time to visit, with slightly cooler autumn temperatures while the weather remains sunny, warm and pleasant.

I look forward to welcoming you all to the ASOHNS ASM 2017.
