The 13th Asia-Oceania ORL-HNS Congress, international toast of the year in the field of otolaryngology, convened March 19-22 at the Taipei International Convention Center.
This time, the Asia-Oceania ORL-HNS Congress was organized parallel with the 5th Asian Pediatric Otolaryngology Conference and the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Taiwan Otolaryngological Society. It truly was a grand event for Taiwan’s ENT medical community.
The first Asia-Oceania ORL-HNS Congress began in 1965 in South Korea and now rotates every four years to a different country. Taiwan first organized the congress in 1971, more than 40 years ago; therefore, hosting the event once again was greatly significant to Taiwan’s academic circle.
With the theme “Asia Oceania First”, the congress kicked off with several ENT-related educational courses and seminars, inviting participants to discuss the latest knowledge and technology with experts and scholars around the world. Formal scientific conferences were launched on the second and third days and included keynote speeches, debates, round tables, workshops, and poster presentations. The conferences covered topics on various ENT-related areas, including general medical research of the ear, nose, throat, head and neck, skull, otology, audiology, sleep medicine, language, dysphagia, and pediatrics. The congress provided a significant platform in Asian countries for the discussion of ENT and oncology of the head and neck, promoted international academic exchange in ENT-related medical fields, enhanced research and treatment standards, and assisted domestic scholars with expanding international collaboration and exchange in medical education.
