Presidential Council Members meeting, Vienna, February 2024.

John Russell, President of the Congress. 

As I write this update, there are less than four months to go to the 7th Congress of European ORL Head and Neck Surgery in Dublin and the excitement is building. On 19 February 2024, Michael Kuo and I (left) attended a presidential council meeting of the Confederation of CEORL-HNS in Vienna and discussed our progress with the council members. 

Registrations are increasing day by day and there are now 2252 delegates from over 80 countries signed up, and 880 faculty members attending. Apart from the 16 parallel sessions covering all aspects of otorhinolaryngology-head and neck surgery, we have added seven lunchtime mentoring sessions. This is a relatively new concept whereby an eminent surgeon from one of seven sub-specialties spends an hour sharing their experience, wisdom and advice with colleagues starting their careers. We are also very pleased to have received 1232 abstracts, which have been evaluated, resulting in 422 oral presentations.  

Continuous medical education (CME) has become an important part in a surgeon’s professional life and CME credits are now a requirement in most countries. We were delighted to hear that the congress has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) for a maximum of 22.5 European CME credits (ECMEC®). 

We had a successful site visit to the Convention Centre Dublin (CCD) on 21 February 2024. Key members of Mondial, our professional congress organiser, and I attended to ensure that all aspects of the meeting from catering to information technology (IT) to industry were covered.

We have organised two exciting social events for you. The first is a 5K fun run on Monday 17 June. This will be the third time for the event. It will start around 6.30am to allow fast delegates to get back in time for the first session of the morning. The second one is the Congress Networking Event, which will take place at Ireland’s biggest tourist attraction, the Guinness Storehouse, on the Monday evening. We have already sold 800 tickets and this night promises to be the social highlight.  

Please hurry and register today otherwise you will miss out on the biggest European congress of otorhinolaryngology-head and neck surgery this year! 

Second update:

Dear friends, there are now only six weeks to the 7th Confederation Congress of European Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. Registrations are increasing day by day and there are now 2500 delegates from over 80 countries already signed up with 880 faculty members attending.

It is very important that you register before 15 May as this is the last day of the standard registration fee.

There are two exciting pre-congress courses not to be missed on Saturday 15 June. Professor Ahmed Geneid will be hosting a workshop on unilateral vocal cord paralysis and will have expert speakers from Holland, UK, Austria and Finland. They will address the different management options available. Check out this short video:


Professor Lucy Dalton will be hosting an otology and hearing implant workshop in collaboration with Medel. The delegates will have an opportunity to perform temporal bone drilling on artificial specimens and also experience and test a wide range of implants from middle ear to bone-anchored to cochlear. Please watch her short video:

The opening ceremony is taking place at 5pm on Saturday 19 June in our wonderful 2000-seater auditorium. You will have an opportunity to learn a little about the confederation and meet our president, Professor Per Caye-Thomasen. We have purposefully kept it short to about 30 minutes so as to avoid boredom. 

After the short ceremony we will proceed down to the exhibition hall for a well-deserved welcome reception. Start your conference well by attending one of our pre-congress courses and don’t miss the opening ceremony.

I am looking forward to meeting you at the biggest European congress of otorhinolaryngology-head and neck surgery.
