Welcome Note

Dear Colleagues and Friends!

It is a great honour that we can organize the upcoming congress of the Neurootological and Equilibriometric Society (NES). We are cordially inviting you to the 48th NES Congress on behalf of the Technical and Scientific Organization Committee of the Society. The meeting will take place on the 7th to the 8th of October 2021. 

Our intention was to arrange the congress in Paphos, Cyprus. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the congress will now be organized using a virtual model. The difficulties of the oversea traveling and planning the accommodation do not give us any other possibility than an online congress. However, next year we will organize safe, COVID-19 –free teaching courses with personal attendance, including sightseeing and tours in Cyprus. Attendants of this online congress will have the opportunity to take part live online, as well as offline later. All congress contributions will be available online for congress participants for three months after the event. Waiving the registration fee, PhD students and resident medical doctors from around the world will have the opportunity to present their work orally or in a e-poster session while developing their technical communication skills and networking with the persons who are interested in neurootology and equilibriometry.

As a main international conference in the field of neurootology and equilibriometrics, the 48th NES Congress is expected to stimulate further research in this field through the exchange of ideas and lively debate on state-of-the-art knowledge, as well as on knowledge gaps to be filled. The 48th NES Congress will feature plenary talks by world-renowned scientists and a variety of oral and e-poster sessions, focusing on the most pressing issues in our field of medicine. 

Main topics to be discussed during the Congress:

  • Clinical Neurootology, including pharmacotherapy and physical therapy
  • Emergency diagnosis and treatment of vertigo and tinnitus
  • Equilibriometry
  • Audiometry
  • Tinnitology
  • Olfactometry, Gustometry
  • Neurosensorial degenerations in old age patients    
  • COVID-19 related olfactory dysfunctions
  • COVID-19 related hearing and balance disorders
  • Electromagnetic fields and  applications in neurootology
  • Free Papers

We will also provide you with a taste of the Cypriot culture in the form of online events.
We are looking forward seeing you in October!
