  • IFOS STATEMENT

    blue-barre

    The whole democratic world is deeply concerned and shocked by the aggressive Russian military invasion and war against Ukraine supported by Belarus. Civilian human beings are suffering from totalitarian aggression. Huge damage on civil constructions, roads and power stations are the tragic outcomes of this nonsense action. Many organizations show their negative attitude towards the Russian organizations being a member of international bodies. Russian and Belarussian societies for ORL and HNS are also the members of IFOS. After discussion in the IFOS Executive committee, Regional Secretaries and IFOS Counselors we decided to take following measures to show very clearly the IFOS position regarding this international unaccepted situation:


    •  IFOS strongly protests and refuses the Russian aggressive invasion to Ukraine supported by Belarus
    •  IFOS will stop any training and educational activities in the territory of Russia and Belarus
    •  IFOS will not exclude the Russian Belarussian ORL HNS Societies from IFOS unless the Russian and Belarussian ORL HNS societies openly support the Russian military invasion to Ukraine
    •  IFOS will welcome individual Russian and Belarussian otorhinolaryngologists in the IFOS international activities.

  • IFOS World Congress in 2023, Dubai

     At the end of Dec. 2021 the Canadian ORL society announced that they would not organize the IFOS Congress in Vancouver in June 2022.

    There were several serious reasons for this decision and we had to accept it.

    After discussing the problem with the IFOS Executive Committee members the IFOS Board has decided to move the IFOS Congress to Dubai on January 16-21, 2023.

    The UAE ORL Society and GCC countries accepted our proposal. Immediately the Scientific Committee started the congress program preparation. One year is a really short time to prepare the Congress so we have to work really hard to complete an attractive scientific program which is crucial for the Congress success.

  • IFOS 2022 Vancouver Cancelled

    blue-barre

    The COVID-19 pandemic continues to thwart our efforts to hold an in-person medical conference of the size of the IFOS World Congress, scheduled originally for June 2021 in Vancouver, then delayed to June 2022.

    In consultation with the IFOS Executive, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the World Congress for Vancouver in June 2022.

    In reaching this decision we considered both the restrictions on us as the host country, and also the restrictions and impediments to travel for those who would need to make the trip from abroad.

    We would like to thank all the organizers (chairs, committee members, planned speakers and panelists) for their time and effort spent on this event.

     

    Sincerely, CSO-HNS Executive Committee:

     Dr. Brian Westerberg, President

    Dr. Ian Witterick, Immediate Past President

    Dr. Hadi Seikaly, Ist Vice-President

    Dr. F. Gigi Osler, 2nd Vice-President

    Dr. Sam Daniel, 2nd Vice-President Elect

    Dr. Jodi Jones, Secretary

    Dr. Paolo Campisi, Treasurer

    Dr. Fred Kozak, Past President / IFOS Congress Program Chair
