The new activity of IFOS (International Federation of Otorhinolaryngological Societies) is to support world scientific and educational activities of all ORL HNS subspecialties. As you may know the IFOS World ORL HNS Congress is held every four years and the next one will be June 1-5, 2013 in Seoul, Korea. In the three years between the world ORL HNS congresses we would like to organize or support international otologic, rhinologic and head and neck events.
The 5th World Congress of the International Federation of Head and Neck Oncologic Societies (IFHNOS) will be held in New York, July 26-30, 2014. This will serve as an ideal opportunity to be supported by IFOS to invite National ORL societies and their members from all over the world to join this meeting to learn a lot from the internationally acknowledged experts in this field. Tumors of the sinuses, skull base, oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, thyroid gland, salivary glands and neck metastasis are a significant part of otorhinolaryngology practice in every corner of the globe. Modern diagnostic tools, theoretical knowledge, surgical skills, and principles of non-surgical treatment will be the subject of panels, scientific presentations, instructional courses and video-sessions. I take this opportunity to invite all those who participate in the management of these multidisciplinary problems to attend the 5th World Congress of IFHNOS which is supported by IFOS.
Secretary General of IFOS
