Dear Colleagues,

as  President  of  the  European  Laryngological  Society, I would like to announce the 11th Congress of our Society, to be held in Genoa, Italy, on 8-11 June 2016.

The principal goal of this conference will be to present some of the latest breakthroughs in Laryngology and related disciplines, to bring together both young and experienced scientists from all regions of the world, and to open up avenues for research and collaborations both at regional and global levels. Thank to the active and close cohoperation of the Presidentail and Scientific Councils, most of the emerging scientific topics and every major aspect of our subspecialty will be presented and discussed.

The Keynote Lectures will be focused, among the others, on topics like bioendoscopy, imaging, neurolaryngology, laryngo-tracheal stenosis, laryngeal transplantation and oncology, and followed by Round Tables with clinical cases discussion.

It will be also feasible to be trained in different phonosurgical procedures and to test the most sofisticated endoscopic devices and surgical tools during the Hand-on Labs and Instructional Courses.

European and international experts have been invited as Members of the Faculty in order to reinforce our relationships with the ALA, ABEA, IAP, and SIL. Growing interest toward our Congress has been expressed by many Colleagues coming from India and South America.

Every effort will be done to combine an outstanding scientific program with pleasant social acitivities in Genoa.

Giorgio Peretti
