4th World Congress on EES in Kyoto to Move to April 2022

All of us around the world are facing unprecedented challenges as we band together to fight COVID 19. This disease has upended all of our lives, particularly those of us in the health care field. It is against this background that I have, in my position as the Chairperson of the 4th WEES, decided to move our gathering from April 2021 to April 2022, specifically April 5th to April 8th.

While we have all had to make hard decisions in our personal and professional lives, I am very comfortable with this decision in light of the uncertainty surrounding the future course of the global pandemic as well as international travel restrictions in the upcoming year into 2021.

While COVID 19 has taught us all that we cannot predict the future, I am hopeful in inviting you to enjoy Kyoto against the backdrop of its gorgeous cherry blossoms in a post-COVID 19 world in April 2022.

I hope to see you there!

Chairperson of the 4th World Congress on EES in Kyoto 2022

・Notes from our chair
Greetings to everyone!

We are starting to gear up for the World Congress on Endoscopic Ear Surgery in Kyoto which will be held in less than a year-and-a-half! It was my pleasure to recently welcome Dr. Aaron Remenschneider from Harvard and his lovely wife Emily to Kyoto where he gave a presentation at the 2019 Japan Audiological Society.

We were able to show them around Kyoto and they were kind enough to describe their impressions of the city in a blog posting. For those of you who are thinking about attending the World Congress, I think that their perspective should give you a good idea of what you could expect on a trip to Kyoto.

I thus invite you to read what they have to say and see if you wouldn’t like to follow in their footsteps!?
