President’s Message


We are pleased to inform you that we are hosting, from September 6-8, 2013, in São Paulo, the 8th IAPO International Symposium on Pediatric ENT. As in all previous editions of these bi annual meetings we will have the participation of renowned faculty experts from five continents. The goal, as usual, is updating knowledge and new approaches to care from the dissertations of the many professionals attending the Congress. 

In this occasion, we have excellent news for the participants of the 8th IAPO Symposium.  It will be held, simultaneously the 2nd IAPO International Symposium on Pediatric Hearing Disorders as well the 1st IAPO International Symposium on Pediatric Airways, September 6, 2013 – at no additional charge. At this date you may choose to attend: a) the Symposium Pre-Courses, or b) participate in sessions devoted either to hearing disorders or c) pediatric airways. The three activities will occur simultaneously but in three different rooms at the same venue. 

The sessions of the 8th IAPO International Symposium on Pediatric ENT (September 7 -8) will occur in a single room as in the previous symposia. 

The symposium will feature 50 international speakers and the conferences will have simultaneous translation to Portuguese, Spanish and English. 

Just as in the previous symposia we will serve lunch prepared by a renowned caterer and the cost is already covered in the registration fee. 

We have made every possible effort to prepare an outstanding program that will provide update academic knowledge and present the most advanced techniques that will enhance your practice.
