Irish Otolaryngological Head & Neck Society (IOS)
62nd Annual Conference
October 2021

The annual IOS conference will be held on Saturday 2nd October 2021. As a result of current Covid restrictions, and in the interest of public safety, it has been decided to hold the meeting virtually. Despite this, a very exciting programme has been planned for the event. The first half of the morning will consist of free paper presentations. These will be followed by three invited guest speaker lectures. The ‘Wilde Discourse’ will then be delivered by Professor Milind Kirtane, from Mumbai, India. Following a lunch break there will be a second session of trainee contributions in the afternoon. The President, Professor Nash Patil, and his wife Anita, wish to promote a green theme this year, and with this in mind, all delegates will be requested to make a contribution of €5 as part of their registration fee. The monies thus collected will be used by the IOS to plant trees, and appropriate documentation will be issued in this regard. We would like to invite you to participate in our exciting academic program, and very much look forward to seeing you on the day.
