Message from Our Chair

4th World Congress on Endoscopic Ear Surgery

Prof. Seiji Kakehata

To the EES Worldwide Community,

I hope that you are all doing well. I would like to take this opportunity to update everyone on the status of the EES2022 in Kyoto.

The 4th World Congress on Endoscopic Ear Surgery will be held, as scheduled, from December 5th to the 8th, 2022 in Kyoto Japan with the Satellite Symposium held from December 12th to the 13th in Yamagata Japan. Both events will be held live face-to-face with no live streaming.

Thus, it is now time to start making your plans to attend!

The Japanese government has begun to lift restrictions on business visitors from overseas and there is talk of allowing tourists to enter in the near future. We will provide further information at a later date on the visa situation, but also please check with the local Japanese embassy in your country for further information and updates as the Congress date approaches.

The Call for Abstracts will be opened from May 12th, and I am looking forward to seeing what everyone has been working on in the years since our previous World Congress in Boston.

We will also be announcing the opening of registration for the 4th World Congress on Endoscopic Ear Surgery in the near future. Please stay tuned for further information in this regard!

It is an understatement to say that it has been a longer than usual journey to the 4th World Congress with many unforeseen challenges and bumps in the road. I am truly grateful for everyone’s understanding as we have navigated those challenges.

I am optimistic that we will be able to raise a glass of sake (or your beverage of choice) in December to toast the success of the 4th World Congress on Endoscopic Ear Surgery in Kyoto.

Seiji Kakehata, M.D., Ph.D
Congress Chair
