* THIS EVENT IS NOT ORGANIZED BY SBORL
I think that the past year-and-a-half has taught all of us around the world that nothing scheduled is set in stone! When I moved the 4th World Congress on EES in Kyoto to April 2022, I was confident that the challenge of COVID 19 would be overcome by then, and that international travel restrictions would be lifted. However, the last couple of months have made me realize that that timeline was too optimistic. In light of the spread of the delta variant and increasing case numbers around the world, I have made the decision to once again move the date of the 4th World Congress on EES in Kyoto.
Our new date is now December 5th to the 8th of 2022. While I realize that this date is close to the end-of-the-year holiday season, it was the best choice out of the available dates for our venue. The weather in Kyoto in early December is mild and while we will miss the Kyoto cherry blossoms, the city should still be beautifully bathed in the fall foliage including its stunning maple trees.
I thus ask everyone to pencil this new date and cross your fingers that we will have COVID 19 under control by then. While our conference is important to those of us in the field of endoscopic ear surgery, it pales in importance to the good health and well-being of the world community at large. Let us all continue to work together to defeat COVID!
I hope to see you in Kyoto in December 2022!
Chair of the 4th World Congress on EES in Kyoto 2022
