Finland is a young country that celebrated 100 years of independence in 2017. It is rated by The Newsweek in 2010 as the best country in the world. Helsinki, its capital, is throbbing with design, nature, lively events, fresh air, wonderful summers and saunas.
The congress will focus on the main four main topics of our specialty. The study and treatment of voice, speech and language, hearing, and swallowing disorders. As a multidisciplinary specialty, we would like to welcome phoniatricians, laryngologists, otorhinolaryngologists, audiologists, vocologists, speech and language pathologists, acousticians, singing teachers and all those with interest in communication disorders.
