Since many years ago Professor Alberto Chinski has dreamed of a World Congress of Pediatric Otolaryngology and now several of us decided it was time for that to become a reality. Over all these years, the Associations and Societies of Pediatric Otolaryngology have grown and consolidated more and more and we, as specialists, have become references in the field: the Interamerican Association of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology (IAPO), the American Society of Pediatric Otolaryngology (ASPO), the European Society of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology (ESPO), Asian Societies, and finally next year the joint African Society of Otolaryngology will be presented (PENTAFRICA).
In many countries throughout the continents, pediatric otolaryngologists have a greater participation in congresses, conferences, courses, and publications every day. It is time for all of us who love this profession, work with children, want to teach, want to learn and share experiences, and dream of a united community of pediatric otolaryngology, to make this happen and finally meet.
Undoubtedly, Professor Tania Sih, as the president of this Congress, with her organizational capacity, her tireless drive and work for the development of the specialty, will give special brilliance to the congress.
With great expectations Buenos Aires is looking forward to receiving you all. We hope you will enjoy some wonderful days in this friendly city.
