Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Welcome to RhinoAlex2012, the forth annual standalone rhinology meeting organized by the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Alexandria Faculty of Medicine and the Alexandria Society of Rhinology (ASR). The practice and science of Rhinology have immensely and speedily expanded during the past few decades, and we are all striving to update and refine our practical experience and theoretical knowledge.
The primary and, probably the only, aim of ASR is to create a new venue for communicating together, learning about new advances and techniques in the field of rhinology and exchanging our ideas and experience. Membership of ASR is not limited to rhinologists practicing or residing in Alexandria. We do welcome new members from all over Egypt and we are sure they will enrich the Society and the meeting. Applications for membership of the ASR are available, free of charge, at the registration desk.
I do hope that this meeting will be a success. I also hope it will complement, and add to, the excellent rhinology meetings and workshops organized by other colleagues. I wish you will enjoy the meeting and your stay in Alexandria, and I wish you all the best.
