This is a development of two Anglo Swedish otology meetings that many of you attended, the first in the Oxford in the UK in 2010 then in Stockholm in 2012. These meetings were both great fun, relaxed events over a weekend with 2 academic sessions and social events with time to get to know each other and find out about otological issues of mutual interest. Many delegates brought their partners along. This time we are inviting the Norwegians, Danes, Finns and Icelanders to join us and the Swedes.

The new meeting will be held in Windsor, 20 miles west of London, and only 20 minutes from Heathrow airport.  The meeting will take place at the Sir Christopher Wren hotel which is a wonderful old hotel overlooking the Thames right in the centre of Windsor. 

The meeting will start on the Friday afternoon to allow time for people to fly into Heathrow that morning. There will be lunch followed by an academic session.  In the academic sessions we will encourage active discussion between the delegates on clinical issues. We are still finalising the academic programme and would appreciate ideas for speakers and volunteers from the Scandinavian countries. There will then be a dinner on the Friday night in the hotel. On the Saturday morning there will be a second academic session. The Saturday afternoon will be free to explore Windsor with an evening meal at Great Fosters, a magnificent Grade 1 listed Elizabethan country house nearby. We have an excellent concessionary rate of £130/£140 single/double per night bed and breakfast at the Christopher Wren hotel which is half the standard rate and excellent value for Windsor in the summer. There is plenty to do in Windsor with the castle and boats trips. Eton College is across the bridge and both Windsor Great Park and Saville Gardens are nearby. For those wanting to take a few extra days London is only 20 miles away. I attach a flyer with links to the accommodation and the booking form. When booking the hotel just mention the meeting or my name to get the discounted rate. 

The meeting will cost £325 for delegates and £200 for accompanying guests. This will include lunch on the Friday and both dinners. We are offering 2 free places to trainees who submit the best academic paper for presentation. They can do this by email to us directly by Feb 28th. [email protected] So please let your trainees know about this. We hope to see you and some of your colleagues at the meeting.  We are now open for bookings.
