On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to Madrid and to the XXXI Bárány Society meeting to be held on September 6th-9th, 2020.
We are very proud that this prestigious event will take place for the first time in Spain. Madrid was visited by Robert Bárány in 1923 where he came to meet the also Nobel laureate Santiago Ramón y Cajal. During that visit he met the young medical student and promisory researcher Rafael Lorente de No. The relevance of that historical fact came to be beyond a teaching course, a simple friendship meeting, to be one of the foundational moments of neurotology.
The Congress will focus on major breakthroughs and advances in Vestibular Medicine and will provide an innovative and comprehensive overview of the latest research developments primarily in the areas of molecular biology, neurophysiology and imaging diagnosis, medical and surgical treatment and rehabilitation. Some of these goals will be accomplished during the satellite meeting on Vestibular Science in the city of Granada that will be held on September 4th-5th, 2020, before the main meeting.
