On behalf of the Organising Committee of the 10th European Symposium on Paediatric Cochlear Implantation, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to the historical city of Athens, Greece, the land of the Father of Medicine, Hippocrates. Since 1961 – the first single channel implantation – until today we have seen great changes and remarkable outcomes in paediatric cochlear implantation that nobody could have ever guessed. Therefore, it is a great opportunity to celebrate these 50 years and ponder upon what we have accomplished as well as plan together the future developments.

Delegates from all over Europe and around the world will give lectures, seminars, workshops, panel discussions, and presentations on the latest frontiers of research and achievements on paediatric cochlear implantation.

The multi-disciplinary approach will be emphasized and special workshops will focus on speech and language therapy and education. We will share the latest developments on surgery and technology but there will also be special days devoted to teachers for the deaf and speech pathologists whose contribution is so important.

Beyond the scientific activities, a visit in Athens will give you the opportunity to walk among the city's 2500 year old historical monuments such as the Acropolis, the Ancient Agora, and the Temple of Zeus as well as to admire the variety of exhibits in the archeological museums. You will be able to feel the historical continuity from ancient times to the modern age and to be amazed by the light, flavours, places, the Islands of the Aegean Sea, the beautiful beaches, all these unique landscapes which blossom out in Greece in early summer as May promises. So, don't forget to spend at least a few hours to enjoy your stay in Greece as a cultural and tourist experience too.

Of course, we will have all the time we need to develop social and interpersonal relationships and friendships in order to promote cooperation in the field on an international level and to give the sensation that together we will walk towards the progress of the science. I wish all of you an unforgettable congress and a most enjoyable stay in Athens.

With cordial regards,

Thomas P. Nikolopoulos, MD, DM, PhD
