Dear members of the NES and other soldiers of our discipline of Neurotology,

It gives me great pleasure to officially announce that the 44th Annual Conference of the International Neurotological and Equilibriometric Society will be held in Mumbai, India from 2nd to 4th of March 2017.

Just like the previous annual conferences of the NES, the 44th conference will also focus on showcasing what is the latest and the best and what is ethical and scientifically rational in Neurotology today. Researchers and clinicians from all disciplines of neurotology (basic science, research and development, applied science, clinical, etc) are welcome to present their innovations, insight, and clinical experience that will sharpen our diagnostic skills and improve treatment outcomes for patients suffering from vertigo and hearing disorders.

Neurotology today is a very vast subject comprised of diagnostic neurotology, neuro-radiology, neuro-opthalmology, specialised pharmacotherapy, physical therapy, psychotherapy, general neurology neuro-psychiatry, and related subjects, Mind-boggling changes have taken place in diagnostic and therapeutic neurotology, and all of us are obligated not only to know but also offer to our patients the latest diagnostic / treatment modalities that are available anywhere. We need to keep pace with the rapid changes that are taking place, and that is precisely the objective of this conference.

The biggest of names that you are acquainted with in neurotology and whose publications you always refer to and learn from will all be there in person to update us and enlighten us on the best that we can offer to our patients of vertigo and hearing disorders. The list of invited speakers will be put up in the website at the end of September 2016 when we get confirmations of the many personal invitations mailed to many of the top names in the discipline. In order to get the very best of speakers, the 44th NES is tied up with the 3rd conference of the Vertigo Academy International. I promise you that this will be a gala scientific event that neurotologically initiated persons like you cannot afford to miss.

India has a number of tourist attractions, and we would want you to also savour the many attractions of India in this visit to our vast country. We are organising post conference tours to Goa, Mahabaleswar, Jaipur, Agra, Delhi etc and also some customised tailor made tours according to requests from the participating delegates depending upon the numbers as much as is practical.

Expecting to see you in March 2017 with your presentations, and of course your mobile phones and tablets to record others presentations’ and notebooks to take notes that you will treasure for the next two decades.

Respectfully yours,


Prof Dr. Anirban Biswas
Neuro-otological and Equilibriometric Society
