chairmans report

The big news is that Registration is now open.

The Registration Brochure can be found on the website at www.wfosydney.com.

It contains the Scientific Programme including pre-congress courses, the Allied Dental Professions and Staff Programme, the Social Programme and the tours available for accompanying persons. It also has links to popular commercially available tours and to courses organized by our major sponsors.

The only way to register is on-line.

Please follow the simple instructions on the website. The cut-off date for early-bird registration is 2 October 09, so make sure you register early. There are some very good deals available right now with hotels in Sydney and airlines that fly into Sydney.

I remind all readers that the Call for Abstracts will close on 30 June 09.

The Scientific Programme Committee will select a further 76 short (10 minute) lectures and the posters out of the submitted abstracts.

I am pleased to announce that the American Association of Orthodontists will host a reception for Post-graduate Students and Residents during the 7th IOC. Students will be sent invitations after they register.

On behalf of the Sydney International Orthodontic Congress Committee (SIOCC) I have written to all WFO affiliated societies and associations requesting nominations for the Champion Orthodontic Nurse Competition. This competition was very successful in Paris. Entrants must submit an abstract and the finalists will be chosen by SIOCC to give a 10-minute presentation in Sydney.

An additional attraction for registrants at the 7th IOC is the recent announcement that the Edinburgh Tattoo will be coming to Sydney at almost the same time as the 7th IOC. This is only the second time the Tattoo has traveled away from Scotland and is a bonus for visitors to Sydney next February.

I hope that all WFO affiliated societies and associations will ensure that their websites have a link to the 7th IOC website. This is important now that registration is open. If SIOCC can help please contact through the website.

We remain determined that this will be a congress and holiday that you will never forget. We hope you will come join us for an outstanding week of education and enjoyment.

Sydney International Orthodontic Congress Committee
