Dear Friends and Colleagues, On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to Cairo and to the Second Ain Shams ORL-HNS Academy Meeting. The ﬁrst meeting was a great success and we intend to make this one even better. The meeting has been designed to provide not only an innovative and comprehensive overview of the latest research developments but also practice-oriented and educational themes. Many distinguished local and international experts have joined the faculty and will take part in this Meeting. Workshops, instructional courses and interactive sessions will allow attendees a closer contact with experts and peers. I hope that you will enjoy the meeting and that your interaction with your colleagues from many diﬀerent countries will stimulate a creative exchange of ideas and will be personally rewarding. I also hope and trust that you will enjoy your visit to the very beautiful and exciting city of Cairo, the heart of Egypt and the Middle East giving all the chance to explore its mysteries and its fascinating surroundings. With all my friendly regards until we meet in October 2016.
