On behalf of the International Society for Otitis Media we are very privileged to announce the 19th International Symposium on Recent Advances in Otitis Media (RAOM 2017) to be held on the Gold Coast, Australia from 4 – 8 June 2017.

The Symposium will bring together international and Australian experts to share knowledge of recent science and clinical practice for otitis media. The program will address diagnosis, prevention strategies, treatment, epidemiology, pathogenesis, microbiology, immunology, complications and sequelae, animal models and otitis media in Indigenous and high risk populations. The program will include keynote and concurrent oral presentations, poster sessions, a trade exhibition, as well as social events. Delegates will have the opportunity to share recent research, discuss ideas and collaborate with professionals from different fields of otitis media, across the globe.

The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, the venue for RAOM 2017, is located in the heart of the Gold Coast steps away from the famous Broadbeach sand and surf. The attractions of the Gold Coast are diverse and colourful in nature; beaches with unique beauty, fantastic foreshore areas and walks, a high-rise dominated skyline, exhilarating theme parks and a world heritage rainforest waiting for your exploration.

We are looking forward to your participation in the RAOM 2017 Symposium and welcoming you to the Gold Coast. We anticipate that you will enjoy, to the fullest extent, the unique Australian experience here on the sunny Gold Coast.
