97 x 147 92nd EOS Congress • Stockholm, 11–16 June 2016 EOS annual congress returns to Sweden Historic event to be held from 11 to 16 June at Stockholmsmässan AD PRINT DIGITAL EDUCATION EVENTS The DTI publishing group is composed of the world’s leading dental trade publishers that reach more than 650,000 dentists in more than 90 countries. Orthodontists from around Europe are gathering in Stockholm this week for the annual congress of the Euro- pean Orthodontic Society. Being held over five days at Stockholmsmässan, the city’s premier conference and ex- hibition venue, the specialist meeting will once again present the latest re- search and innovations in the field. This year will be the fifth time that the historic meeting is held in Sweden. According to congress chair- man Jan Huggare, an orthodontist and professor at Karolinska Institu- tet’s Department of Dental Medicine in Stockholm, the programme will cover traditional orthodontic topics, as well as focus on medically compro- mised patients and patients’ treat- ment experiences, among other sub- jects. A number of internationally dis- tinguished clinicians will share their expertise on a wide range of topics, including the factors that determine whether orthodontics should be con- ducted with or without orthognathic surgery or whether archwise distrac- tion is possible in alveolar distraction osteogenesis. The presentations will concentrate on the adult patient, as well as the orthodontic treatment of children and adolescents with lingual appliances. The Sheldon Friel Memorial Lec- ture, honouring the organisation’s past president and honorary mem- ber, will be held by University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill adjunct professor Sheldon Peck and deal with the search for orthodontic truth. Also, the winners of the W J B Houston Research Awards, the Beni Solow Award and the award estab- lished in memoriam of the late Prof. Francesca Ada Miotti will be an- nounced. “It is a great honour to host this annual meeting of our orthodontic community, which links the tradi- tions cherished and refined by past Presidents of the Society with the challenges of meeting the expecta- tions of the younger members of our Society,” Huggare said. Founded in 1907 with the goals of advancing all aspects of orthodontics and its relations with the collateral arts and sciences for the public bene- fit, as well as of seeking the further- ance of orthodontics among all branches of the dental profession working in private practice, hospitals and universities throughout Europe, the EOS currently has members from 24 countries, including Sweden, Ger- many, Austria, France and the UK. Its first meeting took place in Berlin in 1910. The congress was previously held in Sweden in 1956, 1965, 1981 and 1993. The meeting is open to members and non-members alike. Those who wish to attend the five-day programme are still able to register on-site, but will have to pay a fee, the organiser said.
