Dear Colleagues

            On behalf of the Romanian Rhinologic Society, a young but dynamic scientific organization, we are glad to propose  Piatra Neamt , an interesting place where traditions and ancient cultural values join modernism, to host the 2nd  Congress of the Romanian Rhinologic Society.

            We strongly believe that our proved scientific and organisational expertise  together with the attractions of  this town and moldavian monasteries will help us organizing a fruitful ideas exchange and to offer  the participants nice memories from  this part of the world.
