The 42nd Neurootological and Equilibriometric Society Congress (NES) was organized in São Paulo, Brazil, March, 26-28, 2015. The Congress was taking place at Sírio-Libanês Institute, in partnership with Sírio-Libanês Hospital, one of the best in Brazil. The Hospital and the Institute are a modern building, and highly available for organizing an International meeting. The halls with the modern technical devices, the lobby with the famous Brazilian coffee and traditional cookies and cheese-bread was unforgettable.

The 42ndNeurootological and Equilibriometric Society Congress (NES) was organized in São Paulo, Brazil, March, 26-28, 2015. The Congress was taking place at Sírio-Libanês Institute, in partnership with Sírio-Libanês Hospital, one of the best in Brazil.
The Hospital and the Institute are a modern building, and highly available for organizing an International meeting. The halls with the modern technical devices, the lobby with the famous Brazilian coffee and traditional cookies and cheese-bread was unforgettable.
The congress was well-organized, with two different sections. The 1stEar Brazil Congress, the national meeting of Brazilian Otologists was connected to the NES meeting. Mostly the presentations were on Portuguese language, but with simultaneous translations to English.
The 1stEar Brazil, this prestigious meeting covered the broad field of Otology and made certainly the Congress more attractive for Otologists in all areas. The Congress had a high scientific merit in both sections.
Few NES members had the possibility to come to the NES congress. Rosmaninho Seabra and Rosa Castillo from Portugal, Anirban Biswas from India, Junichi Matsushima from Japan, and I, Agnes Szirmai from Hungary, were there, besides the Brazilian NES members.
The Congress had the traditional format of NES Congresses focusing on scientific presentation of papers by the att endants from all over the world. There were Pannels and Round Tables in the areas of Neurotology and Tinnitus research.The invited speakers were mostly from Brazil. The detailed program can be seen on the home-page of the congress: http://www.earbrasilnes2015. com.br/
The main topics were:
• The international protocol of the vestibular disorders and the quantification of tests;
• Ménière’s disease;
• Bedside tests in the neurootology;
• Metabolic vestibulopathy;
• Differential diagnosis of Ménière’s disease and vestibular migraine;
• Postural and perceptual dizziness;
• Vascular vertigo;
• Therapy of vertigo;
• Otoneurological surgery.
The Member’s Assembly of the NES was short and familiar, because few NES members were there. The Members’ Assembly confirms that headquarter of the NES was transferred to Budapest, and the next congress of the NES will be held in Budapest, 26-28, May, 2016.
The 42ndNES congress in Sao Paulo had a very high scientific merit and a very good cue. I have to give special thanks to the organizer firm, Stela Maris Eventos, the President of the Congress, Professor Carlos Oliveira, the President of the scientific committee, Fernando Ganança, and Fayez Bahmad Jr, the President of the organizing Committee. All of them were very kind and providing, and they did their best.
Brazilian people were very kind and we could see their professionalism in their work during the congress. Although I spent only four days in Brazil, I feel that this congress was successful and unforgettable.
