About the Society and the Conference

The Society

The 4th Laryngology Society of Australasia Conference is the official conference of the Laryngology Society of Australasia.

The Laryngology Society of Australasia was formed to promote Laryngology in Australasia for Otolaryngologists, Speech Pathologists and Voice Scientists.

The fundamental purpose is to hold meetings at which those interested in Laryngology can discuss clinical practice and present research papers.

The Laryngology Society of Australasia was founded in 2012 with the aims to:
1. Advance education and research in all aspects of laryngology

2. Promote current best practice training and treatment in laryngeal structure, function and disorder throughout Australasia

3. Establish and maintain communication between professionals in the field of laryngology, liaise with other similar organisations worldwide and furthermore advocate with government and health providers, and

4. Facilitate meetings, workshops, conventions and other educational activities for those interested in laryngology to foster development of basic sciences and related clinical practice.

The Conference

The conference will appeal to surgeons, speech pathologists and researchers working in the field of Laryngology and there will be plenary presentations by the international keynote speakers along with concurrent sessions.

This excellent educational opportunity will cover the scientific, medical, surgical and clinical aspects of laryngology including voice, swallowing and upper airway. Some of our proposed topics include: complex airway management, laryngeal physiology, phonosurgery, medical management of complex laryngeal conditions, in-office procedures, cough, regenerative medicine, vocal cord dysfunction and neurolaryngeal disorders.

The networking function at the conference will be a great opportunity to meet colleagues, share experiences and develop collaborations.

One of the additional aspects of the conference in 2020 is the opportunity for surgeons and speech pathologists, along with researchers in the field of laryngology, to submit an abstract for presentation at the conference.

We invite contributions to the program, calling for research and clinical papers and/or posters.

Abstract submissions will be accepted on the Abstract Info page until Monday 29 June 2020.
