Aims

This course is an attempt to teach Smell and Taste in a most practical and interesting way, meaning that the meeting is not only defined by lectures, but through practical courses and demonstrations. In addition, the meeting is meant to provide a platform for the informal discussion of questions related to clinical issues around smell and taste - to this end we will entertain plenary sessions where, for example, cases will be presented. Last, no least, the meeting is meant to build or to strengthen networks among the small community of clinicians interested in smell and taste.

Location

It will be organised through the Smell & Taste Clinic of the Department of Otorhinolaryngology of the University of Dresden Medical School, Fetscherstrasse 74, 01307 Dresden, Germany, phone +49-351-458-4189. The meeting will be held in the Medizinisch-Technisches Zentrum (MTZ), Fiedlerstraße 42, D-01307 Dresden, Germany, phone +49-351-450-0.
