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 hold 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.
