Annual meeting 2019 in Bern

Dear CORLAS members
Dear friends and colleagues
The Swiss group invites you to Bern, the capital city of Switzerland, where the CORLAS meeting 2019 will take place between August 25 and August 28. The meeting is an ideal occasion to meet colleagues and friends from all over the world, to exchange new ideas and to present your latest findings to an interested and knowledgeable audience. Besides the scientific part of the meeting, networking will be facilitated with memorable social events.
For a capital, Bern is a relatively small city, but it is situated beautifully at the Aare river and in full sight of the Alps, which are less than an hour’s drive away. Visit www.bern.com/en/ for a first glimpse of what the city has to offer!
The venue has been chosen carefully for this event. At the Kursaal Bern www.kursaal-bern.ch, an event of high quality is guaranteed, while maintaining a spectacular view over the city and the nearby Alps. A Hotel is integrated into the conference center. The city center is within walking distance, as are a number of additional hotels in offering different price ranges.
The website is up and running, visit www.corlas2019.org or mail us at info@corlas2019.org for further information.
As the local organizers, we look forward to welcoming you to the 2019 CORLAS meeting!

Annual Report 2016

Dear Members and Friends of the Collegium

The 90th anniversary of our society was celebrated in Bordeaux, France on August 28-31, 2016. This was the third time for CORLAS Annual Meeting to be organized in Bordeaux. The meeting was wonderfully planned and hosted by our President René Dauman with the help of his wife Catherine and Vice President Olivier Sterkers, and with the support of the French CORLAS group. The record performance in terms of participants was achieved as more than 300 people attended the meeting. Bordeaux offered us a great week of high-class scientific programme and truly attractive social activities, which will be described in this report together with a summary on other CORLAS activities during 2016. Attached you will find the Treasurer’s report and a collection of photos from the Annual Meeting, Social Programme and Post Congress Tour.

Meeting 2016 Bordeaux

Hosting in Bordeaux the annual conference of this prestigious society, CORLAS (Collegium ORL Amicitiae Sacrum), is a huge privilege for the French group, the ENT School of Bordeaux launched by Professor Georges Portmann and so brilliantly pursued by Professor Michel Portmann.

Georges Portmann was among the founders of the Collegium and organized twice the conference in his city, in 1931 and 1956. Michel Portmann exerted the function of CORLAS Treasurer for a quarter of century (1966-1990) and then passed on this responsibility to Jean-Marie Aran for eight years (1990-1999). Paul van den Broek, then General Secretary (1987-2000), was kind enough to ask me to succeed to Jean-Marie as Treasurer, thus allowing me to join the Board and start working with Pekka Karma.
The CORLAS meeting organized in Lyon by Alain Morgon in 1999, with it’s so particular French touch throughout the conference and the post-conference tour in the Beaujolais, is still in the memory of the many attendees present.
The years during which I had the immense honor to act as General Secretary (2008-2015) have considerably influenced the course of my career and I am greatly indebted to the CORLAS French, honorary and non-honorary, members who supported me during this period so fortunate for me. Without their help, in particular that of Olivier Sterkers, I would not have been able to imagine organizing this conference in Bordeaux.
For decades Bordeaux has attracted numerous tourists knowledgeable in wine. With the remarkable work undertaken by Alain Juppé, Mayor of the city since 1995, the city of Bordeaux nowadays also seduces worldwide visitors for the beauty of many stone-buildings, the delicate homogeneity of its avenues, the renovated banks of its Garonne River. Water and soil have sculpted the organization of the vineyards, Saint-Emilion and Pomerol on the right bank of the Dordogne, Medoc on the left bank of the Gironde estuary, and the trio Graves, Pessac-Léognan and Sauternes on the left bank of the Garonne, south to the city.
The President and the Vice-President of the Bordeaux conference along with the city of Bordeaux will do their best to provide our friends from all around the world with a warm and hearty welcome in August 2016.
