Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends,
The outbreak by Covid 19 virus paralyzed the whole World by March 2020 and this also had a great impact on scientific events. It is well known that almost all scientific meetings are postponed to coming years even the ones scheduled to autumn 2020. This Pandemics initiated online meetings to keep sharing the experience on science, but also the hot topic on Covid-19 infection. The International Vestibular Society keeps the dates of V. Vertigo Academy International Meeting as already scheduled to 7-11 April 2021 in Belgrade as already announced.
International Vestibular Society nominates 15 April to be the Vestibular Disease Awareness Day. This is to create awareness about the vertigo and dizziness problems worldwide. Scientific activities will be planned during the day as well as announcements and messages from the societies as well as distinguished scientists will be encouraged. International Vestibular Society will serve for this mission as a blog.
Vertigo Academy International is a Scientific Organization of International Vestibular Society. Its Academic Program and learning objectives offer substantial opportunities to the fellows interested with the topic. Following 4 successive previous meetings in Turkey, Russia, India and Belarus, the V. Vertigo Academy International Meeting is planned to take place in Belgrade.
International Vestibular Society was founded in 2018. While Vertigo Academy International Meetings were progressing with great success there has been a need to create an organization to cover it. The primary task was to introduce educational perspectives to the field. The awareness and the level of the knowledge was aimed to be elevated among the physicians in the field. The learning objectives are constituted, a certification program is prepared.
VAI was initiated as a standing alone independent organization but then a necessity raised to be covered by a Society. The regulations and its business could be handled efficiently by an international committee. Almost 60 esteemed Vestibular Scientists established the initiation of the International Society. The organization was registered as International Vestibular Society, the temporary executive committee was fully agreed to have official term for four years.
