We would like to invite you to Cairo, Egypt to attend The 8th International Conference of the Egyptian Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons. The Conference will offer a current, practical, clinically relevant programme focusing on techniques, procedures, and the recent advances in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. A distinguished group of international experts from around the world have agreed to participate in this meeting.

The programme has been structured to allow the participants to interact with top-level international experts in their field. This year we have also included oral abstract sessions to allow maximum participation of surgeons and researchers from all over the world in this international conference.

This conference will give you the opportunity to explore Egypt, the land
of 7000 years of civilization. Cairo, the capital of Egypt will host this conference. It is Africa's largest city, bound on one side by the greatest desert in the world and bisected by one of the longest rivers. Here Africa meets Europe, the Near East overlaps with the Classic West. During your stay in Cairo you will have an opportunity to enjoy a memorable excursion into its colourful history, culture, heritage and mythology and indeed to meet its people. At walking distance from the conference headquarters is the Egyptian Museum which houses the treasures of Tut Ankh Amon among many other fabulous works of art. Guests will have the opportunity to visit the old Muslim Quarter with its many minareted mosques, the Mohamed Ali Mosque,the Citadelof Salahdin, and Khan il Khlili Bazaar as well as the Christian Quarter where the Holy Family lived during their three years stay in Egypt.
