Dear Participants,

We would like to welcome you to the second virtual meeting of the European Head and Neck Society (EHNS) on Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Head & Neck Oncology. After a first teaser event last October with great feed-back, we have now organized a more in-depth congress this time also including workshops and debates.

The meeting will focus on AI and its impact on health care in general, cancer prevention, robotic surgery, radiotherapy, pathology, radiology, and the development of systemic treatment for head and neck cancers.

On the first day, we will hear keynote lectures addressing AI in cancer prevention, endoscopy, and robotics. This will be followed by a "submitted papers" session. In the afternoon we will address „safe“ AI and afterwards hear lectures on AI in radiation therapy and pathology. 

On the second day we will hear lectures on AI in image analysis, drug development, and clinical trials. Afterwards there will be debates and workshops on AI for image and big data analysis.  

We all look forward seeing you virtually in February 2023. 

Many thanks in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Christian Simon, M.D
