Dear Participants and AI-enthusiasts,

We would like to welcome you to the first virtual meeting of the European Head and Neck Society (EHNS) on Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Head & Neck Oncology. AI is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines and a fascinating methodology making its way into all domains of head and neck oncology. 

During this virtual teaser on Saturday morning, we will address «safety issues» of AI for health care in general, and discuss AI in endoscopy, robotics, radiation therapy, and image analysis. This will be followed by a discussion with the audience on „How AI could be used to develop new treatments“ and a second discussion on „the role of AI in clinical trials and how to implement it". 

We all look forward seeing and discussing with you virtually in October.

Many thanks in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Christian Simon, M.D
