Sub-specialty Meetings

Letter from the Director

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. As the temperatures in Little Rock reach the mid-90s each day (in Fahrenheit!), it becomes somewhat di cult to envision the snowy ski slopes of Zell im Zillertal and the cozy warmth of Hotel Theresa.

On that note, this edition of the Prosper Meniere Society Newsletter features many things to do in Zell if you do not care to ski. We hope you take the time to look these over as the Hotel Theresa - our conference venue - is a wonderful place to bring family.

I would also like to remind everyone to register for the meeting. Early-bird registration is now open, and we have already received several abstracts for presentation. In addition, please book your hotel accommodations early as space lls up quickly. All the information about the 18th International Symposium and Workshops can be found on our website at

I hope to see you there!
