Message from the President of the ICMFS 2015
Dear Colleagues & Friends,
It’s with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 29th World Congress of the International College for Maxillofacial Surgery (ICMFS), which will be held in sunny Cyprus between the 5th and 9th of October 2015.
Our objectives for this Congress will be to link research with practice, as well as to advance our surgical knowledge and professional care of jaws, face and skull pathologies around the world.
This Congress will offer you keynote lectures, high quality masterclasses, panel discussions, controversies, oral presentations and poster presentations. The meeting will also give everyone a chance to get closer together, make new acquaintances or meet up with old friends in a captivating setting, whilst facing new challenges and discovering new pathways of dealing with patients.
Enjoy this unique chance for all of us to meet, learn and socialize in an environment that is sunny and friendly.
Limassol, the town which will be holding the Congress, is located on the Southern Coast of Cyprus. Our congress venue the Carob Mill, is situated at the historical center of Limassol surrounded from the town’s old port and the new Limassol Marina. It is an excellent conference area by the Medieval Castle of Limassol allowing you to experience the city’s old rhythm.
Our small island has an old-fashioned lifestyle with many modern features and it is full of museums, enchanting castles, inviting beaches and nearly all year-round sunshine. Cyprus is an island of legends and stories that date over 10,000 years ago, and has seen many civilizations come and go which includes people like Alexander the Great to Cleopatra when faced with such beauty. Aphrodite made Cyprus her home too, and travelers throughout the ancient times came here to pay her tribute.
Cyprus is also well known for Copper, large deposits of which are found in Cyprus and thus the name of Cyprus derives from the ancient Greek word for copper.
To conclude, it is of great importance that we remain united and strengthen our friendships, contacts and knowledge, whilst keeping up to date with the latest developments within our field.
I hope you will enjoy and learn from our Congress Programme.
Wishing everyone all the best,
President of the 29th World Congress of the ICMFS 2015

What is Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery?
Oral & Maxillofacial (OMF) Surgeons specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the mouth, jaws, face and neck.
OMF surgery is often seen as the bridge between medicine and dentistry, treating conditions that require expertise from both backgrounds such as head and neck cancers, salivary gland diseases, facial disproportion, facial pain, temporomandibular joint disorders, impacted teeth, cysts and tumours of the jaws as well as numerous problems affecting the oral mucosa such as mouth ulcers and infections.
Also, OMF can correct skeletal disorders of developmental or congenital etiology, correction of clefts and other craniofacial anomalies. Finally, it deals with the repair of traumas and tumors in the area of the head and neck.
Many OMF surgeons focus on one of these areas to develop a sub-specialist interest within the scope of the wider specialty.
