Dear Colleagues,

Following two successful meetings, we now invite you to the 3rd Vertigo Academy International Meeting that will be organized in Mumbai, India on 2-4 March 2017. The prior VAI Meetings have had a very good impact on Vestibular Science and this has thoroughly encouraged us to continue with it in different parts of the world. I am really looking forward to organizing this meeting in Mumbai and experiencing its exotic, extravagant, elegant atmosphere.

With this opportunity, it is also my pleasure to announce that the 44th Meeting of the Neuro-Otological and Equilibriometric Society (NES) will be organized jointly with VAI-3. This collaboration will certainly give the Scientific Program of the meeting a nice perspective.

We have begun working efficiently to gather the leaders of Vestibular Science to have a very attractive and highly scientific level. The two full-day scientific program will be displayed in 3 parallel rooms.

A day before the meeting begins there will be instructional courses provided by remarkable neurologists on the diagnosis and management of vestibular disorders. We strongly advise you not to miss these courses.

Vertigo Academy International is now part of the Politzer Society as one of its Scientific Organizations.  The academic program has been prepared and announced. With VAI 3 the Academy will take action. If you wish to begin with the Academic Program it is time to apply. Detailed information can be accessed through the web pages of Politzer Society and Vertigo Academy International.

Mumbai will be welcoming you with its beauty next March.

I would like to thank the meeting co-chairs, Mohan Kameswaran and Anirban Biswas, and the Scientific Secretary, Onur Çelik, for all of their efforts during the planning of this meeting.  Their valuable insights into the field have enriched the scientific program and will make for a very stimulating meeting.  I am grateful for their support and companionship.

We will be more than happy to be in collaboration about the Scientific Content of the Program.

Until then, see you all in Mumbai.
