To the kind attention of the Presidents/Delegates of the Societies affiliated with the MOIP Network

SIDO President Alessandra Lucchese

Dear Colleagues,

as I am sure you already know, the Italian Society of Orthodontics (SIDO), the French Society of Dento-Facial Orthopedics (SFODF), the European Federation of Orthodontics (FEO) and the Mediterranean Orthodontic Integration Project (MOIP Network) have once again joined forces to organize the 3rd Mediterranean Congress. The event took place in Montecarlo, on April 27th - 30th 2012, and the sessions co-organized by FEO, SIDO and the MOIP Network were greatly appreciated and a huge success. Many participants did comment favourably on the presence of so many young speakers.

SIDO is already planning the next Congress, that will be held in Firenze and we hope you will participate and convene in this beautiful city next October.

We would now appreciate receiving from you an update on the names of your Society' Presidents and Delegates, as not all Societies have communicated the changes that might have occurred. It would help in sending more details directly. On this occasion, we would also appreciate receiving from you some further information, already requested in the past, sadly only received from some participants. To plan future events, the updated list of suggested possible speakers from your Countries, or from the Mediterranean area, had been asked for, to facilitate exchanges of Speakers. An indication of the areas of research and expertise of the nominated speakers was to be included.

Nearly all Countries have provided SIDO with these nominations in the past and the Scientific Committee, in planning the upcoming Congresses, has certainly followed the Societies' indications. It would however be appreciated if the available lists could be updated and implemented with new nominations.

A good cooperation is certainly the basis for the success of any project.

As previously reported, a MOIP Network Award had been suggested, to honour a graduate student or a newly recognized young orthodontist who has provided major contributions to the specialty of Orthodontics. An ad hoc Committee had drafted the criteria for the Award, which were approved at a MOIP Network Delegates meeting in 2010. The first MOIP Network Award will be presented in Firenze in 2012. Moreover, the SIDO President Dr. Maurizio Manuelli and his Council have suggested a special Award for the best poster presentation from a Mediterranean Country presented in Firenze. The criteria for the selection of both Awards will soon be available in the SIDO website. It will be a memorable Congress: do mark the dates!

We are looking forward to welcoming all the SIDO Members, the MOIP Network Members and indeed all the International Colleagues in beautiful Firenze next October.

We thank you for your participation, your continuous support and cooperation in this project and look forward to welcoming you in Firenze.

 With best regards,

Francesca A. Miotti
