As the Board of Directors of the OSSEOINTEGRATION ACADEMY ASSOCIATION (OSSEDER), which is the leading association in its field, we have decided to re-organize our congresses, which we have been taking a break for a long time. Due to the pandemic, we held our meetings as webinars via Zoom. Our first face-to-face congress (9th International Osseointegration Congress) to be held on 18-21 May 2023 in Antalya Pine Beach Hotel with the participation of Anton Sculean, Burak Yılmaz, Frank Schwarz, Isabella Rocchietta, Iva Milinkovic, Ralf J. Kohal, Marina Stefanini, Mutlu Özcan, Matteo Chiapasco, Óscar González Martin and many more esteemed scientists. We are all excited and looking forward to meeting our friends and colleagues at our congress. In addition to the conferences given by international speakers, there will also be oral and poster presentation sessions presented by our young academicians and academician candidates. Oral presentations will be published in the congress book as full text and poster presentations as abstract text. We reserved the last day of our congress into different courses. The courses will be held with a limited number of participants. Necessary announcements in this regard will be made on our website (www.ossedercongress.org), social media accounts, whatsapp and telegram. We are sure that this scientific activity will fill an important scientific gap like our previous meetings, add new information, reinforce our current knowledge and keep it in mind. We would like to see you and your colleagues at our congress. For this reason, we hope to meet you at the congress and offer our kindness and respect.

Antalya is a city where the sea, sun, history and nature commune in harmony.
Ancient cities, the sea, sun, beach, forest ... all are parts of this integrity. Mustafa Kemal Atatürk describes Antalya with the phrase "Undoubtedly, Antalya is the most beautiful place in the world".
Antalya is one of the most visited cities in the world and of course there are dozens of reasons for this. Those who love the sea, sand and sun and those who want to get lost in nature can find dozens of options in Antalya with the 640-kilometer coastline stretching from west to east on the Mediterranean coast, the Toros Mountains surrounding the city parallel to the coast.
