It is our pleasure to invite you to the 10th World Cleft Lip and Palate Congress 2016 of the International Cleft Lip and Palate Foundation. Having hosted the 1st International live surgical workshop of the ICPF in 2005, Chennai is an ideal destination for organizing such a global event.

The ICPF Congresses are outstanding, providing education regarding the delivery of excellence in team care. The Cleft 2016 ICPF will provide a unique opportunity in advancing the science and art of cleft lip and palate and the care of associated craniofacial anomalies.

Cleft team professionals from over 70 countries will be participating and presenting state-of-art scientific programs. The conference offers a good balance of stimulating deliberations on exciting new researches, vibrant panel discussions and path breaking innovations.

Also, the venue city, Chennai, represents the great cultural legacy of India. From music to dance to architecture to art, the city offers something for every culture buff. On behalf of the ICPF, we once again welcome you to the Congress and we look forward to seeing you at this magnificent event.
