This section has only been recently established at the occasion of ICOMS 2015 in Melbourne, Australia deriving from the former SORG Asia/Pacific Group. It is our ambition to assemble the regional section members from Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia in the section. The section will cover the entire range of scientific topics of today's CMF surgery: Trauma, TMJ, orthognathic and preprosthetic surgery, but also fields like 3D-computer planning, orthodontics or distraction osteogenesis. A close cooperation with further colleagues in the region is highly appreciated. Mutual exchange of scientific knowledge to further institutions in the area and beyond is a further important goal.
