Asian Transplantation Week 2018

Bexco, 55, APEC-ro, Haeundae-gu, 48060 Busan, Korea

Dear colleagues, We are delighted to invite you to the Asian Transplantation Week (ATW) 2018, which will be held from 8 (Thu) to 10 (Sat) November, 2018 at Bexco, Busan, Korea. This meeting is endorsed by The Transplantation Society. ATW was launched by The Korean Society of Transplantation (KST) in the hope that it would contribute to the advancement of clinical techniques, especially among young Asian professionals, and the spread of a culture befitting the spirit of the Declaration of Istanbul in the field of transplantation in the Asian region. ATW 2018 will serve as a milestone for all Asian societies developing a young transplant program, and lead to making a firm basis for their initiatives. Highlight sessions will include those that deal with issues relevant to establishing a national system for organ transplant and strengthening education programs for transplant trainees in Asia. ATW 2018 will also offer an exceptional postgraduate program starting on Thursday afternoon with a Vitallink symposium in the morning. We are very excited to offer Travel Grants to selected international abstract presenters, and hope that you will consider submitting an abstract. Abstracts will be presented at plenary, concurrent and poster sessions. As you are aware, all accepted abstracts will be considered for publication in the Transplantation Proceedings. We are confident that you will broaden your horizons, have the opportunity to network with your contemporaries from Asian transplant societies, and experience Korean culture at ATW 2018, and eagerly look forward to your participation. Thank you for your interest and support. Sincerely, Insung Moon (Congress President) & Soon-II Kim (Chair Organizing Committee).
