The 12th Asia-Pacific Congress of Endoscopic and Laparoscopic Surgery (ELSA 2015)

Dear colleagues and friends,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 12th Asia-Pacific Congress of Endoscopic and Laparoscopic Surgery (ELSA 2015).

ELSA 2015 will be held in Daegu, Korea from September 2 (Wed) – 5 (Sat), 2015. ELSA 2015 promises to be a great opportunity to present high-level techniques in endoscopic and laparoscopic surgery in the rapidly developing Asia Pacific region, exchange information, and share valuable academic researches and cases. The scientific program will be carefully designed to offer sessions in various categories that cover the most urgent and important topics and issues that we are facing at the present.

A large number of world-renowned scholars and doctors will also be invited to speak about their remarkable achievements and findings and share their expertise.

Recently, Daegu has emerged as a city of high-tech industries, including the fields of renewable energy, advanced medical technology, and IT convergence. Since Daegu is located in the middle of South Korea surrounded by various UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites, participants may get a taste of both traditional Korean culture and modern daily life while they are visiting the host city for the congress. September with its pleasant weather is the best time to enjoy the beautiful natural scenery of Korea.

We are confident that ELSA 2015 will offer much to see, learn, and take away as long-lasting memories, and invite you to participate in this wonderful experience.

We look forward to welcoming you to ELSA 2015 in Daegu, Korea!
