Dear friends and colleagues:
It is my great pleasure to invite you to attend the 16th congress of Korean and Japanese Society of Pediatric Urologist to be held on the 12th of January 2019, at the Shiga University of Medical Science, Otsu, Japan.
The KJSPU congresses have created a space for good relationship between Korean and Japanese pediatric urologists since 1998. Especially, young doctors in both counties are able to experience cultural exchanges as well as scientific discussion. Senior doctors are also able to confirm their long friendships in the congress.
In this meeting we have one luncheon seminar, one keynote lecture, and 25 interesting free papers. The speaker of luncheon seminar will be Prof. Kazunari Kaneko, Department of Pediatrics, Kansai Medical University. He is the former president of Japanese Enuresis Society. He will give us state-of-art lecture about nocturnal enuresis. The speaker of keynote lecture will be Prof. Dong-Soo Ryu, Department of Urology, Samsung Changwon Hospital, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine. He has lots of experiences of robotics in pediatric urology.
Shiga is a famous prefecture for the Lake Biwa, which is called the “Mother Lake” . You can interact with the rich nature of water and greenery of the surrounding beautiful mountains. Otsu is the prefectural capital of the Shiga prefecture, and the JR Otsu station is about 10 minutes from the JR Kyoto station. We prepare the Biwako Hotel located at the lakeshore as your accommodation place.
Please enjoy a spectacular view of the Lake Biwa while soaking in the indoor or open air bath of their natural hot springs, Ruri-no-Yu.
I hope that many people in the both countries will join the congress to share their knowledge and develop firm friendships.
