On behalf of the organising committee, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Special Asian and Oceanic Society for Paediatric Radiology (AOSPR) Congress, 2016 which will be held from 10th to 12th of October 2016 in Kuching, Sarawak. We are very proud and honoured to announce that College of Radiology, Academy of Medicine of Malaysia has again been given the opportunity to host the Congress in Malaysia.
Since its inaugural meeting in Tokyo in 2000, AOSPR Congress has been organised and hosted by a member country almost every year. In 2009, we were given the opportunity to organise a very successful AOSPR Congress in Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia. I am sure some of you still remember the event.
In 2016, the Special AOSPR Congress will be in Kuching the capital of Sarawak “The land of the hornbills” in East Malaysia in the Island of Borneo. Kuching is the land of friendliness, the land of multi-ethnic harmony, the land of adventure and wilderness and the land where you can explore possibilities. I am sure your stay here will be exciting and promising as you explore Kuching and the rest of Sarawak.
In whatever we do, we must have a good grasp of basic knowledge, hence the theme for our pre-congress is “Back to Basics” which covers radiation protection to hands-on ultrasound sessions. The theme for our main congress is “Something for Everyone” which will cover a variety of common and challenging imaging topics for everyone to benefit from.
We will try our best to ensure that this conference is interesting and exciting especially with the great contributions from all our friends from AOSPR member countries. To add to the excitement, we have invited distinguished speakers from Canada, USA, Australia, Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong and many more. We hope this Congress will be a platform for us to share our research, experience and knowledge with others and it will be a platform for us to enhance our academic and clinical collaboration with the rest of the world.
Once again, we welcome you and look forward to seeing you all in Kuching, Sarawak in 2016. Mudahan kita berjumpa agik di Kuching, Sarawak kelak! (Till we meet again in Kuching, Sarawak!)
