It is our great pleasure to invite you to the Symposium of the Asian Pacific League of Associations of Rheumatology (APLAR) which will be held from August 30 – September 1, 2013 at the Bali international Convention & Exhibition Centre, Indonesia. The Indonesian Rheumatology Association is proud to be the host in cooperation with APLAR.
The 2013 APLAR Symposium is special as it is also being held in conjunction with the 50 Year Foundation Anniversary of APLAR as well as the 2nd Indonesia-Japan Rheumatology Forum. We are very excited to celebrate this momentous occasion in the history of APLAR. The Scientific Committee is preparing an excellent scientific program which will provide a multidisciplinary approach to the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of common musculoskeletal disorders and will focus mainly on new technologies and therapies. A one-day review course and workshops will be offered prior to the symposium.
A commercial exhibition will also be organized alongside the symposium and will feature cutting-edge technology and science for the treatment of rheumatology, and musculoskeletal disorders, and related diseases.
You will be delighted to know that the Organizing Committee has also prepared several networking opportunities for everyone to mingle and network fellow colleagues from all over the region. While in Bali, take the chance to enjoy what our enchanting island has to offer from relaxing beaches to our rich cultural tradition of music and dance, arts and crafts, colorful ceremonies and spectacular panorama.
So, mark your calendars and see you in Bali next year!
