It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 7th Biennial Congress from 16 to 18 July in Singapore, proudly organised by the ASEAN Society of Colorectal Surgeons (ASCS) together with the Society of Colorectal Surgeons (Singapore).
ASCS is now one of the region’s important platforms dedicated to the study of colorectal surgery. We are pleased to work hand in hand with the local organising committee, the Society of Colorectal Surgeons (Singapore) to make the 2014 Congress a memorable event.
This Congress will provide you with an opportunity to share and exchange ideas, and learn new developments in the field of colorectal surgery. We encourage you to share your latest research findings and present your abstracts and papers with fellow medical practitioners and academia at ASCS 2014. We hope to build upon the success of previous ASCS meetings to bring this to a new height.
Besides the excellent scientific programme and top expert speakers, ASCS 2014 promises a series of exciting social programme that will provide delegates an opportunity to explore and network during their stay in Singapore.
As President-elect of ASCS, I warmly welcome you to Singapore in 2014 and look forward to welcoming you and your family to what will be a memorable Congress.
Ho Kok Sun, M.D.
President-elect, 7th ASEAN Society of Colorectal Surgeons
