Hello, I am Dr. Debashish Danda from India and President of your organization, APLAR.
I would like to invite and welcome you all to the APLAR Congress to be held at Chiang Mai, Thailand from 9th to 11th of December with pre-Congress workshops on 7th and 8th of December.
This is the first fully in-person APLAR Congress after the COVID pandemic which has divided the world into pre- and post- COVID era. The local organizing committee has drawn up an excellent scientific program and a grand welcome awaits all of you at Chiang Mai.
Chiang Mai is also a tourist attraction and we should take an extra day to see around. Remember, APLAR represents the rheumatologists of almost half the world population.
We are also happy to share with you that participation from American College of Rheumatology and European Union League Against Rheumatism as well as other nations beyond APLAR are also participating in the Congress.
With more than 250 confirmed faculty and with more than 1,000 abstracts, this will be certainly a memorable event for all of you in your lifetime.
See you at Chiang Mai. Thank you.
