Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our great honor and pleasure to invite you to the 5th Asia Pacific Acute Kidney Injury & Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy Congress (APAC 2023) to be held from September 21 (Thu) to 24 (Sun), 2023 at EXCO, Daegu, Korea.

APAC 2023 will be the first large-scale international congress to be held in eight years since the Korean Society of Nephrology (KSN) hosted the 7th Asia Pacific Chapter Meeting of International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis (APCM-ISPD) in 2015 at the same venue in the same city.

The world is still going through an unprecedented period with the prolonged COVID-19 pandemic, which has altered not only our lives but also the medical scene. In particular, the treatment of patients in the field of Acute Kidney Injury and Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy has become a global issue and witnessed advancements worldwide.

In line with the current developments, we are designing the best possible program with high quality scientific sessions that will provide a great opportunity for all participants to keep up-to-date with the latest research findings, and plan to invite a large number of world-renowned speakers and delegates to share their insights and achievements.

Based on the valuable exchanges that we have had through past annual international meetings, KSN is delighted to hold the upcoming meaningful congress in-person in collaboration with Professor Ravindra Mehta, CRRT Inc. It is the wish of KSN to have the privilege to share its experience and know-how with colleagues from all over the world through APAC 2023. Please join us at APAC 2023 to share your valuable expertise with us and enjoy the programs that we will prepare for you.

We look forward to meeting you all at APAC 2023 in Daegu, Korea!

Sincerely yours,

Chun Soo Lim, M.D.

President, Korean Society of Nephrology
