Invitation


Dear colleagues and friends,


On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 4th Congress of the Asia-Pacific Pediatric Cardiac Society (APPCS 2012), we have the pleasure to invite you to join the 4th APPCS on April 4-7, 2012, at the Grand Hotel, Taipei, Taiwan.


The vision, “Cure and care of cardiac children”, has been set for this 4th APPCS, with a widened scope covering not only the diagnostic, interventional and surgical fields but also the care of the cardiac children, including long-term follow-ups and social integration programs. After a year of preparation, the Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the scientific program which will be featured as plenary session, featured symposium, breakout sessions and oral presentation sessions for abstracts. Plenary sessions, with wide scope and multidisciplinary presenters, are designed to meet the needs of all who care for the cardiac children and adults with congenital heart disease. Featured symposiums will provide a flow for a systemic approach for the major defects.


In addition to the didactic sessions, there will be whole-day live-demo Interventional symposium on structural heart disease. This session will be the best chance for you to sharpen your interventions for cardiac children.


What’s more, we are arranging the the most exciting social events for all our delegates and guests to insure you a most unforgettable congress! As everyone knows, Taipei is the capital of Taiwan. From the world’s tallest building to the biggest collection of Chinese arts, Taipei is a city mixing the modern and the tradition, with a generous dash of energy and friendly smiles. Taipei has dozens of world-class restaurants where the best regional Chinese cuisine could be sampled; and for the gourmand, there are plenty of night markets serving scrumptious evening snacks in an environment of chaotic excitement and fun. The Organizing Committee has set for itself the objective of providing the appropriate resources so that all participants will be enriched scientifically and culturally.


We are very sure that you will have a most enjoyable time in Taipei, combining academics with pleasure. Looking forward to welcoming you in Taipei.
