Call for Abstracts
Asian pacific prostate society is a young and dynamic society. With the continuous development, APPS has made significant contributions to the in-depth clinical and basic study of prostate diseases in the Asia-Pacific region, and the promotion of ideas exchanges among urologists. In recent years, the association has grown and its members are not limited to urologists in the Asia-Pacific region.
APPS 2019 annual meeting will be held in Pudong District, Shanghai, China, from 29th Nov to 1st Dec. This meeting will be held in conjunction with Chinese Anti-Cancer Association Genitourinary Oncology (CACA-GU) 2019 annual meeting and 9th Shanghai Genitourinary Oncology Symposium in parallel, at Kerry Hotel Pudong Shanghai. The conference will include exciting lectures, intense debates and exquisite poster presentations. We will also arrange grand opening ceremony and excellent gala dinner. We are pretty sure that the APPS 2019 annual meeting will also be an academic highlight like this year’s conference.
