Dear colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to welcome all of you to participate in the Asia Pacific Prostate Society 2021, 4th Asia Urological Oncology Forum (AUOF) and the 13th annual meeting of Taiwan Urological Oncology Association (TUOA) at Kaohsiung Marriott Hotel, Taiwan from Oct. 7 to 9, 2021.

The Asia Pacific Prostate Society (APPS) provides venues for urologists to exchange their ideas regarding basic and clinical research studies on prostate health and disease factors. In addition, APPS leads the way for multi-national and multi-centered clinical research studies in the Asia-Pacific region.

The AUOF has provided the platform for international exchange of medical knowledge and mutual friendship among Asian countries.

TUOA has been established for 13 years. There are more than 400 members who are urologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, epidemiologists…etc. It has been dedicated to promote urological oncology research, education and clinical practice.

I hope all overseas guests will be impressed by Taiwan’s convenient transportation networks, conference venues, world-renowned scenic beauty, and the warm hospitality of its people- all of which will contribute to a fruitful and memorable event.

On behalf of APPS 2021, AUOF and TUOA, I would like to invite your participation and wish you enjoying this event.

President of TUOA

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.
