23rd Asia Pacific League of Associations for Rheumatology Congress
We are excited to welcome you to the 23rd Asia Pacific League of Associations for Rheumatology Congress, supported by the Japan College of Rheumatology.
The congress will be held from 28-31 August 2021 in Kyoto, Japan, while we continue to monitor the relevant Novel Coronavirus Diseases (COVID-19) restrictions. APLAR 2021 will provide both a forum for exchange on cutting-edge scientific and clinical information. The congress will draw on international, regional and Japanese speakers to provide world-class research, scientific and medical content for our attendees.
The congress will facilitate interactions among physicians, researchers, scientists, clinicians and other health professionals from the Asia Pacific region, and around the world. With APLAR member national societies now representing 25,000+ Rheumatologists in the APAC region, we are working to ensure that APLAR 2021 is a high-impact congress, providing representative exposure to APLAR’s many member societies, and a lasting legacy for rheumatology both in Japan and the Asia-Pacific region.
The APLAR 2021 Congress theme will be reflected through the scientific program in a series of high-profile plenary presentations, concurrent sessions, pre-congress workshops and poster presentations. Our industry partners continue to play a role in thought leadership through curation of content in the industry program, and also support for the continuing medical education of Rheumatologists in our region.
We encourage you to review our prospectus and start the conversation on how we can partner to raise the impact of APLAR 2021 Kyoto. We look forward to welcoming you to Kyoto in August 2021.
