Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues & Friends,

I am delighted to welcome all of you – the practitioners and clinicians, academics and scientists, nurses, allied health professionals, and of course your dear families – to Shanghai, a city as rich in history, exotica, glamour and mystique as it is in the arts, architecture, shopping and cuisine.

Wide-ranging in its approach and comprehensive in scope, APLAR 2016 will present a vital scientific programme of high-level plenaries by a distinguished group of international, regional, and national experts, interactive symposia on contemporary trends, poster and platform opportunities, and workshops and debates on hot topics.

We will also take some time off from forging the future of rheumatology to celebrate the camaraderie of the congress with a lavish social programme, and I look forward to meeting each and every one of you here in the exciting global hub of Shanghai.


Yours sincerely,



Prof. Kevin Pile

President, APLAR
