The 20th meeting of the IAP

Professor and Chairman

Division of Gastroenterology

Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine

The President of the IAP and the JPS

ー Welcome to Sendai Again in 2016 ー

 It is a great honor for me to host the 20th meeting of the International Association of Pancreatology (IAP) in Sendai, Japan. This IAP meeting will be held in conjunction with the 47th annual meeting of the Japan Pancreas Society (JPS) (hosted by Prof. Shuji Isaji) and the 6th meeting of the Asian- Oceanic Pancreatic Association (AOPA) (hosted by Prof. Masanori Sugiyama) during August 4-8, 2016 at the Sendai International Center. The first week of August is an exciting time for us in Sendai because of a big summer festival called "Sendai Tanabata" or "Sendai Star festival". Thousands of huge, beautiful lantern-like paper-works called "Tanabata- kazari" will welcome you, and the shopping streets decorated with them will be crowded with several tens of thousands of people visiting Sendai to enjoy the gorgeous summer events. 

 The first meeting of the IAP was held in Cascais (Estoril), Portugal in September 1984, proposed by Prof. Orlando Bordalo, the chairman of Portugal Pancreatic Club at that time. During the more than three decades since the first IAP meeting, 4 Japanese researchers were nominated for the honor of hosting this prestigious meeting. They are Dr. Ryoichi Tsuchiya (1990 in Nagasaki), Dr. Tadashi Takeuchi (1998 in Tokyo), Dr. Seiki Matsuno (2004 in Sendai), and Dr. Masao Tanaka (2010 in Fukuoka). Very luckily, I am the fifth to receive this honor and Sendai will be the first city chosen two times as the meeting place for IAP meetings. Many may remember the 11th IAP meeting in Sendai in 2004. It was a successful meeting strongly inscribed on our minds as the "Sendai Consensus", the first guidelines for IPMN/MCN management.

 To stimulate scientific interest and achieve solutions for important issues in pancreatology, I am planning 5 international consensus sessions for the 2016 meeting : IC1 - Consensus for treatment of AIP (moderated by Prof. Kazuichi Okazaki and Prof. Suresh Chari), IC2 - International consensus on PNET management (moderated by Prof. Tetsuhide Ito and Prof. Robert T. Jensen), IC3 - International consensus on the management of IPMN (moderated by Prof. Masao Tanaka, Prof. Terumi Kamisawa, Prof. Carlos Fernandez-del Castillo), IC4 - International consensus on borderline resectable pancreatic cancer (moderated by Prof. Shuji Isaji and Prof. Christopher Wolfgang) and IC5 - What is early chronic pancreatitis and why is diagnosis important ? (moderated by Prof. Tooru Shimosegawa and Prof. David Whitcomb). We are also preparing 9 IAP-JPS combined sessions (6 symposia, 1 satellite symposium, 1 meet the professor session, 1 young investigator award session) and 7 JPS sessions, 1 AOPA symposium and poster sessions, all of which will be presented and discussed in English. I can promise everyone will be pleased with the up-coming program details.

 Sendai is a typical Japanese capital city of a local region. With a population of 1 million, it is not as busy as Tokyo and Osaka, but still has a dynamic culture while retaining much natural scenery. It is about a 90 min ride from Tokyo to Sendai by the "Tohoku Shinkansen", a bullet train that guarantees you a comfortable and smooth trip. Although Sendai and our region suffered from a terrible disaster, the Great East Japan earthquake and Tsunami 4 years ago, our city has recovered almost fully and has undergone more development than before the disaster. As a city facing the Pacific Ocean, you can enjoy various types of seafood during your stay in our city such as sushi, sashimi, oysters, hoya (a specialty in our region) and other delicacies. Grilled beef tongue is another famous specialty of our city, that you should experience at least once. In addition, our region is famous for more than 30 breweries of high quality Japanese sake. I hope all attendees will enjoy the meeting and have wonderful memories of Sendai and the "Tanabata Summer Festival".
