Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues,

On  behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is great honor for me to invite you to the 24th Conference of the Asian Pacific Associaton for the Study of the Liver (APASL). The conference will take place in March 12 - 15, 2015, in Istanbul, Turkey that is the crossroad of many cultures. This is the first time for APASL annual conference will be held in far west of Asia. So it makes this conference more attractive not only for Asian – Pasific countries but also Middle East, European, African and even American countries.


Scientific level of APASL conferences has been improving progressively year by year increased number of submitted presentations and postgraduates courses. The official journal of APASL, Hepatology International is growing rapidly with great efforts by editors, Prof. Masao Omata and Prof. Shiv Sarin, although it was launched only 5 years ago. I believe that this conference will represent the challenge the development of the basic studies as well as clinical researches of Hepatology.


Istanbul is very convenient for the transportation having direct flights from many destinations by different airlines as well Turkish Airline from all over the world. Also there are a lots of hotels closed to convention center.


During its long history, Istanbul has served as the Capital of the Roman Empire (330–395), the East Roman (Byzantine) Empire (395–1204 and 1261–1453), the Latin Empire (1204–1261), and the Ottoman Empire (1453–1922). Located in the center of the old world, this exotic city is famous for its historical monuments and scenic views. It is the only city in the world which spreads over two continents: Asia and Europe which are separated by a narrow strait - the Bosphorus.


Istanbul is adorned with the masterpieces of Turkish art, the great mosques of the Sultans that crown the hills. The city presents an exquisite, majestic and serene silhouette from all directions. The Golden Horn, which is a very secure natural harbor, has played a significant role in the development of the city. The historic city of Istanbul is situated on a peninsula flanked on three sides by the Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn.


Even if you spend only a short time in Istanbul, you can see much of this great heritage. Although renowned for its mystery and history, Istanbul is also a rapidly modernising country with a prime location; one foot in Europe and one in the East. Thus Istanbul retains its fascinating differences, and its contradictions: mosques coexist with churches, and remnants of the Roman Empire still stand alongside ancient Hittite and Neolithic sites.


We are looking forward to meeting you in this beautiful city in 2015,


Prof A. Kadir DOKMECI, MD
