Event Overview
Welcome message:

On behalf of the International Association of Pancreatology (IAP) and Korean Pancreatobiliary Association (KPBA), we would like to welcome all of you to the Joint meeting of IAP and KPBA 2013.

IAP & KPBA 2013 will deal with a variety of topics from basic research to clinical practice for pancreatic diseases and will bring together physicians and researchers interested in the pancreas from all over the world. The scientific programs including live demonstrations of endoscopic and surgical procedures will demonstrate the cutting-edge information and practice as well as the latest advances on clinical and basic research for the pancreatic diseases.

We will invite a number of prominent key figures worldwide to this four-day meeting.
