Dear Colleagues,

As the Scientific Chair of ASCS 2020, it is my great pleasure to announce that 10th Biennial Congress of ASEAN Society of Colorectal Surgeons, Bangkok, Thailand (ASCS 2020) will be held virtually on 30 September – 3 October 2020 (4 days, 3-hour session/day). The details of scientific program can be found in the website.

Fundamentally, this virtual conference will share an insight into the best practices and cutting edge of colorectal surgery and update management in colorectal and anal diseases. Great symposia will be delivered by distinguished speakers from ASEAN countries as well as from Japan and Korea.

If you are planning on attending the ASCS 2020 Virtual Conference, you shall register each daily session separately. The registration is “free-of-charge” providing that you complete on-line information and question.

Video-on-demand lectures of other original scientific topics which are not included in this virtual conference will be posted and accessed for a week before and after the virtual conference.

Those who would like to share your latest researches could submit you abstract for either e-poster presentation or oral presentation. An award will be provided for the best presenters.

Since this conference covers very interesting subjects on colorectal and anal diseases from very fundamental issue to practical application of colorectal surgery, anyone interested in current and future practice of colorectal surgery should not miss.

I am looking forward to welcome you all to the ASCS 2020 Virtual Conference.
