The 15th Japan - Korea
NEW Horizon in Cerebrovascular Surgery
September 9(Thu.) ~11(Sat.), 2021
Grand Walkerhill Seoul, Korea
Dear Friends in Japan and Korea Cerebrovascular Surgical Societies.
Welcome to the 15th JKJC in Seoul!
It is my great honor that I host the 15th Japan-Korea Joint Conference on Surgery for Cerebral Stroke in Seoul.
Since the first meeting was held in 1989, we have developed a big progress in the field of cerebro-vascular surgery in each country along with strong friendship and academic communications. There are many unpredictable obstacles, however, that we must overcome to keep our firm friendship. For example, Professor Houkin and Sapporo group overcame the serious earthquake disaster that had attacked the original meeting day in September of 2018 and arranged a reset-meeting very successfully in April of 2019. Eventually, the JKJC bond became much stronger and I realize that we must transfer the spirit of our close relationship to our successors, young generations.
The main theme of 15th JKJC Meeting is “New Horizon in Cerebrovascular Surgery”. We need to establish a new paradigm in this field, beyond aneurysms, vascular malformations, ischemic strokes, etc. to expand our role and territory. We will also commemorate the 30 year history of Japan-Korea relationship of cerebrovascular surgeons, focusing on the contributions of former giants, as well as on the masterplan of the future directions for the young generations in cerebrovascular surgery field.
I strongly request that all participants will bring their family to this meeting to share our academic efforts and passion with family members, which will make our cerebrovascular job much happier. I and Korean executive members will do our best to provide passionate academic discussion and fun for all participants.
