Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to welcome you to the APASL STC 2023 which will be held in Busan, Korea from September 21st to the 23rd, 2023. Building on the success of previous meetings of APASL, we shaped the program with the theme “Toward Elimination of Viral Hepatitis,” an excellent opportunity for you to learn and discuss the latest research results with world renowned medical professionals.

The three-day scientific program and presentations by leading world experts, as well as new research by young scientists will provide a perfect blend of both basic and clinical research. Regardless of your personal expertise, this meeting will allow you to share opinions and to contact experts from multiple aspects of Viral Hepatitis. To meet this aim, several tracks have been identified with the meeting program designed to facilitate contacts with several opinion leaders who will guarantee the highest possible scientific level of expertise—ensuring new developments for the elimination of Viral Hepatitis.

The conference venue of Busan, the second largest city of Korea, is now promoting itself as a potential host city of the World EXPO. It offers numerous dynamic features to welcome you after the challenging COVID pandemic which is why we encourage you to join and meet your colleagues from around the world for this memorable face-to-face experience.

Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you in Busan.
