We have a great pleasure in welcoming all of you to the APSS Annual Meeting 2022 with live operative surgical course.
The pandemic has thrown the world into disarray and has also snatched the opportunity of having a face to face annual meeting in Kolkatta. With the new challenge of Omicron, travel will continue to be a challenge for our members due to differing travel advisories and quarantine requirements of countries in our region. APSS has stood up to this challenge with the plan for a hybrid meeting in Coimbatore from 10-12 June 2022. To make the meeting more absorbing and educative, a live operative surgery course has been embedded into the annual meeting along with the usual symposia, debates and academic lectures. There will also be ample opportunities for our members to present their work in free paper sessions.
We still hope that the COVID challenge will fade away and travel and face to face participation will be possible in June. For those who can be with us in person, we promise the best of hospitality and academics and for those who will join us virtually we assure a program richly filled with interesting sessions.
Looking forward to seeing all of you soon.
