It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that I cordially invite you to the 10th East Asian Conference on Phonosurgery(EACP), to be held in Kumamoto, Japan from March 4th to 5th, 2016. The last EACP in Taipei, Taiwan was a great success and we strive to continue the tradition of excellence here in Kumamoto.
EACP brings together scientific professionals from the 3 countries in East Asia, namely Korea, Taiwan and Japan to present on topics not only phonosurgery but also basic research on voice production and related areas. The conference will include special lectures of distinguished speakers from the 3 countries as conducted in the past meetings and oral and poster presentations. I have high expectations that the 10th EACP will provide participants with the latest and state of the art knowledge and new skills in the field. I expect many proposals for oral and poster presentations to be submitted. Abstract submission page will open on August 1st, 2016.
Kumamoto City is located in the center of the island in the southwestern part of the Japanese archipelago called, “Kyushu.” It is a city with beautiful, clean water and is adjacent to the majestic Mount Aso and all of its surrounding natural beauty. In the center of the city is the castle which Kiyomasa Kato had built more than 400 years ago and is one of three of Japan’s lords castles. Spreading out from Kumamoto Castle one can find castle town and Kumamoto’s downtown core.
For those who have never visited Kumamoto, this is a perfect opportunity to experience all that this wonderful country has to offer.
My colleagues and I are sincerely looking forward to welcoming you to the 10th EACP 2016 in Kumamoto, Japan.
With my best wishes,
