It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 41st Annual Meeting of the Korean Society of Nephrology (KSN 2021) which will be held at the Swiss Grand Hotel, Seoul, Korea from September 2 (Thu) to 5 (Sun), 2021.
We organized last year’s KSN 2020 virtually due to COVID-19. It was a big challenge, but we nevertheless were able to host the fully virtual meeting successfully thanks to the enthusiastic support and participation of all the members of KSN as well as colleagues from home and abroad.
We believe that the global situation will be better in 2021. However, we are afraid that travel may continue to be difficult. KSN 2021 also will be held as a fully virtual meeting. With the experience gained in 2020, we are confident that KSN 2021 will be even more informative with, of course, top priority continuing to be given to the health and safety of our participants.
KSN 2021 is the 6th international meeting since 2016, when the KSN expanded its national scientific meeting to an international meeting. Every year, more than 2,500 kidney professionals attend the annual meeting with some 150 experts from all over the world delivering the latest findings and engaging in high-quality discussions.
Under the theme “New journey of KSN to the world,” KSN 2021 will cover a wide range of hot topics including Future Medicine, Big Data, and COVID-19 as well as the most recent updates in various fields of nephrology. We will also invite key opinion leaders in the global nephrology community, and organize joint symposia with related societies.
We firmly believe that KSN 2021 will be invaluable in deepening your knowledge and broadening your global network, and cordially invite you to join us at KSN 2021. Come share your valuable expertise with us, and enjoy the programs prepared for you at KSN 2021.
Chul Woo Yang, M.D.
President, Korean Society of Nephrology
