Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 42nd Annual Meeting of the Korean Society of Nephrology (KSN 2022) which will be held at the Seoul Dragon City, Seoul, Korea from May 26 (Thu) to 29 (Sun), 2022.

We organized past 2 year's KSN meeting 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 2022. However, we are afraid that travel may continue to be difficult. Therefore, KSN 2022 will be held in a hybrid format combining in-person and virtual programs. With the experience gained in 2020 and 2021, we are confident that KSN 2022 will be even more informative with, of course, top priority continuing to be given to the health and safety of our participants.

KSN 2022 is the 7th 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 200 experts from all over the world delivering the latest findings and engaging in high-quality discussions.

Under the theme "K-Nephrology! Together with Asia!", KSN 2022 will cover a wide range of hot topics 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 2022 will be invaluable in deepening your knowledge and broadening your global network, and cordially invite you to join us at KSN 2022. Come share your valuable expertise with us, and enjoy the programs prepared for you at KSN 2022.

Sincerely yours,

Chul Woo Yang, M.D.
