Dear friends and colleagues,

Shigeo Horie, MD., PhD

On behalf of the Congress Organizing Committee and the Council of the Asian Pacific Prostate Society (APPS), it is my pleasure to invite you to the 4th Congress of Asian Pacific Prostate Society to be held on March 21-22, 2014 in Okinawa, Japan.

Asian Pacific Prostate Society has been building professional bonds throughout the Asia-Pacific region using the annual Congress as the medium of sharing up-to-date knowledge and expertise since its establishment in 2011, and this up-coming event, as its turning point, will extend the Society both in the topics to discuss and in the variety of participating countries. The Organizing & Scientific Committee of APPS2014 has selected the most intriguing topics on prostatic diseases. We also encourage young leaders in the Asian-Pacific region to deliver lectures on their latest progress in the basic, clinic and translational research.

I truly hope encourage you to take this opportunity to explore many faces of the most beautiful islands of Japan, Okinawa, and experience its unique cultural and natural features that makes you relax.

We look forward to meeting you soon at the Congress.


Shigeo Horie
