It is a real privilege to be President of IFEA at this prestigious venue in Tokyo, the city of superlatives.
Professor Hideaki Suda, the Congress President is to be complimented for the results of his tireless involvement and huge amount of work. He managed to set up an outstanding program with the help of his committee members and the President of the Japan Endodontic Association, Professor Akifumi Akamine. Together they fine-tuned it to a perfect mix of scientific lectures and social activities.
The World Congress is the meeting place of different nationalities and cultures. You learn from others and teach others, « others » meaning at least 28 countries!
I strongly suggest you to take advantage of this unique forum to discover and appreciate new speakers and new topics. Make sure you find the time to socialize with new acquaintances.

This country is constantly on the cutting edge of technology: do not forget that Japan is the birthplace of the apex locator and on the forefront of dental adhesives.
