It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 17th ASEAN Federation of Endocrine Societies Congress on November 13 – 16, 2013 at Ritz Carlton Hotel, Mega Kuningan, Jakarta - Indonesia. Dating back to the year of 2001 when the AFES Congress was held in Bali – Indonesia. We still have the same enthusiasm to organize this AFES Congress meeting to be the most exciting congress in the field of endocrinology in ASEAN region.
The theme of the congress would be “Toward Brighter Future of Endocrinology – Metabolic Care in ASEAN Region: From Bench to Clinical Practice”. We choose this theme to emphasize our hope of a better scientific knowledge and experience in the field of endocrinology by increasing collaboration from endocrinology experts all around ASEAN, especially by sharing their unique scientific works. In addition, we would also invite many endocrinology experts from all around the world to add the scientific level of this congress.
During the congress we do hope that you can all participate in this meeting and share your scientific works and also working together to create an endocrinology network between experts all around ASEAN.
We look forward to see you in Jakarta soon. Enjoy Jakarta!
