Dear Colleagues and Friends,
Welcome to the 7th Biennial Meeting of the Asian Society of Gynecologic Oncology (ASGO 2021) in Bangkok!
As the president of ASGO, I cordially invite you to the 7th Biennial Meeting of ASGO, which will be held on November 25th to 27th 2021 in Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok. ASGO was established by leaders of Japanese and Korean gynecologists in consideration of the need for an Asian regional society dedicated to gynecologic cancer, and held its first meeting in Seoul in 2008. At present, gynecological oncology societies from 11 countries and regions are participating, and it has become a truly unified organization. While six biennial meetings and six international workshops have been held so far, ASGO 2021 is the first biennial meeting to be held outside of Japan and Korea, which makes it very significant.
Furthermore, ASGO 2021 may be the first ever congress in the history of ASGO, which is difficult to steer and take measures to combat COVID-19. Although it is still unclear when the COVID-19 outbreaks would subside worldwide and traffic between countries is limited, I believe that academic exchange and sharing should not be stopped. Now is the time to take pride in the unity of Asian countries and to show the world the development of gynecological oncology in Asia.
ASGO 2021 will warmly welcome you with numerous scientific programs as well as traditional Thai culture. We sincerely look forward to meeting you at the 7th Biennial Meeting of the Asian Society of Gynecologic Oncology in 2021.
The President of Asian Society
of Gynecologic Oncology
