Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to welcome you to the Asian Pacific Association for the Study of the Liver APASL Oncology 2021, which will be held on December 17-18 2021 in Tokyo, Japan as a hybrid-style meeting.

This conference had originally been scheduled for December 2020; however, it was rescheduled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We deeply appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

The scientific program will consist of invited lectures, plenary sessions, symposia, and free papers on significant developments on the theme of “Your Gateway to Oncology in the Asia-Pacific Region”. The program will also provide the latest information and fresh ideas for hepatologists and oncologists in this area.

We have accepted all categories of Hepatology and Oncology abstracts, including case reports. We appreciate your submission of abstracts and anticipate a large number of attendants, which will stimulate active discussions.

APASL Oncology 2021 will combine the physical event at The Prince Park Tower Tokyo, Japan in the Centre of Tokyo, with a Virtual Meeting platform for a unique experience bringing both the in-person and virtual community together. Webcast video presentations will be connected with physical presentations and sessions including virtual interactions, live commentary, online chat and discussion.

A delegation of experts from all over the world is expected to attend this conference. We are sure that this will provide an excellent opportunity for those of us in the Asian Pacific region to share the latest views, values, experience, and practice, and greatly contribute to this field.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon in Tokyo or through the online webinar.

With warmest regards,

Mitsuhiko Moriyama, MD.
