First Annual Conference a Success
ANPOR’s first annual conference, held in Seoul, South Korea, November 21- 23, 2013, was a great success.

Approximately 300 participants representing at least 15 countries attended.

More than 150 oral and poster presentations were made.

In addition, the annual business meeting for ANPOR members, a council meeting, and a joint meeting of the journal board and committee took place during the conference.

One highlight was the cultural presentation of Korean traditional music at the banquet.

We are pleased to announce that this year’s conference will take place in Japan.
