It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 18th World Congress of Endoscopic Surgery (WCES 2022)
to be held in Busan, Korea from October 5 to 8, 2022.
Since the first WCES congress was held in 1988, WCES has grown into one of the most authoritative congresses while remarkably contributing to the advancement of techniques of minimally invasive surgery. WCES is the best place for all the surgeons and participants to collaborate and to build relationships for the future of MIS.
WCES 2022 will follow in the footsteps of previous congresses and continue to abide by its standard of excellence. Under the theme of "Embracing New Challenges, Opening a New Era,” the WCES 2022 committee will organize our programs to gather all surgeons and researchers who are interested in the field of endoscopic surgery.
I am confident that we will overcome today’s pandemic and meet in-person with the more colleagues at WCES 2022. Be sure to mark the dates in your calendar and please stay safe and healthy until we meet at WCES 2022.
We look forward to seeing you all in Busan, Korea!
Prof. Ho-Seong Han
WCES 2022 Organizing Committee
