On behalf of the Chinese Society of Extra-Corporeal Circulation (ChSECC), it is my great honor to invite you to participate the 3rd Meeting of the Federation of Asian Perfusion Societies (FAPS 2018), which will be held in conjunction with 2018 National Conference on Chinese Extra-Corporeal Circulation at Hilton Shanghai Hongqiao Hotel from August 24th Friday to 26th Sunday in Shanghai, China.
Over the years, with the strong support and active participation of extracorporeal circulation academic organizations and perfusionists in various countries and regions in Asia, FAPS has been continuously developed and has become one of the influential academic conferences in the field of clinical perfusion and extracorporeal life support(ECLS) in the Asia-Pacific region and even in the world.
This is a meeting for all participants in the fields of extracorporeal circulation and extracorporeal life support. This will be a grand gathering for basic researchers and clinical experts of perfusion from all over the world, especially in the Asian region. The scientific program, which has been designed to encourage discussion as well as ample opportunities to interact with speakers, will cover a wide array of topics relating to the clinical ECLS. It will, by all means, serve as a wonderful opportunity for us to share the latest innovation and knowledge in extracorporeal circulation and extracorporeal life support around the world.
This meeting coincides with the 15th anniversary of the ChSECC and the 15th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Journal of Extracorporeal Circulation, which will mark the grand celebration of the conference.
Shanghai is the largest city in China. Its reputation as "Pearl of the Orient" represents the perfect combination of 5,000 years of Chinese culture and the achievements of modern Chinese economy. Let us come together in beautiful Shanghai through this meeting to exchange ideas, enhance friendship and work together to promote the development of extracorporeal circulation and extracorporeal life support in Asia.
