It is my great pleasure to welcome you all to APSCVIR 2018 in Auckland, New Zealand from the 8th to the 11th March 2018, kindly hosted by the Interventional Radiology Society of Australasia (IRSA).
Set in beautiful Auckland in late summer, APSCVIR 2018 will usher in a new and exciting era for Interventional Radiology in the Asia-Pacific region. Not only is this the 13th scientific meeting of APSCVIR, it is the first annual meeting and will be known as the 13th Annual Scientific Meeting of APSCVIR. Just like CIRSE in Europe and SIR in North America, APSCVIR will become an annual event in the calendars of interventional radiologists and industry partners in the Asia-Pacific.
The meeting will be held at the Sky City Convention Centre close to the Auckland waterfront and a high quality academic programme is planned. The theme for the meeting is “Advances, Problems, Solutions” and the scientific programme will provide an excellent update on the latest developments in Interventional Radiology. An exciting international and local faculty including many thought leaders from the Asia-Pacific region has been confirmed. Plenary and proffered paper sessions cover all the important IR topics in 2018 with live case broadcasts from Singapore, Sydney and Auckland. APSCVIR joins the world stage, meeting many of the international interventional societies who will visit APSCVIR 2018 including SIR, CIRSE, VIVA, LINC, SIO and SPIR. Interventional Radiologists and Trainees from Asia and the Pacific are welcomed and encouraged to submit papers and digital posters for the meeting. APSCVIR also welcomes the Vascular Society of New Zealand with combined sessions highlighting the latest vascular and endovascular advances.
On behalf of APSCVIR and IRSA, we look forward to welcoming you to Auckland in March 2018 – it’ll be a visit you will never forget!
