Dear Colleagues, friends and guests,
On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 15th International Congress of the Oriental Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (15th OSAPS 2016), I extend my warmest welcome to all participants and distinguished guest speakers from all over the world. Twenty years have passed since the last OSAPS conference in Taiwan. We are truly honored to host the OSAPS conference yet again. The Congress theme "Contemporary Oriental Plastic Surgery" has incorporated many informative expert sessions in various and challenging aspects of aesthetic surgery. I deeply believe that our participants will benefit from our highly educational scientific program and put that advanced knowledge in practice to provide better patient care thereafter.
In addition to the outstanding scientific part, we have also arranged several interesting social events including visiting the famous National Palace Museum and a gala dinner. We would like to extend our warm hospitality to invite all participants to attend our Congress social program.
A conference of this scale would not be possible without the support of our exhibiting companies. Please spend some time with all of them during the breaks. Taipei city is a modern metropolitan city with many sightseeing attractions. I hope you will make time in your travel schedule to visit these regions and enjoy Taiwanese cuisine and culture.
I would like to express my great gratitude to all distinguished speakers, the Local Organizing Committee and colleagues for their hard work and self-sacrifice in the various aspects of the preparatory process.
Wishing you a wonderful memorable experience in Taipei.
Chien-Tzung Chen, MD
