Message from President

On behalf of the new executive board members of ASPIRE, I would like to express our most sincere thanks to our outgoing secretary general Prof PC Wong, also a founder member of ASPIRE, for ceaselessly steering the society ever since it was established 14 years ago. We are also indebted to our past Presidents Prof Bruno Lunenfeld, Prof. Shin Yong Moon, Prof. Yoshiharu Morimoto, Prof. Robert Norman, Prof. Jaideep Malhotra, Prof. Chii-Ruey Tzeng and Prof Budi Wiweko for all their efforts in bringing about continuing growth of ASPIRE.

The last two years have been a most unusual and challenging time in the history of ASPIRE because of the Covid-19 pandemic. We had to cancel, at the last minute, our planned annual congress in Manila, Philippines in 2020 and reschedule it a year later as a virtual congress from 30 April 2021 to 9 May 2021. However, I am most pleased to say that our first virtual congress has been a great success, registered by over 7700 participants from 116 countries and attended by 3215 participants from 95 countries, thanks to the tremendous hard work of the organizing committee chaired by Prof Chii-Ruey Tzeng. We do plan to hold our next congress in a virtual format in 2022, more information will be announced.
