Dear Colleagues and Friends,
Welcome to the 6th International Workshop on Gynecologic Oncology of the Asian Society of Gynecologic Oncology (ASGO Workshop 2020) in Taiwan!
As the president of ASGO, I cordially invite you to the 6th International Workshop on Gynecologic Oncology of ASGO, which will be held on December 19th and 20th 2020 in CHANG YUNG-FA FOUNDATION International Convention Center, Taipei, Taiwan. ASGO was established by leaders of Japanese and Korean gynecologists in consideration of the need for an Asian regional society dedicated to gynecologic cancer, and held its first meeting in Seoul in 2008. At present, gynecological oncology societies from 11 countries and regions have participated, and it has become a truly unified organization. Six biennial meetings and five international workshops have been held to date, however this ASGO Workshop 2020 in Taiwan will be the first time for the congress to be held outside of Japan and Korea. This means that this workshop will propel ASGO out of its founders’ zone, Japan and Korea, and begin to truly branch out across Asia. The development of surgical techniques and new treatments in recent years is remarkable, and we must learn and acquire them without delay. Let the exchange of knowledge and experience with our Asian colleagues be a symbol of the ASGO Workshop 2020!
ASGO Workshop 2020 will warmly welcome you with numerous scientific programs as well as traditional Taiwanese culture. We sincerely look forward to meeting you at the 6th International Workshop on Gynecologic Oncology of the Asian Society of Gynecologic Oncology in 2020.
