We are very pleased to invite you to the 9th East Asian Conference of Neurointervention (EACoN) to be held on August 24-25, 2018 in Busan, Korea. Looking back to the history of EACoN, Korean-Chinese Joint Meeting of Interventional Neuroradilogy (KCJMIN) was held in 2007 and 2009 in Korea. In 2010, Japan was officially joined the Meeting and the 1st EACoN was held in Japan. Since then, Japan, China and Korea hold the conference by turns every year. This year, the 9th EACoN will be held in Busan along with the KSIN Summer Intensive Course again.
EACoN2018 will provide an open forum for exchanging new information and ideas where participants from Asian countries can have an opportunity to exchange up-to-date new knowledge and recent research results in the field of neurointervention, as well as to promote fellowship. Through the presentations and discussions on practical experience we will solidify our friendship as well as professional collaboration.
We will do our best to make a success of this year’s EACoN based on our sprit and tradition. With the efforts of organizing committee members, we are sure this conference will be one of the most informative meetings Asian communities.
Busan is the second largest city in Korea. The city's natural endowments and rich history have resulted in Busan's increasing reputation as a world class city for tourism and culture, and it is also becoming renowned as a hot spot destination for international conventions.
Organizing committee believe that a greater number of participants are the key to the success of the conference, we look forward to welcoming you to Busan this summer.
With best regards,
