AOCC 2020
The 8th Annual Meeting of Asian Organization for CROHN'S & COLITIS
Gateway to Excellence in IBD Research and Practice
June 18 - 20, 2020 Busan, Korea
Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The Organizing Committee welcomes you to the 8th Annual Meeting of the Asian Organization for Crohn’s & Colitis (AOCC 2020) held virtually in Korea from December 16 to 18, 2020.

The world has been faced a fair bit of challenges this year due to COVID-19, which led us to make the difficult decision of moving the congress from June to December. Unfortunately, as the global situation has not markedly improved, it was difficult to anticipate how the travel restrictions for each country (and their affiliations) would change by December. After careful consideration, the AOCC 2020 Organizing Committee decided to move forward with a Virtual Congress to address the concerns of participants who are unable to confirm their participation and to ensure the stability of the schedule.

As our priority is always the health and safety of our attendees, as well as the patients and communities they serve, the decision has been made, and we thank you for your understanding.

Under the theme “Gateway to excellence in IBD research and practice,” the detailed disciplines of IBD from the present to the future will be in focus. World-renowned speakers will present virtually as scheduled. Additionally, oral presentations and e-Posters will be presented on our virtual platform. We are planning an interactive meeting with Q & A streamed in real-time that online participants can access through the chat function on the virtual platform. This will be an exciting new opportunity for all gastroenterologists, surgeons, pediatricians, basic scientists, and nurses around the world to engage with our speakers.

We would like to take a moment to express our solidarity and recognize our colleagues and everyone fighting on the frontlines against COVID-19. Therefore, let us continue to stand together as we are today, persevere, and ultimately overcome this pandemic and emerge tomorrow stronger and wiser. Thank you for your participation and we look forward to welcoming you on the AOCC 2020 Virtual Platform.

Best wishes,

Yoon Tae Jeen, M.D, Ph.D.
