Dear National Delegate, Plastic Surgeon and Colleague:
I hope that you are having a great summer, and we are sure you are getting to the point of planning your fall schedule.
As you know from previous ICOPLAST communication, we are in the midst of finalizing the exciting November 9 one day ICOPLAST symposium scientific program to be held in conjunction with the KSPRS 76th Congress, in Seoul, Korea, November 9-12, 2018.
The November 9 ICOPLAST program will include a microsurgery symposium in the morning. The afternoon will be a comprehensive craniofacial symposium. ICOPLAST guest speakers include Dr. Eric Arnaud, Paris, current President of the International Society of Craniofacial Surgery; Dr. Derek Steinbacher, Yale University ; Dr. Jesse Taylor, Childrens Hospital of Pennsylvania.
We are also pleased to welcome Dr. Fu Chan Wei, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital and Chang Gung University, and Dr. Matthew Hanasono from MD Anderson Medical Center in Houston, Texas as special guest speakers
There is still time to submit an abstract! The deadline is 31 August 2018, through the KSPRS Website http://prskorea.org/conference/2018_html/p_about_welcome.php . The format of this year symposium will be twelve high impact presentations split between micro and cranio, chosen from the abstracts submitted for the ICOPLAST day. However, if it is not retained for the ICOPLAST day, your abstract may still be accepted for the KSRPRS program by our South Korean colleagues and the abstract committee for presentation between the 9h and 12th of November.

Looking forward to seeing you in Seoul.
