Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I am very honored and pleased to welcome you to the 12th Asia Pacific Symposium on Cochlear Implants and Related Sciences (APSCI2019) in Tokyo on November 27-30, 2019. This symposium was first held in Kyoto in 1997 by Prof. Iwao Honjo and the third APSCI was held in Osaka in 2001 by Prof. Takeshi Kubo. Since then, APSCI has become the leading conference in this field and now attracts delegates not only from the Asia Pacific regions, but from all over the world.
The APSCI will gather prominent global experts in this field including basic scientists, clinical specialists, and researchers. Productive clinical debates will be held on various topics related to hearing, speech, and balance disorders.
The venue of the APSCI2019 is at Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku, the center of Tokyo, and within walking distance, there are many hotels with reasonable prices. From the venue, you can easily access many sightseeing places; such as Asakusa, Akihabara, and Shibuya, by train, subway, bus, or tax: You can also visit Kamakura within 1.5 hours and Kyoto within 2.5 hours. Late Novemeber is one of the best seasons to visit Japan, because you can enjoy the beautiful colors of the fall.
Social Programs will also be arranged in order to create fond memories of the meeting for the delegates to take home with. We hope this meeting would be an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas, share knowledges, join old friends, and create new friendships. We would be delighted to show the Japanese hospitality of ‘Omotenashi’ to you and to your distinguished friends.
