It will be an honor for us to welcome you in Istanbul for the “8th Asia Pacific Cervical Spine Meeting”. The main goal of the APCSS Meeting will be to pave the way for a scientific environment where recent developments in cervical spine are reviewed, the results of research are discussed and ideas are exchanged. We will also be discussing the regional and global aspects of social, political and economic issues related to spine surgery. We look forward to an exciting meeting where many new discoveries will be presented and challenging discussions on current controversies will take place.

The meeting venue, Barbaros Point Hotel, is located at the heart of the city where business, cultural, gastronomic and commercial districts present. We will do our best to ensure that the social program will be as impressive as the scientific program. Because of its location, infrastructure and the facilities it provides, we believe that the Barbaros Point Hotel will be the right choice of venue for social activities as well.

Istanbul is the only city in the world built on two continents. It stands on the shores of the uniquely appealing Bosphorus strait (Istanbul Bogazi) where the waters of the Black Sea intersect with those of the Sea of Marmara and the Golden Horn estuary.

Istanbul is a city meant to be a capital and has indeed been the capital of three great empires Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman which dominated the world. The city is also a meeting place of people from many different religions and cultures who come together and live in peace. Today, it houses the precious remains of these civilizations and stands with all her glamour and mysticism as a harmonious link between east and west, antique and modern. It is one of the most outstanding, enchanting and lively cities of the world. Furthermore, it has an atmosphere of its own with its life-style, people and numerous attractions.

We are sure that Istanbul will be an excellent venue for the APCSS 2014 and will endow us with many precious and long-lasting memories to cherish.

We look forward to seeing you in Istanbul in 2014

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It’s our great honor and pleasure to invite you to participate the 7th annual meeting of Asia-Pacific Cervical Spine Society 2013, August 22-23 in Sapporo. This meeting was established by Dr. D. H. Yoon in 2007, and was greatly developed with participants from many Asian countries. The meeting venues in the past were Seoul, Beijing, Sydney, Bali and Chiang Mai. Recently our international executive committee covers 16 countries of Asian countries. This is our first opportunity to welcome APCSS members and participants to Japan.

This meeting is essentially composed of neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons for the purpose of mutual understanding and exchanging concepts and ideas of spinal surgery of each society. We believe you will be able to learn lessons of spinal surgery from both societies. With the aging of our society, spinal surgery becomes more and more important to maintain the quality of life among the elderly people. Therefore, we need more discussion about indications, techniques, and surgical outcome about spinal surgery.

Minimally invasive spinal surgery is global trend, and variety of surgical tools and techniques have been introduced. We are sure that we will know the standard spinal surgery with future trend at the end of the meeting.

In addition to the academic aspects, this meeting has another important purpose to make friendship among all Asian countries. It is good to know many new friends and deepen the relationship of old friends through the meeting. Sapporo in this particular time is wonderful. It is sunny and breezy. You may enjoy several kinds of outdoor activities and sightseeing.

We will prepare for the fruitful scientific programs for all the participants. We hope we will receive many interesting abstracts from you. We are looking forward to seeing you in Sapporo in August 2013.
