The Korean Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (KSPRS) will hold this year’s annual conference, “PRS KOREA 2020,” from Nov. 13-15.
PRS KOREA, the largest academic event on plastic surgery hosted by the society, used to be held as face-to-face meetings, but the association decided to switch to the online conference because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
KSPRS said the society is preparing for PRS KOREA 2020 based on its experience of providing online services, including its second training course and R&R Forum held in July.
This year’s event will be held side by side with the 23rd Scientific Meeting of the Korean Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association (KCPCA), Seoul Rhinoplasticy Forum 2020, 4th Asian Forum for Fat and Stem Cells, Seoul Breast Meeting 2020, Botulinum Toxin-Filler-Thread Academic Association, and Korean Academic Association of Plastic Surgery Research.
The plastic surgeon society has staged academic activities by holding conferences and publishing abstract collections since its foundation in 1966.
The PRS KOREA conference uses English in almost all the sessions as it had grown from an international academic event in 2011 to a conference on the 50th anniversary in 2016. More than 1,000 global and local plastic surgeons have completed registrations to participate in the forum.
