Dear Members and Colleagues,

The Korean Society of Endoscopic & Laparoscopic Surgeons (KSELS) will hold the 36th Annual Meeting of KSELS & 2015 International Symposiumat the Silla Hotel Jeju,on May 29-30(Fri-Sat), 2015.

The congressconsists of MIS-specific symposiums and special lectures on various fields under the theme of "Sharing Expertise Beyond Knowledge". Our Society has tried our best to make excellent and exciting scientific and social programs. Especially, we put one specific session in the program to have an in-depth discussionon the medical ethics/legal issueby inviting specific expertson this field.

To continue our global communication with international societies, we have the SAGES Joint Seminar again in this year. We are very honoured to invite two distinguished speakers from SAGES; Prof. Daniel Herron, the SAGES's Program Committee Chair, for a lecture on the certification system of metabolic and bariatric surgery, and Prof. Barry Salkyfor a lecture on the present and future of laparoscopic colorectal surgery. The China-Korea Joint Symposium will also provide a chance for our members to exchange up-to-date knowledge with Prof. Zheng Min-Hua, the President of Chinese Society of Laparo-Endoscopic Surgery (CSLES) and several other renowned professors from China.

In addition, the session for 2D and 3D unedited video demonstrations will offer good opportunities for young surgeons to acquire better techniques for various MIS procedures. To encourage young surgeons' participation in this congress including surgical residents, travel awards will be paid to all presenters whose abstracts are accepted for oral, mini and video presentations. A laparoscopic suture competition program will bedefinitely another fun for them.

We would like to express oursincere gratitude to all the speakers who have accepted lectures. We particularly appreciate the Scientific Committee Chair, Prof Hyung-Ho Kim and the Committee Members who have devoted themselves to prepare for such a high quality academic program.

We strongly hope to meet all members and colleagues together in Jejudo, the most beautiful island of this country, with enjoyinga finelate-spring weather.

Thank you very much.
