• Dear Colleagues and Friends,

    On behalf of the Organizing Committee and in collaboration with The Korean Society of Pediatric Infectious Diseases (KSPID), it is my great pleasure to invite you to the 10th Asian Congress of Pediatric Infectious Diseases (ACPID 2020), taking place in Seoul from the 28th to the 31st of October, 2020.

    ACPID is one of the most prominent events in pediatric infectious diseases in Asia. The scientific program this year will take in the most critical issues in pediatric infectious diseases, with experts from around the world making this congress a stimulating arena for in-depth discussion on recent advances.There will also be great social events that will provide opportunities for networking and developing our friendships.

    With the conference taking place in late October, the weather in Seoul will be Autumnal. It is a great time of year to visit and explore everything the city has to offer, from K-pop and K-beauty to ancient temples and street markets. The days should be pleasantly warm and dry (around 16°C) and the evenings and nights refreshingly cool but comfortable (around 7°C). You'll also notice when you arrive at the airport that nearly every sign is translated, so you'll have no problems getting around or using public transport.

    Along with our colleagues and partners, ACPID 2020 promises to make your visit to Seoul an unforgettable one. Please join us for an outstanding scientific meeting that will enrich all participants’ knowledge and enhance the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of pediatric infectious diseases for all children in Asia.

    “Together, Let’s Move Towards the Best for Children”.
