Welcome Message

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Korean Society of Osteoporosis (KSO), I would like to express our sincere appreciation to you all for attending the International Congress of Osteoporosis 2023 (ICO 2023) at the Dragon City Hotel in Seoul, Korea.

As ICO 2023 is the very first offline international congress since the COVID-19 pandemic, we are delighted to meet you in person and learn from your expertise and insights.

I would like to officially express my appreciation to the organizing committee members for preparing ICO 2023. It provides a platform for professionals and medical experts in the osteoporosis and sarcopenia field to come together and share their expertise and insights. The scientific program is varied and rich and includes a wide range of inspiring lectures and presentations. For this congress, we selected the latest knowledge in each field in which KSO members are interested and invited renowned domestic and international scholars for the lectures and symposium session, including the current presidents/active members of the Asian Federation of Osteoporosis Societies. We aim to provide excellent learning and networking opportunities to basic, translational, and clinical scientists, trainees, and allied health professionals.

We truly believe your insights will add tremendous value to the discussions and sessions. Moreover, your engagement and willingness to share your knowledge will make the congress more dynamic and engaging for everyone involved. We hope you will find ICO 2023 to be a beneficial experience and that you will have the opportunity to connect with other colleagues in the field.

We would like to kindly ask for your cooperation during the congress, both scientifically and socially, as success can only be achieved through your active participation.

Finally, we are honored to welcome you and all participants to ICO 2023 of the KSO in Seoul, Korea.

Sincerely yours,
