Aloha! On behalf of the APPS Council members and the Congress Organizing Committee, I am pleased to invite you to the 8th Congress of APPS to be held in October, 2018 in Maui, Hawaii.

Since its foundation in 2011, Asian Pacific Prostate Society(APPS) has grown rapidly as the only Prostate Society in Asian Pacific region providing venues for urologists to exchange their ideas and research results on prostate disease which include prostate cancer, BPH and prostatitis.

Especially, it is my greatest privilege to co-host this year's congress with AUA Western Section and to interact with urologists of WSAUA. Hopefully, you will find the congress stimulating and fully enjoy the beautiful scenery of Maui.

Hope to see you all in Maui!

Jun Hyuk Hong, M.D.
Secretary General of APPS
