On behalf of the China Medical University Hsinchu Hospital, I am welcoming you to the first-ever virtual forum of ICRSF. As we know that the COVID-19 pandemic continuously restricted our traveling, and it prevented us from holding the Conference in Hsinchu. However, we are excited about the opportunities of having a virtual conference; a virtual meeting is an innovative way of gathering colorectal surgery experts worldwide and using the digital platform during the pandemic period to reach a broad audience across the regions.
ICRSF shares an insight into the cutting-edge surgical techniques and innovative research in colorectal surgery. Participating at ICRSF 2021 allows you to discuss the latest advances in Colorectal Surgery and receive state-of-the-art clinical and basic science updates. There are 20 sections in this meeting, and you will be able to interact with high-level speakers easily and connect virtually with your peers.
We look forward to an exciting meeting, and we are confident that you will gain new knowledge. Finally, I would like to thank all my members of colorectal surgery in the China Medical University system for the excellent preparation and organization of this meeting.
With warm regards,
William Tzu-Liang Chen, M.D Forum Director of ICRSF 2021 Superintendent, China Medical University Hsinchu Hospital
