Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I hope that this welcome finds you and your families are safe and well in these continued trying times.

As we look forward to returning to some form of normalcy, I am personally looking forward to the 21st Congress of the International Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathologists (IAOP). This Congress will take place in Taipei, Taiwan June 21-25, 2022. The venue will be the Howard Civil Service International House, which is world-class venue, is in the heart of the Da’an District in Taipei City.

Dr. Yu-Feng Huang and the local organizing committee have assembled an outstanding program that will certainly be of interest to all participants. In addition to the numerous invited keynote speakers, the Congress will have its usual components including poster and oral sessions as well as the always entertaining Clinicopathological Conference (CPC). There will also be opportunities for travel grants and awards given for the best poster and oral presentations.

I hope to see as many of you as possible in Taipei. Please consider registering for the meeting in the near future. In addition, please pay particular attention to the abstract submission deadline.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

COVID-19 has disrupted our life since the beginning of 2020. Everyone suffered and struggled to stay safe and alive. With the wisdom of the mankind, the pandemic is being slowly relieved, especially with vaccines available. We are sure that the worst is passing, life will go on and air travel around the world is very likely in the near future.

Therefore, we are pleased to announce that the meeting of the 21st International Congress of Oral Pathology and Medicine, in conjunction with Taiwan Academy of Oral Pathology will be held in Taipei in person, from June 21 to June 25, 2022. The program will be interesting and educational. A one-day discussion on oral cancer and precancer is scheduled, as well as different topics such as bone and soft tissue tumors, salivary gland tumors, orofacial pain, burning mouth syndrome, lichen planus, and clinico-pathological conference, will highlight the meeting.

We hope you can join us at the 2022 IAOP in Taipei after years of banned travel. You can not only participate a well-plotted meeting but also enjoy the beautiful cultures in Taiwan.

Welcome to Taipei and look forward to seeing everyone.
