Dear members of the Korean Urological Association and nurses!

Greetings from Korea.

First of all, I wish the safety and health of all members of the Korean Urological Association, nurses, and your families.

I am honored and pleased to invite you to the 73rd Korean Urological Association Annual Meeting to be held on 3-6 November 2021 at COEX, Seoul, hoping that the COVID-19 pandemic would be stabilized.

Due to COVID-19, domestic and international academic conferences are being postponed or canceled or are being held online. Hoping that herd immunity will be formed, to some extent, through epidemiological immunizations, this annual conference will be held offline in which we can meet face to face.

The annual meeting is an international conference held in Korea, and diverse academic programs have been prepared. Special lectures and presentations will be delivered by outstanding researchers from various Asian countries such as Japan, China, Australia, as well as from international urological societies including European Urological Association, American Urological Association, and Société Internationale d'Urologie.

I sincerely hope that many members and nurses will be attending the site and hope that this regular academic conference will become a festival not only focusing on academic activity but also refreshment.

Lastly, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the committee members and staff for their hard work preparing for this regular academic meeting despite current difficulties.

I hope that you and your family keep safe and sound in the era of the COVID-19 pandemic, and I look forward to seeing you at the 73rd Korean Urological Association Annual Meeting.
