WELCOME MESSAGE

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Korean College of Rheumatology (KCR), I am pleased to invite you to the 39th KCR Annual Scientific Meeting and the 13th International Symposium to be held at the Seoul Dragon City, Seoul, Korea from May 16th to 18th, 2019.

I appreciate the chair of the scientific committee for the arrangement of the instructive programs. In the meeting, the world’s leading scholars and foreign guest speakers will present exciting lectures on various topics along with internationally renowned domestic speakers. Also, the KCR offers many opportunities to those who want to deliver their research at the meeting through oral presentations and poster presentations.

About Korea

The Korean Peninsula is located in North-East Asia. It is bordered by the Amnok River (Yalu River) to the northwest, separating Korea from China, and the Duman River (Tumen River) to the northeast which separates Korea from both China and Russia. The country itself is flanked by the Yellow Sea to its west and the East Sea to the east. There are several notable islands that surround the peninsula including Jejudo, Ulleungdo and Dokdo. The Korean peninsula is roughly 1,030 km (612 miles) long and 175 km (105 miles) wide at its narrowest point. Korea's total land area is 100,033 sq km, and it has a population of 49.8 million people (2011). Because of its unique geographical location, Korea is a very valuable piece of land and an international hub of Asia.
