Welcome Message
Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Korean Osteoporosis Society (KSO) is delighted to announce that the 4th Biennial International Congress of Osteoporosis 2021 (ICO 2021) will be held in Seoul, South Korea. Furthermore, it is our greatest honor to welcome doctors, researchers and many other scientific colleagues who are interested in the field of osteoporosis for their participation.

Many countries have been struggling with the COVID-19 pandemic since last year. The ICO 2020 was also postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic but this year, the ICO 2021 will be held from November 5th through November 7th. The congress sessions will be a hybrid of in-person and online formats. Currently, there are tremendous efforts to get as many people vaccinated as possible. Let us hope that the COVID-19 pandemic situation improves for all of us in the near future.

Our main theme for this year’s symposium is “Paradigm Shifts in Osteoporosis”.

With the continuing increase in the aging population and the occurrence of osteoporotic fractures, we believe that we need to be more proactive in treating, managing, and preventing osteoporosis patients in order to minimize osteoporotic fractures. Thus, it's time to implement a new strategy as well as a novel treatment for osteoporosis.

We look forward to engaging with as many of you at the meaningful and thought provoking ICO 2021 and pledge to make this symposium an unforgettable occasion for all of the participants.

Cordially yours,

Young Jun Won,
The President of the Korean Society of Osteoporosis.
