Esteemed Members of ASI,
It’s a great honor and privilege to have been bestowed upon the 79th ASICON, Bhubaneswar and as the Organizing Secretary I take this opportunity to invite all my surgical fraternity to Bhubaneswar, the ideal destination for such a mega event .
This inflicts within me a challenge and I want to apprise my National leaders and the Executive committee members that the responsibility they have reposed on my shoulders would not go in vain and I promise to fulfill their expectations by a smooth conduction of this mammoth mega event.
ASICON is being hosted in Odisha for the 4th time, since it’s inception in 1938. For conducting a mega event like ASICON, one needs to do lots of planning, execution and a dream to achieve it . Getting a opportunity to host ASICON had been my dream since the ASICON that took place here in Bhubaneswar, way back in 2007, where I was a part of the organizing team, as the joint organizing secretary. At last, with the blessings and support of my National EC and fellow surgeons , I was able to achieve this milestone.
Surgical education, training and fellowship forms the backbone of ASI’s Golden mission , ie; “ ASI VISION & MISSION - 2019-2021 coined by our leaders, Dr Arvind Kumar and Dr P.Raghuram. I have complete faith in my young, energetic, devoted organizing team & their responsibilities and I am sure our mighty efforts will ignite the Association in all spheres and the glow from this fire can show light to our dreamt Mission-Vision. I hope this congress would be the largest podium to showcase the scientific work done by the members of the Association of Surgeons of India. We expect the best of the surgeons to participate in this scientific extravaganza, but we as organizers would be instrumental in bringing together the best minds in our field of surgery.
ASICON 2019 Bhubaneswar would be model conference & delegate centric, 1st of its kind, where you will witness improved academics with compact scientific sessions along with social events. I heartily welcome you all along with your family to this landmark conference & would expect you to contribute your best to make this an exceptional and memorable event. Your participation and eminent contribution will greatly boost our mammoth efforts in planning and sculpturing this conference of yours to an exceptional and fruitful one.
Apart from scientific agenda we have planned social events of visiting the best of the tourist destinations of odisha which would be within your reach.
The entire organizing team is working day and night and I am sure they will make this event memorable to all of us. We also expect that no surgeon should afford to miss this MEGA EVENT. I request you all to register and be a part of this event.
Looking forward to meet and greet you personally at Bhubaneswar.
JAI HIND. LONG LIVE ASI
DR SREEJOY PATNAIK
