Welcome Message - Chairman IPRAS 2009
Dear Friends & Colleagues,

Greetings from New Delhi.

On behalf of the Association of Plastic Surgeons of India, the Organizing Committee extends a warm and cordial invitation to the 15th World Congress of the International Confederation of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, to be held at New Delhi, India from 29th November - 3rd December 2009.

I hope, you are aware that this premier quadrennial scientific Congress has now been scheduled to become a biennial event. This would definitely facilitate holding the World Congress in different continents, rotating it between the developed and the developing world, and provide for more interaction. This meeting has come back to India after an interval of more than 20 years. The organizing committee is fully geared to host this mega event and promises to leave no stone unturned to make it one of the finest meets in the history of IPRAS.

Please register in advance to avail the ‘early bird registration’ offer. The Registration fee is at a substantial discount to previous Congress’, and probably for the first time ever in the history of IPRAS Congress’, it has been segregated into ‘Low income’ and ‘High income’ countries, in accordance with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) rankings. We are hopeful that this more closely reflects the paying capacity of individuals in different nations and provides a unique opportunity to delegates from the developing world to participate in the Congress.

New Delhi is a beautiful, modern and bustling city, where east meets west in science and healthcare, fueled by electronic communication, e-health and medical informatics. The culinary delights and radiance of our ‘historic’ culture provide the ‘spice route’ to savor ‘Incredible India’. So friends, mark these dates in your calendar now. We look forward to your wholehearted support in making the Congress a grand success.
