Dear colleagues and friends,
On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to personally invite you to join us at the 7th Cachexia Conference of the Society on Sarcopenia, Cachexia, and Wasting Disorders from December 9th through December 11th, 2013. This conference will be a great opportunity to meet and discuss in person all issues concerning cachexia, sarcopenia, and body wasting disorders with leading scientists and clinicians from around the world. The program consists of keynote lectures, plenary sessions, both basic and clinical science tracks, and poster presentations. Whether you are a basic science expert or a clinician, or an educator in this field of growing interest, the organizing committee promises you that you will find the program of the 7th Cachexia Conference is worthy of attending.
It is my great pleasure to announce that this year’s event will be held in Kobe, Japan. As you may know, the conference was originally planned to take place in Japan in 2011, however, due to the devastating disaster that had happened earlier in the year, the society had to take a precautious measure to change venues and postpone the opportunity to hold the conference in Japan. Although Kobe is probably known around the world mostly for Kobe Beef, the city can offer much more as it is a historical port where a mixture of Western and Japanese cultures meet. While you are visiting Kobe for the conference, we truly hope that you will take advantage of the opportunity to explore the city as well.
We are looking forward to meeting you at the 7th International Conference of the Society on Sarcopenia, Cachexia, and Wasting Disorders in Kobe, Japan.
