Welcome to the 53rd Annual Scientific Meeting of the Pacific Association of Pediatric Surgeons. This has been a challenging year with the COVID-19 crisis impacting all of us in so many ways including how we care for patients and share information. This year's meeting was originally scheduled in Tainan, Taiwan for April of 2020, then postponed to November, and now changed to virtual. The dates will stay the same as our must recent adjustment, specifically November 8-12th, and a full schedule will be published soon. The format will be new but we promise to make it educational and interesting with some added virtual excitement thrown in. Podium oral presentations will be converted to live Zoom presentations and the videos will be shown in real time. Moderators will bring in each presenter and the audience of hundreds will be invited to ask questions. All posters and quick-shot oral presentations will be converted to audio PDF's which is very easy for each presenter to do. These presentations will count for your CV's and presentations eligible for publication will still be published in Journal of Pediatric Surgery.

More details will be published on this website soon and we will be contacting presenters directly with instructions. Thanks for joining us virtually!
