The 57th Annual PAPS meeting is April 28 to May 2, 2024 in Hong Kong.

From conquering mountain trails to exploring neon-lit streetscapes, Hong Kong is a city that offers a myriad of possibilities and experiences. Go from ancient temples to glistening skyscrapers, then dip into bustling city markets before decamping to seaside villages. The only question is — where to start? Perhaps at the 57th Annual Meeting of the Pacific Association of Pediatric Surgeons! Abstracts accepted for full oral presentation are invited to submit a manuscript for publication in the PAPS issue of the Journal of Pediatric Surgery. Come see why the PAPS is the best and friendliest surgical society in the world!

What's more, it will be a joint conference with the Asian Association of Pediatric Surgeons (AAPS) April 27 to 30, 2024!  There will be a special workshop on advanced neonatal and pediatric thoracoscopy, including oesophageal atresia repair on April 27!

The PAPS 2024 meeting is IN-PERSON only. No virtual or hybrid option is available. See you in Hong Kong!

Greetings from your Local Organizing Chair

Dear friends,

On behalf of the Pacific Association of Pediatric Surgeons, it is our great honor to welcome you to the 57th Annual Meeting (PAPS 2024) to be held in Hong Kong, China, from the 28th April to 2nd May 2024. 

Regarding the field of Pediatric Surgery, PAPS meeting is one of the most important periodical healthcare events and has received great attention from worldwide as well. We believe that the congress will be a good opportunity for international speakers, leading experts, surgeons, as well as all medical staffs related in this field to join and share their experiences. Furthermore, we could establish more cooperation and extend our professional network.

The meeting is a good occasion to promote and present our beautiful and peaceful Hong Kong to all international friends and colleagues. Beside the scientific program, there is a variety of touristy and entertainment activities for all delegates. Coming to the PAPS 2024, coming to Hong Kong, you will definitely enjoy China for its unique blend of culture and heritage.

We look forward to welcoming you to Hong Kong, China.

Thank You

 

Kenneth Kak-yuen WONG

Chairman, Local Organising Committee

About Us

Despite PAPS being one of the largest pediatric surgery associations in the world, we share a strong sense of family with fellow members and guests.  We have a lot of fun at meetings, and are much more relaxed than any other surgical society. We don't even allow neckties at any PAPS meeting....wear one and it will be quickly cut off!

Join PAPS to share ideas and meet great new friends!
