Dear Beloved Colleagues,
In Tamil, Vanakkam means Welcome. We welcome each and everyone of you with folded hands to the Gala event of the year, ASICON 2018 at Chennai and experience the excellent hospitality.
I am extremely delighted and honoured to welcome you to Chennai for the 78th Annual Conference of Association of Surgeons of India, ASICON 2018, which is the largest surgical event in India.
As far as our esteemed Association is concerned, Chennai is the Birth Place of ASI founded by Col. Pandalai in 1938 and our Head Quarters is also situated here. Tamil Nadu has produced 17 ASI Presidents and 15 Honorary Secretaries so far and every one of them has contributed to the growth of ASI. I am very much enthralled to be part of it as the Honorary Secretary to welcome all of you to my home state of Tamil Nadu.
ASICON 2018 has many unique specialties as being organized on the 80th year of ASI formation, 25 years after being conducted in Chennai. The Organizing team under the leadership of Dr. A. Rathnaswami, Dr. K. Vinayak Senthil, Dr. K. Vivekananda Subramania Nathan and Dr. G. Chandrasekar are well charged up and have started the work well in advance to make the conference as the landmark ASICON of the century.
Chennai is one of the oldest metropolitan cities of our nation and is well connected with all the parts of India as well as the entire globe. Chennai Trade Center which is the venue of the Conference is one of the best convention centers in the country and it will provide the best space for academics and social events. We at Head Quarters will provide the best academics which will be a feast to the delegates.
It is my earnest appeal to Welcome each and everyone to register at the earliest and participate in this mega event along with your family. I assure you that we will provide you the best hospitality.
Eagerly looking forward to meet you at Chennai.
(Means Thank You in Tamil)
