Dear APAS Members and All Arthroplasty colleagues
With many affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, I wish only that you and your families keep safe until we defeat this affliction.

Because of the global restrictions, the planned annual scientific meeting in Bali for this year has again been deferred until 2022. In the interim and to serve our members the executive has decided and progressed substantially with planning for the 21st ASM of APAS as a Virtual conference in July. This will be a 3-day conference held over 3 consecutive Saturdays to maximise your attendance and participation. Time zone issues are always difficult in the virtual space and to accommodate the region the conference will run between Midday to 8 pm AEST (UTC/GMT + 10). The dates of the conference this year will be Saturday 10th, 17th and 24th July.

A/Prof. Rami Sorial

Scientific Chairman APAS


Dear APAS Friends and Colleagues,

First of all, I would like to pay my deepest respect and condolences for all the lives lost to COVID-19 all over the world, especially our brothers and sisters who served on the front line of pandemic management. We have all been fighting and praying for the pandemic to be over soon since the vaccination had started since earlier this year. Billions of lives have been affected by this terrible virus, from the survivors to the family members left behind, from the change of lifestyles to adoption of new habits, from social distancing to online presence. I have full confidence that together, we can get through this tragedy.

Due to the COVID pandemic and ensuing worldwide travel restrictions, we have no choice but to postpone our planned Hip & Knee Summit to August 23-27, 2022 in Bali. To fill its void and keep our education program going, we have planned a 3-day Combined APAS, ASIA & APKS Virtual Meeting which will be held on three consecutive Saturdays on July 10, 17 and 24, 2021. The meeting will be fully virtual. As the concurrent President of Asia Pacific Arthroplasty Society (APAS), Arthroplasty Society in Asia (ASIA), and Asia Pacific Knee Society (APKS), it is my honor to invite you to participate at our webinar.
