The 19th Annual Scientific Meeting, Indonesian Association of Clinical Pathologist and Laboratory Medicine is a routine activity organized by the Indonesian Association of Clinical Pathologist and Laboratory Medicine (IACPaLM) once a year. This current annual scientific meeting is unique because it will be held in conjunction with the 16th Asian Society for Clinical Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (ASCPaLM) Congress.
“Human Empowering Through Advanced Technology in Laboratory Medicine” is a theme that is delivered in this conference. This theme was chosen considering that in the current era of digital revolution, laboratory technology is developing rapidly, and the roles of doctors and reliable medical specialist performance are expected to be the spearhead of digitalization-based laboratory technology development. The development of this technology will also ultimately play a role in empowering an excellent individual, especially in screening, diagnosis and monitoring disease progression and therapy, which has become a trend in the last decade.
The 16th ASCPaLM Congress and 19th ASM-IACPaLM become a venue for Clinical Pathologists, other specialists, general practitioners and research scientists to improve scientific skills, as well as mastering laboratory technology and Clinical Pathology, through workshops, scientific symposia, plenary lecture and meetings with the experts. This activity is also supported by an updated medical equipment and laboratory exhibition. Oral presentations and scientific posters can also be a means for Clinical Pathologists to further participate in developing their roles in research and publication. This event will be held from 7 to 9 October 2020.
Finally, I look forward to your participation and presence at the 16th Asian Society for Clinical Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (ASCPaLM) Congress and the 19th Annual Scientific Meeting Indonesian Association of Clinical Pathologist and Laboratory Medicine (ASM-IACPaLM) . I hope that this event will be of great benefit to our participants as well as to the rest of the medical community.
