Shangri-La Hotel, Surabaya, Indonesia 

Dear all,

It is an honor to welcoming you to the 11th Asian Congress of Neurological Surgeons, Surabaya,Indonesia. I am overjoyed to have you all...

The ACNS was started in 1993 along the lines of Dr. Kanno's dream. We had invited a hundredyoung Neurosurgeons sponsoring their stay and registration... the dream continues on..... And wepromise you that our dream of equality in opportunities for Neurosurgeons from the developingcountries is a dream we will keep alive..

Every council needs to have a journal and our official journal, the Asian Journal of Neurosurgerystarted in 1997. It has come a long way and quality articles from Asia and abroad adorn it thesedays.. We have a young and dynamic team who are equally adept at learning from the masters andinnovating as well...

The ACNS has also been involved with the education of women in Neurosurgery and, as I see themembers of AWNA gathered here, I am proud that in a continent like Asia where so many constraintsare present for average women, we have a sizeable group in a very difficult branch of surgery.... Ifyou remember, the first woman who scaled Everest was from Asia....

For the nextfive days, we have a scenario where there are the best teachers available in Asia andwe also have eager young Neurosurgeons.. We hope that both interact and I am sure, before long,the masters would sit back in admiration of their wards... and today's young Neurosurgeons will inturn lead the young neurosurgeons of tomorrow towards betterment of Neurosurgery....This wouldbe my concept of Utopia.. Let's all, for the next five days forget those lines on the maps dividing usinto different countrymen and work as a common force... Let's do our bit of making this world a betterplace...

Thank you.  


Prof. Yoko Kato, MD, PhD
President, ACNS (Asian Congress of Neurological Surgeons)
