Dear colleagues and scholars from abroad,

The 57th Korean Society of Hypertension Scientific Meeting in Conjunction with Hypertension Seoul 2022 will be held in Seoul from 4th to 5th November, 2022. The theme of this year’s symposium is “New Challenges in Hypertension Management and Cardiovascular Prevention”.

Overcoming the 2-year period of COVID-19 pandemic, we have been struggling to recover the previous standard and the purposes of our meeting. The basic format of Hypertension Seoul 2022 will be off-line conventional conference but we will accept a few limited on-line participations for the scholars from abroad. All domestic speakers and panels will participate in an offline format to provide more realistic discussion and communications.

Plenary lecture will be delivered by prof. Reinhold H. Kreutz with title of “AF and Hypertension: Implications for the Brain and Beyond, Nephrocentric View”. A special lecture will be given by prof. Sadayoshi Ito with the title of “Mineralocorticoid Receptor Blockade in Hypertension Treatment” and a number of renowned international speakers will provide lectures and panel discussions. Now the field of hypertension is facing new challenges such as more and more elderly patient population, more intensive target blood pressure by safe and strong blood pressure control, prevention of heart failure and intervention for non-adherence. Role of hypertension specialists will be more and more important to prevent overall cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.

Abstract sessions will be held in offline format and the traveling of the foreign participants will be supported by KSH for their abstract presentation. Despite the huge challenges by COVID-19 pandemic, we believe we will show up our resilience through this meeting. Hypertension Seoul 2022 will be the reflection of our scientific activity, communication, and friendship among hypertension researchers in the world. Please join us and experience full offline scientific meeting together with the Korean Society of Hypertension and you will experience the vivid face-to-face meetings and scientific communications in real.

Best wishes to all of you.
