Dear colleagues and scholars from abroad,

The 55th Korean society of hypertension scientific meeting in conjunction with Hypertension Seoul 2021 will be held in Seoul from 5th to 6th November, 2021. The title of this year’s symposium is “Advances in Hypertension Management”.

Since its foundation in 1994, by the great efforts, active research and academic activities of the successive executives and members of the Korean Society of Hypertension, our society has developed rapidly in both quality and quantity. In 2018, the Korean Society of Hypertension revised Korean Society of Hypertension guideline.

During the 2-year period of COVID-19 pandemic with recent surge of delta variant, we have been struggling to maintain the standard and the purposes of our meeting. At the moment, the basic format of this meeting will be on-line streaming conference but we will also prepare a space for the limited number of audiences. Domestic speakers and panels will participate in an offline format to provide more realistic discussion and communications. In addition, a number of the foreign invited speakers will participate via online lectures and panel discussion, which have been arranged according to the time difference. With regard to the domestic abstract sessions(Clinical Research Award and Young Investigator Award), the presenters will take part in the session on the scene for the small group discussion and Q&A in real. Meantime, the foreign abstract session will be maintained in on-line format with Q&A board by on-line participant and referees. We have been sequentially holding the Joint Symposiums with the representative Society. In this meeting, there will be two joint symposiums. One is the joint symposium between Korean Society of Hypertension and Taiwan Hypertension Society with the session title of “Clinical Application of BP Measurements in the Latest Hypertension Guidelines”. The other one is between Korean Society of Hypertension and International Hypertension Society.

Plenary lecture will be delivered by prof. Catherine Llorens-Cortes with title of “Brain Renin Angiotensin System in the Management of Hypertension and Heart Failure” and a number of renowned international speakers will provide lectures and panel discussions.

Despite these huge challenges by COVID-19 pandemic, we believe we will make a breakthrough by the will and with the passion. Hypertension Seoul 2021 will be the reflection of our scientific activity, communication, and friendship for hypertension researchers in the world. Please join us and experience fully activated scientific meeting together with Korean Hypertension Society and you will find resilience of our society and the hope of scientific communications in the future.

Best wishes to all of you.

September 2021

Prof. Gheun-Ho Kim, Chairperson of KSH,

Prof. Sang-Hyun Ihm, President of KSH,
