Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am pleased to welcome you all to the 12th Congress of the World Federation of Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine in Seoul (WFSICCM Seoul 2015). This year’s congress is held in collaboration with the World Federation of Critical Care Nurses and World Federation of Pediatric Intensive and Critical Care Societies. This is the second time the Congress takes place in Asia where intensive and critical care medicine has undergone a marked development over the past decades.

Under the theme of "One Step Further: The Pursuit of Excellence in Critical Care," WFSICCM Seoul 2015 is ready to provide a diverse array of opportunities for knowledge exchange and professional networking between colleagues from different parts of the world. Indeed, this year’s meeting brings together physicians and nurses from across the globe including resource-limited regions to share insights and discuss current issues confronting each country.

Since ancient times, Asians have believed that the human body is maintained by the “gold mean” and harmony of yin and yang, and many recent studies prove that such medical philosophy is correct. Here in Korea, one of the birthplaces of the medical philosophy of harmony, I hope that all participants will take one more giant step forward in their professional sphere.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to participants, speakers, and chairpersons, who came all the way to Korea in Far East Asia. And my special thanks go to our sponsors and exhibitors, including Korea Tourism Organization, and Seoul Tourism Organization who have offered us steadfast support by covering a larger portion of the event hosting expenses. Also, I appreciate the dedication and support of our WFSICCM Seoul 2015 Organizing Committee members and Intercom Convention Services over the last four years. Your contributions greatly help us make WFSICCM Seoul 2015 happen.

Again, I welcome you all to Korea and wish you a productive congress.

Thank you.
