The leadership of ISSX and the Meeting Organizing Committee welcome attendees of the 11th International ISSX Meeting to participate in the social program of the meeting.

Opening Ceremony and Welcome Reception

You are cordially invited to join us at the Opening Ceremony on Sunday, June 12 at 18:00.  After the ceremony and presentation, meet with old friends and make new acquaintances at the welcome reception while you enjoy hors d’oeuvres and beverages and meet with the exhibiting companies.  This event is complimentary for full meeting registrants as well as for registered guests.

New Investigators Session and Reception

Calling all new investigators! The special session and reception for new investigators (those within ten years of having earned their highest degree) provides a wonderful opportunity to learn from each other while you build new friendships in a socially inviting environment.  Make plans to attend this event at 18:30 on Monday, June 13. This event is complimentary.


The banquet dinner will be held on Tuesday, June 14 at 18:30 at The Bay 101 Yacht Club - a 15,000 square foot marine complex located at Haeundae Beach. The Haeundae area is a cosmopolitan region in Busan surrounded by the sea, mountains and contemporary buildings and the views from our private event space will be spectacular as the night comes and the city’s lights illuminate our banquet dinner. For attendees staying at the Westin Chosun Hotel on Dongbaekseom Island, the banquet dinner is an especially quick and enjoyable walk. Please make plans to join your fellow meeting participants at a beautiful June evening dinner under the stars at the Bay 101 Yacht Club.  A separate registration fee applies.
