Dear Colleagues & Friends,
International Prostate Forum (IPF) has been organised since 1993 which included scientific talks on prostatic diseases covering prostate cancer, benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostatic infections, surgical advancements and basic science research.
We are pleased to inform you that we will be organising 18th IPF as a virtual meeting on 12 December 2020 Saturday due to ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. On 13 December 2020 Sunday, we will have a half day poster/oral/video session where accepted studies will be presented and discussed.
We have prepared a very attractive scientific program that we have international speakers. The new information and programme will be announced within a short period of time.
We expect to see you at the 18th IPF which can be attended and participitated from your hospital, home or wherever you are.
We wish you, your family and all urology society good health and a bright future.
M.Derya Balbay, M.D.
