With great pleasure I wish to thank all those responsible for planning the 2021 Asian Conference on Pharmacoepidemiology (ACPE). It is particularly pleasing that we are joined this year by the Korean Society for Pharmacoepidemiology and Risk Management (KoPERM), as we collaborate to develop an exciting hybrid-learning scientific program.

ACPE has been an official ISPE meeting for several years and this thirteenth scientific meeting makes essential contributions to ISPE's global mission to the development of policy, education, and advocacy for the field of pharmacoepidemiology. With membership of over 2100 in 75 countries and growing, ISPE's commitment to the free exchange of scientific information reaches leaders in the pharmaceutical industry, academic institutions, government agencies, non-profit and for-profit private organizations. We invite you to join us by becoming a member.

On behalf of the ISPE Board, I wish the meeting much success in advancing the science of pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacovigilance.


On behalf of the local organizing committee of ACPE 2021 and the Korean Society for Pharmacoepidemiology and Risk Management (KoPERM), we are delighted to invite you to attend the ISPE's 13th Asian Conference on Pharmacoepidemiology (ACPE 2021) and 28th Conference of KoPERM (KoPERM 28), which will be jointly held at COEX, Seoul, South Korea, on October 13th - 15th, 2021.

The scientific program of ACPE 2021 will be developed under the emerging issues associated with the clinical and research field of pharmacovigilance. You will have an opportunity to learn and exchange not only outstanding academic insights but also professional contacts with your colleagues.

We are very pleased to have you join us and look forward to seeing you at ACPE 2021.

Thank you.
