Dear all,

On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my great pleasure to announce the first World Conference on Pharmacometrics (WCoP) to be held in Seoul, Korea, 5-7 September, 2012.

With the rapid progress of pharmacometrics and increasing interest in regional meetings such as PAGE, there has been on-going discussion about holding a global pharmacometrics meeting to accommodate the growing needs world-wide. Meanwhile, the establishment of ACoP has brought a great success with continued dramatic increases in the number of attendants.

Encouraged and motivated by these discussion and success, the WCoP has been created (i) to give a local stimulus by holding it outside Europe and the US as well, thereby enhancing global development & networking opportunities in pharmacometrics and (ii) to provide opportunities of discussing the future of pharmacometrics from a strategic perspective. WCoP will be held every 4 years. It will not replace the existing meetings (e.g., PAGE, ACoP, PAGANZ, etc) which will continue to be scheduled in the same year.

Considering 60% of world population living in Asia, it is meaningful that the first WCoP will be held in Asia. It is hoped that WCoP 2012 will contribute to increasing Asian countries¡¯ interest in pharmacometrics as well as discussing future directions of the pharmacometrics in the world.

Seoul, the conference venue, has been very active in hosting international PKPD symposia in recent years. As the capital city for more than 600 years since the Chosun Dynasty, the last dynasty of Korea, it will present you a cultural experience with a mixture of old tradition and hi-technology during the stay.

Thank you in advance for your participation and support.
