Dear APLAR Colleague,

It is with great pleasure that I invite you to Chennai, Tamilnadu, India the gateway of South India from 6th September – 9th September 2015 for the 17th APLAR Congress.

A well-organised scientific committee team under the leadership of Prof Rohini Handa has already laid out the scientific programme on the anvil and is taking shape. Key opinion leaders, individuals and groups of people who have made a mark in the field of rheumatology will be participating to make it a feast for the academically oriented.

This Congress also rolls out a red carpet and ensures a platform for those young in the world of rheumatology and allied sciences to contribute to the advancement of Science.

Last but not the least a grand welcome with the personal touch of the great Indian hospitality awaits each and every one of you.

Please make it to Chennai, India for the APLAR 2015 and also have a glimpse of the incredible India.
