We would like to welcome you to the 21st Gwangju International Interventional Cardiology Symposium (GICS 2023) in Gwangju, a metropolitan city rich in cultural heritage and the economic and educational hub of the southwestern part of South Korea.

This year it will be a hybrid conference that brings together the best components of virtual and in-person events. This three-day scientific journey will offer thought-provoking talks on the most recent advances and issues of the field from basic and translational science to clinical investigation, together with lively discussions among leading experts from home and abroad. The symposium will also feature live case demonstrations, oral presentations, posters, and educational sessions for health professionals and local residents.

We hope that the gathering will provide opportunities to share and exchange new experiences, facilitate the making of new acquaintances, and strengthen personal friendships among scientists from different parts of the world.

We wish to have the privilege of meeting you all this coming June here in Gwangju, South Korea.

Thank you very much, and best wishes
