2014 Annual Meeting



November 5-8, 2014

We are trading one beach for another in 2014! As will hopefully become a longstanding tradition with our colleagues in the Japan Pancreas Society, we will be again partnering to host a joint 45th Anniversary meeting.For those of you who attended the first such event in 2009, I hope you will agree that it was a wonderful, robust meeting and provided a great chance to get a truly international perspective on the research and treatment of pancreatic diseases.

In 2014, we will be headed to the Big Island of Hawaii and staying at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. As always, our program will be jam-packed, so we definitely encourage you to come early or stay late to take advantage of all the resort has to offer. We know travel prices are a concern, especially with Hawaii, but we have negotiated even better rates than in Miami. Rooms will start at $165/night for a terrace view and the top price is $220/night for a beautiful ocean view room.

The program committee is in the process of meeting and a tentative program will be available in late spring. Information about abstract submission and hotel booking will be available in April.  Keep checking the APA website for more details! As always, if you have any feedback or suggestions for the meeting, please do not hesitate to contact us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Abstract Deadline: June 23, 2014
Early registration deadline: October 6, 2014
