Kyoto – Japan

18th International Congress of ICCMO


Message from the President

image-japanese-presidentThe next biennial convocation of ICCMO will be held in April 2015 in Kyoto, Japan. As President of the Japanese section of ICCMO that will host the 18th International College of ICCMO 2015, I would like to extend my cordial greetings and best wishes for the good health and continued success of ICCMO members throughout the world.

Next year’s 18th ICCMO will be held at the Grand Prince Hotel Kyoto, which is adjacent to the International Conference Center. As you know, Mt. Fuji in Japan was registered as a World Heritage site last year, and the host of Kyoto was chosen in 2014 as the World’s Best City by the U.S. magazine Travel and Leisure. Kyoto was also ranked second just 5 years ago by the UK travel magazine Wanderlust. Japan won the national city ranking in the same year.

Cherry blossoms are in full bloom in Kyoto around April, when the congress will be held. Please don’t forget to make time to visit the world’s best tourist spots in Kyoto and in the neighbouring, ancient capital of Nara before and after the congress.

There is a saying that the mouth is the gateway to a healthy life. Please join us in learning more at the 18th International College of ICCMO – the only academic society focused on healthy occlusion, which is directly related to health and life expectancy.

I am looking forward to seeing you in Kyoto next spring.

Atsushi Yamashita, DDS, PhD, MICCMO
