Serial specific speeches will focus on the topics about the basic knowledge of medical AI, current status and application of AI on the field of Surgery, Gastroenterology, and Oncology (SGO), the impact of AI on clinical practice, and provide the environment for speakers and all attendees to discuss how we (surgeons, gastroenterologists, and oncologists) can do to mix the spirit of humanity into medical diagnosis, decision making, and treatment for patients in the brand new era of AI.

Except the main theme of artificial intelligence, we also provided special sessions of most updated immunotherapy, interventional therapy (proton, radiotherapy, RFA, PRRT, etc.), nutrition management, and early rehabilitation program for the treatment of patients with abdominal malignancy. Furthermore, we invited well-known international experts to share their experiences, researches, and national data-base profiles on the topics of UGI-, HBP-, LGI-, Endocrine- cancers, and sarcoma.

To make the opportunity for every attendee to realize the whole scope of integrated oncologic medical care, we also cooperated with societies of internal medicine and nurses to provide novel experiences on the care of common situations on oncologic patients such as hepatitis, exocrine-insufficiency, and endocrine (hyperlipidemia & DM) management, oncologic nurse care.
