Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is with great delight we welcome you to the LMCE 2020 (Laboratory Medicine Congress & Exhibition) & KSLM 61st Annual Meeting to be held at Songdo Convensia in Incheon, Korea from September 23 to 25, 2020.

The year 2020 is made more special with LMCE now in its fifth year and the Korean Society for Laboratory Medicine (KSLM) also celebrating its 40th anniversary. KSLM has created clinical laboratories that have been globally recognized under the leadership of specialists in laboratory medicine, and LMCE has become an annual Asian congress and exhibition where about 2,000 representatives of 36 countries participate. Despite their short history, both society and congress have exponentially grown, and for that, we are grateful to all of you.

With the theme “Convergence-Oriented Laboratory Medicine,” LMCE 2020 would feature diverse academic programs, including plenary and keynote speeches. In addition, we expect LMCE’s largest ever exhibition to be held at Exhibition Hall 1 of Songdo Convensia.

Our congress location is an important transport hub of Korea, where Incheon International Airport and Port of Incheon are found. It is the frequent filming site of Korean Wave TV series, and it provides good transportation services and sites to enjoy. This is why we invite you to be in LMCE 2020—a venue for rich academic exchange with experts in various medical fields, set in the heart of Korea, where you can hopefully enjoy some healing time away from your busy daily lives.

We look forward to seeing you in Incheon!


  • Gye Cheol Kwon, M.D., Ph.D. Chairman, Organizing Committee of LMCE 2020
