From KAPO: Letter to Colleagues
Such a development could be evidently induced by close communication between the concerned researchers in the academic associations, especially like Paleopathology Association or many academic meeting of physical anthropologists. However, in case of East Asian countries, there has been very few opportunity for anthropologists, archaeologists, and forensic scientists to discuss about pathology of skeleton samples because the scientific association of the related subjects has been very rare. To overcome this, related researchers and specialists in Korea decided to make the first academic organization for paleopathology and orteoarchaeology in Korea. KAPO was officially launched on Oct 29, 2011. And the first academic KAPO meeting was held on Jan 14, 2012. The number of KAPO members is 72 (May, 2012). And 2-year term executive committee is organized. The annual meeting would be held two times a year (Jan, July). The next summer KAPO meeting is slated for July, 2012. Thank you for your future interest in KAPO.
