Greeting From Chairman of Indonesian Association of Sexology
Warmest regards for all colleagues,
Time has come again for us to offer a regular national scientific meeting in Sexology. This time we present the 5th National Congress Indonesian Association of Sexology (ASI) in collaborationwith the Asia Pacific Society of Sexual Medicine (APSSM) and supported by the Indonesian Association of Andrologist (Persandi). This event will be held in Jakarta. October 5th-7th, 2018.
In this event many experts will be coming and sharing their knowledge and experiences in various aspects of Sexology. They are coming from intern Indonesia and some Asian countries. Many topics will be presented into some sessions of Symposium and Workshop. These include various topics of medical and psychosocial aspects in Sexology. Some topics in Anti-Aging Medicine related to Sexology will also be presented for you.
In this millennial era, many more information about sex is open widely to public without border. Any time in any place all people can connect and get information about sexuality, no matter it is right or wrong. Perception about sex is totally changed. Therefore, many more sexual incidences happen in our society with all consequences. As professionals we have to aware to this condition. We have to do something to educate, to prevent, and to treat people from their sexual misinformation, sexual disorder, sexual harassment, and all other violation of sexual rights. In the country like Indonesia, where formal information about sexuality is considered as a big mistake, the role of professionals like us is needed. Unfortunately, there are some doctors and other professionals have given some fault information about sexuality in media. How does it happen? The easy answer is they never got formal education about Sexology. They only get information from news papers, Google search, and advertisements.
We cordially invite you all who are interested in Sexology to join this glorious event. However, we are happy if you involve more in this event, not just only as participants. Therefore, we also give a chance to colleagues who are interested to write and present a free paper. Please send your paper to present in the free paper schedule. All free papers will be selected and scored to win the best three papers. The three winners will get ASI Award, a prestigious award in Sexology.
We are waiting for your participation in this event.
See you soon in Jakarta.
