This meeting will summarize the past half century and discuss the next half century of WFNMB.
On behalf of the Japanese Society of Nuclear Medicine (JSNM), I would like to cordially invite you to Kyoto, the host city of the 13th Congress of the World Federation of Nuclear Medicine and Biology to be held in 2022 (WFNMB 2022). The 1st WFNMB Congress was realized in Tokyo and Kyoto in 1974 and was a great success. We firmly believe that WFNMB 2022 will be an equally good opportunity to gather once again in Japan in order to summarize the accomplishments of the WFNMB during the past half century and discuss strategies for the future of the WFNMB as well as of nuclear medicine itself in the next half century. Kyoto was the city where the closing ceremony of the 1st Congress was conducted, making it fitting that it will become the opening door to a new era of WFNMB.
