Saudi Arabia

The SAS has conducted symposia/conference on a two year basis since 1989 to date, and we hope to continue the same and also lift the standard of the symposium to be one of the best in the Middle East and also in the international arena. The support and encouragement of our colleagues from the entire Kingdom is a prerequisite to reach higher goals.
