Invitation to Shanghai
Yanqun Na
President, Chinese Urological Association
Yinghao Sun
Chairman, Local Organizing Committee
Dear international colleagues,
Dear colleagues and guests,
It is my pleasure, as President of the Chinese Urological Association, to
invite you to Shanghai for the 30th Congress of the Société Internationale
d’Urologie. This event will provide an excellent forum for Chinese urologists
to interact with their international counterparts, and vice-versa.
I am honoured to have been given the task of chairing the Local Organizing
Committee, as the SIU makes history with its first visit to China. We are
looking forward to gathering for a remarkable four days of scientific
updates, urological learning, professional networking, and cultural discovery.
Urologists in our country will benefit immensely from the presence of the
SIU, an organization to which we hope to contribute in significant ways in
the coming years.
Last year, China opened its doors to the international community for
the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, This year, we are honoured to welcome
urologists from around the world to experience and enjoy Chinese culture
and hospitality. Shanghai has much to offer guests, with its distinctive
architecture, fascinating history and stimulating modern-day culture.
Please be sure to take the time to visit as much of China as you can
while you are travelling in this exciting area of the world.
The scientific programme assembled by Dr. Williams and Prof. Ye--along
with the social activities coordinated by Prof. Sun–will no doubt constitute
a very fruitful meeting. Over the scheduled 4.5 days, we will hear the latest
research and updates in technology available in urology today, as well as
present our own breakthroughs and innovations. It is very important that,
as healthcare providers, we strive to learn from each other and continue to
work to improve the urological care of our patients, worldwide. This
meeting is the perfect venue for doing so.
I hope to see you in Shanghai.
As Shanghai continues to evolve into one of the most exciting cities in the
world, the timing is just right for an SIU congress. Our convention centre
offers all the infrastructures to meet international requirements, our local
arrangements partners are well accustomed to facilitating events of this
scope, and the city of Shanghai is no stranger to hosting professional
meetings. I am grateful to Dr. Williams, Prof. Ye and their scientific
committee for assembling a programme that is sure to interest urologists
from around the world. We also look forward to learning about state-ofthe-art urologic oncology in Asia and the developing world from the faculty
joining Dr. Klotz in the 4th World Urologic Oncology Conference. As well,
we are very fortunate to benefit from the ICUD Consultation on testis
cancer. I hope that everyone who attends the SIU Congress will take the
time to visit not only Shanghai, but also the many other fascinating
destinations in China that will make this a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
I look forward to meeting you all in Shanghai.

Invitation from the Scientific Committee
Richard D. Williams
Co-Chair, SIU 2009 Scientific Committee
Zhang-Qun Ye
Co-Chair, SIU 2009 Scientific Committee
Dear friends and colleagues,
As Scientific Committee co-chairs, it is our pleasure to invite you to what is sure to be one
of the Société Internationale d’Urologie’s most memorable congresses. This is the first time
that the SIU has travelled to China, and the Scientific Committee, in conjunction with our
colleagues on the Local Organizing Committee, has been hard at work for many months
to create an impressive meeting for our members and colleagues. Shanghai is known for
being forward-looking and innovative, and we hope that our programme will reflect these
same qualities.
This year’s programme will feature many urological topics, from andrology to infertility, from
oncology to stones, from pediatric urology to minimally invasive techniques, from urinary
incontinence to transplantation. And to present this ambitious programme, we are fortunate
enough to count on the participation of international experts who will travel great distances
to share their knowledge. These global contributions are what make the SIU one of the most
important platforms for urological education.
The ICUD Consultation on testis cancer, led by Dr. Jerome Richie, will be held in conjunction
with the congress. We can look forward to hearing the world’s experts discuss the issues
surrounding the management of this malignancy, and formulate recommendations that will
be published subsequently and constitute an important reference for this disease.
In addition, we will also welcome the 4th Conference of the World Urological Oncology
Federation, titled Urologic Cancer in Asia and the Developing World, to be held just prior
to our meeting, on October 31 and November 1. WUOF chairman Dr. Laurence Klotz is
assembling a provocative programme that will provide many opportunities for participants
to interact with guest speakers.
Once again, are pleased to have received an impressive number of first-rate abstracts,
and we remind those of you who have not yet submitted, to do so before the deadline
of April 15, 2009.
We hope that you are as excited as we are by the rich programme that is in store for you in
Shanghai. But we would be remiss in omitting to mention the dazzling social programme that
is being coordinated by the Chair of the Local Organizing Committee, Professor Yinghao Sun.
With both the educational and social components falling into place, this congress is shaping
up to be an event that cannot be missed.
Abstract Submission Deadline: April 15, 2009, midnight Eastern Daylight Time,

Begin the congress by celebrating the accomplishments of the Société Internationale
d’Urologie and looking toward the future. The one-hour ceremony will incorporate local
entertainment and words of welcome from SIU dignitaries and our hosts.
A free evening on Tuesday night gives you the
opportunity to explore Shanghai on your own or
experience one of the once-in-a-lifetime activities
described below. Prices for activities include entrance
fees, dinner (option 2 only), air-conditioned coach,
English-speaking guide and all other associated fees.
Transportation will be provided to and from the SICC
to the venues.
Welcome Reception

1900-2100
1830-2200
Exhibit Hall, Shanghai International Convention Centre

Monday, November 2
SIU Night 2009
1900-2200
Ballroom, Grand Hyatt
Included in registration fees for delegates and registered accompanying persons.
Additional tickets: US $100 per person.
This evening will further showcase the culture and history of China. Mingle and take in
the elegant décor and ambiance provided by the world-class entertainment. Separate food
stations and bars will allow you to try some of the many different specialties of China as
you interact with urologists from all over the world.
Depart from the SICC and arrive at the show where you
will be delighted with the multi-million dollar acrobatic
extravaganza known as ERA. ERA is a multimedia
odyssey whose inspiration is a combination of Chinese
acrobatic arts and modern technology. Just like
Shanghai, ERA evolves through a constant collision
between past and future. Language and cultural
barriers do not exist with ERA, a simple gesture
conveys a thousand emotions, a thousand words.
Option 2: Huangpu River Cruise
1800-2130
Cost per person: US $82
Guests will enjoy an authentic Chinese dinner before
embarking on a one-of-a-kind adventure.
The Huangpu River Cruise is one of the best ways to
see both old and new Shanghai. As you sail down the
river toward the East Sea, you can enjoy the sweeping
views of the Bund and the 21st-century cityscape of
Pudong. You will also have the chance to see the
futuristic Yangpu Bridge up close, a stark contrast to
the everyday river traffic of barges and ferries. A night
cruise provides one of the most dramatic views of
Shanghai, and is an opportunity not to be missed.

Social Programme
Option 3: “Sky is the Limit” Visit to Shanghai World Financial Centre and Xin Tian Di
1900-2130
Cost per person: US $36
For this option, you will visit the World Financial Centre, an icon of modern-day Shanghai.
An observatory is situated at the top of the building, at an astounding 474 m; however, before
you even reach the top, you will experience a exciting elevator ride that makes its ascent in
a mere 66 seconds, accompanied by a light and music show. Once you’ve recovered from
this surreal experience, slow down with a stroll through Xin Tian Di district, an area known
for its nightlife Xin Tian Di district is also known for its unique construction, combining
Shikumen-style architecture on the exterior with a totally modern interior, filled with
international galleries, bars and theme restaurants as well as upscale boutiques. When you
walk through Xin Tian Di, you have the opportunity to experience both the Shanghai of the
1920s and the casual elegance of modern Shanghai. Xi Tian Di truly is where “yesterday
meets tomorrow in Shanghai today.”
Wednesday, November 4

French Concession Tour
Classic Shanghai Tour
0900-1230
Included in Accompanying Persons’ registration
Additional tickets can be purchased for US $35 per person.
Choose one day (only) for city tour on registration form.
This tour will take you to the Jade Buddha Temple, Yu Garden and Old Town. The Jade Buddha
Temple, named for its two exquisite milk-white jade Buddha statues brought back from Burma
in the 19th century, is a relatively new addition to Shanghai. Built in 1911, this multi-level
temple with its various courtyards is still in active use by dozens of monks. Next on the
schedule is Yu Garden. The garden lies at the heart of the old town and, according to legend,
was built in the 16th century by the eccentric and gifted landscape architect, Zhang Nanyang.
Inside you will find artificial hills, carp-filled ponds, dragon-lined walls and pavilions connected
by zigzagging bridges. After relaxing in the garden, you will have time to shop in the adjoining
market, filled with Chinese-style architecture complete with traditional red walls and upturned
tile roofs. The final stop on the tour will be a visit to the Old Town. Prior to 1911, the Shanghai
Old Town was a walled city inhabited mainly by fishermen, but the walls of the city were torn
down to allow freer movement and to ease trade. The Town is an intricate maze of shops
selling almost every kind of souvenir imaginable.
0930-1230
Cost per person: US $26
Experience Old Shanghai like it was in its heyday. The tree-lined avenues and
many Art Deco mansions of the French Concession will show you why this area of
Shanghai is called the “Paris of the East.” The tour will include a guided visit to
Shanghai Arts & Crafts Research Institute and the historic residence of Madam
Soong, former first lady of China and wife of Dr. Sun Yat Sen. Constructed in 1905,
the Shanghai Arts & Crafts Research Institute was built in the French Belle Époque
style. Both the architecture and beautifully-maintained grounds will amaze
visitors. Inside, you will find 19 different areas to tour, including displays of
needlepoint, tapestries, ivory and jade carvings, and porcelain. Next, you will visit
Madam Soong’s residence–yet another dramatic display of European-influenced
architecture, with a boat-shaped 4,300 m2 house built in the German style. Inside,
visitors can see the many relics of Soong Ching Ling. These items act as a sort of
biography, painting a picture of her revolutionary ideas and activities.
Shanghai Chic – Tai Kang Art Street
and Dongtai Curio Alley
1400-1730
Cost per person: US $23
Shanghai is China’s trendiest city. The mixture of cultural backgrounds and the
atmosphere of openness and acceptance fuelled an explosion in the arts, leading
to many galleries and designer boutiques popping up throughout the city. One
such area is Tai Kang Art Street, initially slated to be Shanghai’s official “art
street” back in 1998. Tai Kang Road has gradually become a charming amalgam
of renovated warehouses and lanes, design studios, art galleries, and fashion
outlets. More market-like is the Dongtai Curio Alley. If you’re looking for variety,
this is the place for you! There are more than 125 small shops selling a mindboggling variety of items, including bronze wares, jade pieces, calligraphy,
paintings and bamboo carvings. The Alley remains one of the most popular
markets for expats and locals alike. Remember, not all of the items are genuine
antiques, but the fun of the market is in seeing all the interesting items and
haggling for the best price.

Accompanying Persons’ Programme
Chinese Venice – Excursion to Suzhou
0830-1730
Please note that this tour is
not available on Tuesday,
November 3.
Cost per person: US $83
The Floating Village – Excursion to Zhujiajiao
1330-1730
Cost per person: US $39
Only one short hour away from the bustling crowds of Shanghai lies Zhujiajiao, a reminder
of Shanghai’s history and past way of life. Several rivers criss-cross the town and thousands of
ancient buildings stand on the banks of the rivers, with beautiful bridges–the trademark of
Zhujiajiao–spanning the watery streets. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes as you
tour through the water village. The tour starts at Fangshen Bridge, which provides a bird’s eye
view of the village. From there, stroll along North Street, where you will have the opportunity
to purchase various local products. The excursion will conclude with a boat tour through the
village. Similar to a gondola, the boats in Zhujiajiao are man-powered, and a truly
unforgettable experience.
Known as “the capital of
Silk”, Suzhou is definitely
a remarkable destination.
A two-hour drive from
Shanghai, Suzhou is an
ancient city that was once
the capital of the Kingdom
of Wu, from the 12th to
4th Century, BC. More
recently, it has been a
centre of the silk trade
and a paradise of gardens
and canals.
Just as in the past, Suzhou
is still a haven for scholars,
artists and skilled
craftsmen–a perfect
place to gain inspiration.
The tour will begin with
a visit to the acclaimed
Garden of the Humble
Administrator and then
stop at a local silk
spinning factory where
you will view the entire silk production process, from silkworm raising to rewinding and
packing. The final stop on the tour is a visit to Pan Gate, a renowned structure that is a
combined water and land gate. Lunch is included.

Seven centuries ago, Marco Polo pronounced
Hangzhou “the finest, most splendid city in the
world, where so many pleasures may be found
that one fancies oneself to be in Paradise.”
Today, the region is still considered a breathtaking
vacation spot. Take the 1-hour express train to
Hangzhou and experience a cruise on West Lake
as well as a visit to the Dragonwell Tea Plantation.
West Lake is divided into five distinct sections.
The largest part is known as the Outer Lake, and
is bounded by the North Inner Lake, Yuehu Lake,
West Inner Lake and Lesser South Lake. Held in
the embrace of hilly peaks on three sides, this water wonderland has been an attraction for
centuries. Next, the Longjing tea plantation area will provide a nice break from your lake
adventure. Hidden in the southwest corner of the lake are some secluded walks and the
village of Longjing itself. Longjing actually means “Dragon Well” and, according to legend,
the fresh spring water of the region was discovered in 230 AD. Dragonwell is considered
to be the best green tea in China.

During the Tang Dynasty (618-907), Xi’an was the
largest city in the world, linking Asia to Europe
via the Silk Road. Uncovered in 1974 by peasants
digging a well, the terra cotta warriors are Xi’an’s
greatest attraction. Guests will board the early
2.5 hour flight to Xi’an and head toward the Terra
Cotta Warriors Museum. Visitors will be stunned by
the formidable army of the Ancient Emperor Qin Shi
Huangdi. During his reign, he ordered military
expansion into the far corners of the known world.
The estimated 8,000 terra cotta soldiers are a
testament to his power and megalomania.
Each figure is 5’10” tall, and each head has been
individually modeled with a unique facial expression.
Seven miles from Xi’an lies the Neolithic settlement
of Banpo (6080-5600 BC), discovered in 1953. The
museum here is remarkable for its painted pottery,
ceramic, weapons and even infant burial jars from
the Yangshao culture. A guided tour will conclude
with lunch at the museum restaurant, and a late
afternoon flight will then bring you back to Shanghai.

Beijing boasts an abundance of historical relics and cultural
heritage. Take a two-hour early morning flight to Beijing and
during your first day experience the imperial magnificence of
Tiananmen Square in the morning, and the Forbidden City
that afternoon. Tiananmen Square is the largest public square
in the world and beyond the north side of the square lies the
Forbidden City (Imperial Palace). The Forbidden City was
home to more than 24 emperors, beginning with its creation
by Emperor Yongle in 1420. The walls are more than 30 feet
high and are surrounded by a 160-foot moat. The Palace was
strictly off-limits to Chinese commoners and is today
probably one of the best-preserved sites of classical Chinese
architecture. After this full day of sightseeing, travellers will
relax and unwind with an authentic Peking Duck dinner.
Day two is a full-day Great Wall of China excursion. One of
the wonders of the world, the Great Wall is an early
testament of the human power to build in the harshest of
terrains. The first sections were built as early as the 5th
century BC, but it was in 221 BC that the various parts of the
wall were connected. On this trip, you will visit the Badaling
pass, located about 40 miles from Beijing–a great way to end
your trip to China.
二十一
hanghai,
with a population of over 18 million, is a
booming megalopolis and one of the world’s
ten most populous cities. Located on the
Huangpu River, imaginative architecture dominates the
skyline and tells a story of an ever-changing, ever-evolving
city, a city constantly pushing its way forward into the
future while remaining a beacon of Chinese identity.
Visitors here benefit from the endless opportunities to
experience world-famous cuisine, shopping and cultural
enrichment in a completely unique way.
If you were to travel back to the 6th century, you might be surprised to see
the vast marshland dotted with small fishing villages that stood on the site of
present-day Shanghai. It was not until the late 13th century during the Song
Dynasty that Shanghai began to evolve from a commercial village to a major
economic centre of the region. A wall built in 1553 to keep out troublesome
pirates clearly defined the boundaries of the city.
Today, the cosmopolitan feel of Shanghai is once again on the rise. Foreigners
looking for investments, haute cuisine, and spectacular architecture all make
their way to Shanghai. The iconic Oriental Pearl Tower symbolizes the ambition
and imagination of this trend-forward and cutting-edge metropolis. In Shanghai,
it is possible to see some of the finest museums (Shanghai Museum), listen to
some of the finest music (Huju), and eat some of the finest foods at the most
elegant restaurants (M on the Bund). Sensory overload has never been as
enjoyable as it is in Shanghai!
Whether you are drawn to the trendy Bund area, the chic charm of the French
Concession, the culturally-rich and fascinating Renmin Square area, the historic
Old Town district, the serene and stylish Jingan and West Nanjing Road, the
breathtaking architectural scenery of Pudong, or the tranquility of Hangzhou,
Suzhou and the Canal Towns, all must be experienced to be believed and the
need for an extended stay in Shanghai is almost certain.

With evidence of Chinese civilization dating back
up to 6,000 years ago, China is the birthplace of one
of the world’s oldest societies. Dynastic rule began in
2100 BCE with the Xia Dynasty, and over the last 4,000 years,
China has continued to carve out its place in history.
With a past so complex and detailed, it is nearly impossible to summarize the impact that
China has had on the modern world. However, it is worth mentioning the “Four Great
Inventions of Ancient China”: paper, the compass, gunpowder and printing. While these are
considered the “great” four, there are countless other innovations in technology over
thousands of years that have deeply influenced the way in which society functions today.
In addition to this ingenuity, the Chinese are also known for their beautiful artistic creations–
jade jewelry, silk garments and various forms of pottery are valued commodities worldwide.
No matter where you are from, China offers a never-ending to-do list. While it’s a difficult
task to see everything, make sure you take some time to visit these tourist hot-spots.
The Great Wall of China – Built over a period of thousands of years, the world’s most famous
wall seems never-ending, needing to be almost constantly re-built and repaired by many
people with a variety of materials. Designated in 1987 as a UNESCO Heritage Site, its scale
is undoubtedly grand, although a debate of whether or not the wall is visible from space still
continues. Some of the best spots to visit are the Juyongguan Pass and Jinshanling in the
municipality of Beijing, and the Shanhaiguan Pass in Hebei province.
Beijing – The capital of the People’s Republic of China, this metropolis recently hosted the
2008 Summer Olympics, an event that placed them squarely in the international spotlight,
a position in which the city seems to thrive. Ancient temples, elaborate palaces and peaceful
pagodas are everywhere, and the world-famous Forbidden City is a must-see for any visitor.
Words cannot capture the mystique of this city; it must be experienced for yourself.
Hong Kong – Officially known as the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Hong Kong
is abuzz with economic and cultural activity. Similarly to Shanghai, Hong Kong is a mecca for
architectural enthusiasts, with breathtaking skyscrapers dominating the skyline and
inventive designs around every corner. Hong Kong might just be the most cosmopolitan city
on earth, offering something for everyone, no matter your background, culture or nationality.

Extract from the SIU Bylaws concerning application for membership including changes
approved on September 5, 2007 at the Centennial World Congress in Paris.
Article 01 – A
ctive, Associate and
Affiliated Members
Active members must be qualified urologists.
The status of qualified urologist must be certified:
• by a national accrediting body in the country
of the candidate or
• by the recognized national urological society
in the country of the candidate, or
• in the absence of the above, by a foreign accrediting
body recognized by the Board of Chairmen, or
• in special circumstances by the Board
of Chairmen itself.
Application for membership requires sponsorship by two
Active Members of the Society in good standing, and must
be supported by a National Section as communicated by
its National Delegate. The National Delegate can be one of
the sponsors.
Where a request for new membership would require the
establishment of a new National Section with less than five
Active Members, such new members shall be considered to
be Active Members-at-large. Their candidacy must be
endorsed by two Active SIU members in good standing from
existing National Sections and must be supported by the
BOC until such time as their country has sufficient members
in good standing for the creation of its own National Section.
Urologists or surgeons practicing urology but not considered
qualified as per the above definition may be proposed for
election as Associate Members.
Physicians or health professionals engaged in affiliated
branches of medicine may also be proposed for election as
Affiliated Members at the discretion of the Board of
Chairmen.
The status of Active, Associate or Affiliated Member can only
be conferred by vote at the General Assembly. Proposals for
membership must be received at least two months before
the General Assembly in which they are
to be considered for election.
Article 02 – Senior Members
Active Members can request a transfer to Senior Member
status when they reach 65 years of age on January 1st of the
year of the request. Senior Members are not required to pay
annual dues unless they wish to receive a subscription to the
Society’s Journal. They cannot be expelled because
of non-attendance.
Article 03 – Candidate Members
Candidate Members are those whose applications have
been approved by their National Section but whose Member
status has not yet been confirmed by the General Assembly.
They are not required to pay annual dues unless they wish to
receive a subscription to the Society’s Journal or to benefit
from reduced registration fees at the Congress. Applications
for Candidate Membership must be received at least two
months before the General Assembly in which they are to
be considered for election.
