    ABSTRACT: Preface: We owe the success of the 2nd JUA/AUA joint Meeting at the 102nd Annual Meeting of the American Urological Association (19–24 May 2007, Anaheim, California, USA) entirely to the warm support of all the people concerned, including the moderators and panelists of both countries. Joint programs have been held by the societies of France and Latin America in recent years and China started holding the ‘World China’ last year. It has not been easy to maintain the joint meeting because of constraints in planning, financial support and the workforce, and therefore some societies have been unable to hold their meetings continuously. Nevertheless, there are long-term plans to hold the meeting with the cooperation of both AUA and JUA sharing the moderators and panelists. Fortunately, since CME Credit was adopted for our meeting, the AUA members who participated in our meeting were given credits. It is now time to consider the accreditation for the JUA members too. We would like to thank Professor Robert C Flanigan, the Secretary General of AUA, Professor Glenn M Preminger, the Chairman of AUA Office of Education and the staff of AUA and JUA for introduction CME. The meeting was a great success with more than 200 participants from both countries. We hope to keep holding the joint meeting and have plenty of ideas on themes and forms. We believe that this international program helps to establish a closer relationship between JUA and AUA in the scientific field. Luckily, the abstract of this program is arranged not only as a monograph but as part of this issue of the International Journal of Urology. I believe this is an excellent opportunity for us to promote our meeting to a broader audience. Akihiko Okuyamamd, President of JUA Hideyuki Akazamd, Chairman of the International Committee of JUA
