Welcome to the first edition of Pelviperineology for 2009

March 2009 marks an important step in the development of this journal. We are pleased to announce a significant expansion of our editorial board with new contributors from the various specialties, reflecting our multidisciplinary nature. With our new editorial board the journal will have the resources to have regular contributions in the fields of Imaging, Anatomy, the Integral Theory as well as existing features of the European Perineology Group and the Pelvic Floor Digest.

The Journal now begins the next phase of our development striving to achieve Medline listing and start to develop an impact factor. Our new board is committed to developing the Journal as the preeminent multidisciplinary journal in the world. We are looking for people who wish to make a commitment to this process and willing to help us by submitting quality articles for publication, helping to review articles and generally make their colleagues aware of what the journal has to offer.

This year the AAVIS International Pelviperineology Congress will be held in Noosa on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland in conjunction with the International Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Society and the International Collaboration of the Pelvic Floor. This year the Urological Society and the Colorectal Society of Australasia have also been invited to participate. We are anticipating a good representation of all three pelvic floor specialties. There will be a special emphasis on colorectal dysfunction and treatment of posterior compartment defects. The multidisciplinary faculty and preliminary program can be reviewed by visiting the AAVIS Website at www.aavis.org
