Dear colleagues, partners, friends,
Following the truly successful launch of the first edition of the SIOP Europe Annual Meeting, we are delighted to invite you to join us for the second edition of the SIOP Europe Annual Meeting – an innovative setting for Paediatric Oncology and Haematology.
The second SIOP Europe Annual Meeting is scheduled to take place on 4-8 May 2020 in Valencia, Spain.
The SIOP Europe Annual Meeting aims to bring together the diverse stakeholders who are invested in tackling key issues with the aim of increasing the cure rate for cancers affecting children and adolescents and improving the quality of life for survivors. To enhance collaboration between all stakeholders, especially with parents and survivors, we are very happy that this Annual Meeting will again be held in partnership with CCI Europe, who will be holding their 11th CCI Europe Conference. This ensures the representation and participation of childhood cancer parents and survivors and provides exceptional possibilities for collaboration across all stakeholders within the paediatric oncology community.
This unique meeting will provide a distinct opportunity for participants to share their knowledge, collaborate on cutting-edge research and debate the outcomes of the high quality clinical and basic research carried out in Europe, as well as provide mentoring and training for young doctors and fellows.
Also, more Joint Sessions are being planned for the second edition as well as Plenary Sessions with multi-stakeholder discussions on important cross-tumour topics and best practice.
In addition, please take note that this Annual Meeting will once again offer an exciting range of opportunities for networking and social events enabling lively interactions.
We are happy to inform you that the first edition of the Annual Meeting surpassed our expectations in terms of attendance with 1489 participants from 65 countries. The wide-ranging participants included scientists, clinicians, researchers, young experts, parents, patients, survivors, policymakers and healthcare professionals with diverse interests and expertise to promote the best possible care and outcomes for all children and adolescents with cancer in Europe.
Please save the date for the 2nd SIOP Europe Annual Meeting and further detailed information will be made available soon.
We look forward to seeing you in Valencia on 4-8 May 2020 for a memorable SIOP Europe Annual Meeting!
