ESMO Asia 2015: Welcome from the Committee Chairs

Today, more than ever, oncology demands a multidisciplinary approach. At the ESMO Asia Congress you can expect practical seminars and wide-ranging debates which answer the question about how oncologists from different areas of specialisation can best work together to achieve even greater treatment results for cancer patients. ESMO Asia will serve to bridge the gap between Asian oncologists and their European counterparts, leveraging the multicultural and professional diversity inherent to both Asia and Europe. This Congress is a unique opportunity to promote the international exchange of expertise.

ESMO has a long-standing track record of offering excellent educational programmes; and the Asia Congress programme will comprise both scientific and educational tracks prepared by a scientific committee of experts in their respective fields. The programme is comprehensive, with a strong emphasis on state of the art science and the current standard of care, and encompasses all tumour types, offering sessions of interest to both researchers and clinicians. There will be innovative keynote lectures, educational sessions, multidisciplinary tumour board discussions, the latest ESMO Clinical Practice Guidelines sessions, and an overview of the best of 2015 from other international oncology conferences.

ESMO Asia will provide numerous opportunities for researchers at all career stages, research phases, and areas of expertise. There is no fee associated with submitting an abstract. Choosing ESMO to disseminate your research offers you global visibility and your study will be published in ESMO’s Scientific Journal, Annals of Oncology and the webcast available in ESMO’s online educational portal, OncologyPRO.  ESMO has cultivated relationships with international media outlets meaning important studies may be picked up by the media and resonate well beyond the Congress. We invite you to submit your abstract to ESMO and join us in Singapore!

The ESMO Congress is an important appointment for all oncology professionals giving us the ideal opportunity to come together and exchange knowledge.

We look forward to reviewing your research and meeting you in Singapore.
