BIG and ESMO regret to inform you that the IMPAKT 2016 Breast Cancer Conference, 12-14 May and the pre-IMPAKT Training Course, 11 May in Brussels, Belgium have been cancelled due to concerns about fully functioning transportation services in Brussels and serious security issues.
This was not an easy decision to make and we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.
BIG and ESMO remain committed to IMPAKT and confirm the conference will take place in 2017. We hope that we can count on your involvement in the future.
All individuals and groups already pre-registered for the event have already been contacted and any registration fees paid will be refunded.
What will happen to accepted abstracts. Will they still be published?
BIG and ESMO are well aware of the choice authors made by submitting abstracts to IMPAKT and we sincerely apologize for this inconvenient situation. Due to the cancellation of IMPAKT 2016, the Abstract Book Supplement of Annals of Oncology will also be cancelled. As a consequence of the IMPAKT 2016 Abstract Book not being published, we WILL release the abstracts back to the authors, providing an opportunity to submit these important studies to another conference.
ESMO is pleased to inform authors that there is still time to submit abstracts to ESMO 2016 in Copenhagen, submission deadline: 11 May 2016.
