Start date

Milan, Italy

The ESMO Sarcoma & GIST Symposium, 5-7 February 2018 was held once again in Milan, Italy.

ESMO’s Sarcoma & GIST Symposium is a niche meeting which attracts the most brilliant medical minds working on these disease types today. The Symposium is known as an excellent place for international networking and collaboration, featuring discussions with the key opinion leaders in these rare sub-entities.

The aim of the Symposium is to bring the translational researchers and clinicians together in an integrated approach for better patient outcome.

ESMO Preceptorship course

Prior to the Sarcoma & GIST Symposium, ESMO ran a one-day course, 5 February, led by an expert faculty, designed to provide young oncologists with a brief outline of both STS & GIST. This course may have been a first contact with these diseases for oncologists interested in knowing more and who needed an introduction prior to attending the higher-level conference in the two days that followed.

ESMO Advanced Sarcoma course

Also prior to the Sarcoma & GIST Symposium, ESMO ran an Advanced Sarcoma Course. This is a one-day event offered an intensive discussion of a set of clinical cases of STS & GIST for professionals who are already familiar with these diseases. Attendees benefited from discussions about challenging clinical cases with specialists from both the EU and U.S.A., leveraging the different perspectives and expertise across continents. This course was an ideal preparation for clinicians joining the Sarcoma & GIST Symposium.
