European Lung Cancer Congress (ELCC) - PDF Version

15 - 18 April 2020, Geneva, Switzerland 

We invite you to save the date for the European Lung Cancer Congress (ELCC 2020), the point of reference in the field of thoracic malignancies.

Since the inaugural meeting in 2008, attendance has grown significantly and has established the congress’ premier status and highlighted the increasing interest in all that the congress has to offer to professionals in the field.

ELCC aims to advance science, disseminate education and improve the practice of lung cancer specialists worldwide.

The most important multidisciplinary societies that represent thoracic oncology specialists have collaborated to create the ELCC. The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO), the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC), the European SocieTy for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO), the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons (ESTS), and the European Thoracic Oncology Platform (ETOP) have partnered up to bring you the best congress yet.

The packed programme brings together specialists from across the globe who work together to improve care for lung cancer patients.

Medical and radiation oncologists, thoracic surgeons, respiratory physicians /pulmonologists, interventional radiologists and pathologists, and healthcare industry representatives will all benefit from the stimulating agenda.

The congress has multiple objectives that make it attractive to professionals working in the lung cancer discipline. These are: to advance the quality of lung cancer treatment by updating lung cancer and other thoracic oncology specialists on different multidisciplinary topics important for clinical practice; to discuss the increasing understanding of molecular biology and immunology of lung tumours and how that increased knowledge changes the diagnostic and treatment landscape; and to present the latest advances in translational and clinical research in different settings across lung and other thoracic malignancies.

ELCC 2020 promises to give a comprehensive and up-to-the-minute overview of all aspects of lung cancer research, diagnosis and treatment. Prepare to be inspired at this world-class event.
