3rd ESTRO Forum 2015 Barcelona

  • Conference Call
  • You are kindly invited to participate in the 3rd ESTRO Forum 2015, held on April 24 – 28, 2015 in Barcelona, Spain.

    The 3rd ESTRO Forum will provide a wonderful platform in which to explore innovations and the latest advances in radiation oncology. Five meetings, each offering an outstanding scientific programme, will be hosted in parallel under its umbrella:

    • Clinical and translational meeting
    • Biennial physics meeting
    • GEC-​ESTRO-​ISIORT meeting
    • RTT meeting
    • PREVENT and TARGET meetings

    Placing interdisciplinarity under the spotlight, clinicians, physicists, brachytherapists, radiobiologists and radiation therapists (RTTs) will also find, in addition to the five meetings, a broad range of interdisciplinary sessions in which they can participate to explore topics of interest to all.

    These interdisciplinary sessions include:

    • Tumour biology for treatment planning and response evaluation
    • Paediatrics
    • Elderly
    • Psycho-​social aspects of radiation therapy
    • Databases and data-​mining
    • Risk management
    • Stereotactic ablative radiotherapy
    • Re-​irradiation, including a session on hyperthermia
    • Particle therapy
    • Advanced technology assessment and health economics
    • Adaptive radiation therapy

    and will conclude with a joint discussion on the vision for the future of radiation oncology.

    The meeting will feature symposia, presidential and joint sessions, teaching lectures and debates. Educational activities will complete the programme with pre-​meeting courses, contouring workshops and multidisciplinary tumour board sessions.

    Submission information

    Abstracts must be submitted and presented at the conference in English. The Scientific Committee reserves the right to reject an abstract written in poor English. Research obviously not yet performed and results not yet obtained will be banned.

    Abstracts will be anonymised before review to ensure fairness and eliminate possible bias. Therefore it is strictly forbidden to include the authors’ names or institutions in the body of the abstracts. Submitted abstracts that include such references will be penalised by the Abstract Reviewing Committee.

    Abstracts submitted for presentation will be reviewed by an international panel of experts in the field of the subject. Abstract review criteria are based on clarity, supporting data, scientific rigour, potential significance, interest in the topic chosen and innovation or usefulness.

    Abstracts will be selected for one of the following presentation formats:

    • Oral presentation
    • Poster discussion session
    • Poster presentation
    • E-​poster

    Young Scientists Poster Discussion

    During the 3rd ESTRO Forum, a Young Scientists Poster Discussion session for authors aged 40 or less will be organised. Please make sure your date of birth is correct in the ESTRO database.
