SOCIETY NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

Anyone in the neuro-oncology profession may submit announcements of meetings, conferences, and funding opportunities of interest to colleagues. Please send announcements to Oliver Bögler, Ph.D., Brain Tumor Center and Department of Neurosurgery, University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Unit BSRB 1004, Room S5.8136, 1515 Holcombe Boulevard, Houston, TX 77030, USA (telephone: 713-834-6216; fax: 713-834-6257; e-mail: gro.cno-oruen-cos@swenyteicos).

Society for Neuro-Oncology Headquarters

Correspondence to the Society should be sent to Society for Neuro-Oncology, P.O. Box 890886, Houston, TX 77289-0886, USA, or in care of Jan Esenwein, 4617 Birch Street, Bellaire, TX 77401-5509, USA (telephone: 713-349-0952; fax: 832-201-8129; e-mail: gro.cno-oruen-cos@naj or gro.cno-oruen-cos@pihsrebmem).

New SNO Web Site: Access to MySNO and the Neuro-Oncology Center Directory

The new Web site for SNO debuted a few weeks ago at www.soc-neuro-onc.org. At MySNO, any SNO member can now easily submit content such as job ads or meeting announcements. Also, members may recover their password as follows: Click on MySNO, enter username (the characters that precede the @ symbol in the member’s registered e-mail address), click on “Forget your password?” and when asked for the password hint, enter “Other” (case sensitive). New members who register at the site will be granted access once we have confirmed your membership.

Another new feature of the Web site is the Neuro-Oncology Center Directory, akin to a “yellow pages” of brain tumor centers. Every center is invited to submit a listing to this directory to allow their clinical and/or research enterprise to be showcased. These listings are searchable by the public, and by your colleagues, and are intended as an aid in geographic referrals and to build collaborations. Those who wish to include a listing in the Center Directory should click on the Neuro-Oncology Center Directory button and then on “Submit a listing.”

Those who have comments or concerns and those who wish to confirm their user name should contact Oliver Bögler ( gro.cno-oruen-cos@retsambew or cell 832-863-4757).

Neuro-Oncology Moves to HighWire

In December, the Neuro-Oncology online publications moved to HighWire Press. Subscribers may access articles in all issues by logging on at www.dukejournals.org.
