Eighth Congress of the EANO
September 12 – 14, 2008
The Eighth Congress of the European Association of Neuro-Oncology (EANO) will take place under the auspices of the Spanish Group of Neuro-Oncology (GENO). GENO was founded in 1999 under the multidisciplinary spirit of EANO. The local organizing committee is already working hard with EANO to provide the best postgraduate course for the first day of the congress and an attractive scientific program that will cover the most important topics of the field in main symposia, meet-the-expert sessions, and keynote lectures. As usual, an interdisciplinary spirit will be the basis of the congress. Colleagues from all neuro-oncological disciplines, including the basic sciences, neuropathology, neurology, neurosurgery, neuro-imaging, nursing, and medical, pediatric, and radiation oncology, are invited to participate actively in the oral and poster presentations.
