Society for Neuro-Oncology 13th Annual Scientific Meeting
Loews Lake Las Vegas Resort Las Vegas, Nevada
Abstracts due: May 15th, 2008
The Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO) is pleased to announce that the 13th Annual SNO Scientific Meeting will take place at the Loews Las Vegas Resort in Lake Las Vegas, Nevada, on November 20–23, 2008.
The Annual SNO Scientific Meeting continues to attract a growing number of both investigators and practitioners and it is the premier venue at which exciting new ideas and results can be shared, new collaborations can be established, and new friendships can be formed. To continue to make this meeting a valuable experience for all attendees, the SNO Board of Directors and the Conference Planning Committee have worked for over a year, developing an integrated program that promises to be of interest to basic scientists, applied researchers, clinical investigators and full-time practitioners.
The program will feature popular and informative plenary sessions and informal poster sessions, as well as an Education Day, at which attendees can catch up with breaking areas of research and controversies in the field. We have also added a new feature: Select Poster Review sessions. These sessions feature the top-rated posters which will be available for attendee review, and which will also be discussed by an invited speaker. Once again, abstracts for the meeting can be submitted electronically on-line through the SNO website, www.soc-neuro-onc.org. The submission process was successfully implemented for the first time last year and streamlines both the application submission and review processes.
The upcoming meeting in Lake Las Vegas promises to be our biggest and best meeting yet (you can bet on it!), and on behalf of SNO I encourage you to submit your work and join us for what will be an exciting and valuable experience.
