Dear members of Hong Kong Society of Neuro-oncology,

I would like to welcome all to Brain 2016 (http://www.oes.cuhk.edu.hk/brain2016), the annual conference of neurosurgeons, neurologists and neuropathologists of PWH, the Chinese University of Hong Kong for Jan 22-23. Some of you might have attended this conference in previous years, in which there is always a major programme on brain tumors and neuro-oncology. The overseas experts on brain tumors are Fred Lang (MD Anderson), Hai Yan (Duke University) and Tai Tong Wong (Taiwan). I look forward to seeing some of you there.

Synopsis:

 

Special member rates are available for delegates attending the Asian Oncology Summit 2016. To qualify: select the member rate and society name during online registration.

 

The 2016 Asian Oncology Summit will be held in conjunction with the Annual Conference of the Organisation for Oncology and Translational Research (OOTR) and the Kyoto Breast Cancer Consensus Conference (KBCCC) 2016.

The 2016 meeting will comprise joint and parallel streams, each dedicated to different subspecialties within each conference and will offer a didactic overview on the trends, management, and challenges faced within the Asian context. The programme will have plenary lectures by renowned international and regional speakers, and will also feature oral and poster presentations of submitted abstracts.

This conference will offer a rare opportunity for oncologists in Asia to come together in an accessible location for interaction with, and learning from, regional opinion leaders and key oncologists from around the world. We hope the mix of speakers will facilitate an authoritative discussion on the local challenges in the field of oncology, and offer an opportunity to develop a consensus on the most appropriate treatment regimens and interventions needed to tackle the growing cancer burden in Asia.
