It is my privilege and great pleasure to invite you to ESTRO 2021 which will take place 27-31 August 2021 in Madrid, Spain.
Together with the local authorities in Madrid, we have concluded that it is safe to organise our annual meeting live in Madrid this summer and have adopted the necessary safety measures. For regulatory reasons, the capacity of the venue has been reduced to about 50%.
For those of you who will not be able to travel, we are putting in place the option to participate virtually to the congress, thanks to an online platform, where sessions in digital format will be made available for both the live and the online attendees. We are building on the positive experience of last year, we will enhance online interactivity and participation, with a new digital platform with improved functionalities.
We want to provide you with the best possible congress experience under all circumstances, and to foster broad and continuous participation.
ESTRO’s new vision statement for 2030 ‘Radiation Oncology. Optimal Health for All, Together.’ emphasises the ambition of the society to further reinforce radiation oncology as a core partner in multidisciplinary cancer care, and to guarantee accessible and high-value radiation therapy for all cancer patients who need it.
This year we will be giving more room and visibility to the contributions from the submitted abstracts. Sessions with highlights of proffered papers will take place in a plenary setting, offering maximum visibility to your work. Furthermore, we will give more visibility to posters by increasing the number of them being discussed, offering you a platform to showcase your achievements. The interdisciplinary track has increased in size compared to the past editions. We will have a Young Scientists Track encompassing relevant lectures and other activities.
Networking with corporate partners is always invaluable. ESTRO 2021 will host Europe’s largest industry exhibition in radiation oncology. It will offer you a unique opportunity to interact with industry leaders and to find out about the latest developments in technology, techniques and oncology products.
We look forward to welcoming you in Madrid.
With warm regards,
ESTRO 2021 Chair
