ELCC 2018 Euopean Lung Cancer Conference

11-14 April, 2018
Geneva, Switzerland


We invite you to save the date for the European Lung Cancer Congress (ELCC 2018), the point of reference in the field of thoracic malignancies. Since the inaugural meeting in 2008 attendance has grown by 34%, establishing its premier status and highlighting the increasing interest from professionals in the field.

ELCC aims to advance science, disseminate education and improve the practice of lung cancer specialists worldwide.

The most important multidisciplinary societies representing thoracic oncology specialists collaborate to create ELCC. The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO), the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC), the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO), the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons (ESTS), and the European Thoracic Oncology Platform (ETOP) have partnered up to bring you the best congress yet in 2018.

The packed programme brings together specialists from across the globe who work together to improve care for lung cancer patients. Medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, thoracic surgeons, respiratory physicians / pneumologists, interventional radiologists, and pathologists will benefit from the stimulating agenda.

The congress has multiple objectives which make it attractive to professionals working in the lung cancer discipline. These are to advance the quality of lung cancer treatment by updating lung cancer and other thoracic oncology specialists on different multidisciplinary topics important for clinical practice; to discuss the increasing understanding of molecular biology and immunology of lung tumours and how it changes the diagnostic and treatment landscape; and to present the latest advances in translational and clinical research in different settings across lung and other thoracic malignancies.

ELCC 2018 promises to give a comprehensive and up-to-the minute overview of all aspects of lung cancer research, diagnosis and treatment.
