Symposium on Advances i n Cancer Immunology and Immunotherapy

Dear Colleagues, 

The Hellenic Society of Immuno-Oncology organizes the 4th Symposium on Advances in Cancer Immunology and Immunotherapy, which will be held on November 29- December 1, 2018, in Athens, Greece. The 4th Symposium aims to bring together many of the leading researchers and clinicians in Europe and the US to report on most recent advances made in cancer immunology and immunotherapy. Our main objectives are to gather, share and exchange experiences and ideas; translate and extend this knowledge to the clinic; promote interactions between speakers and participants and encourage stimulating discussions; provide network opportunities and stimulate new collaborations. This year, we have introduced a new element, as all young researchers that will participate in the poster sessions will be additionally given the opportunity to present the highlights of their work as a short oral presentation (5 minutes each). 

On behalf of the Organizing and Scientific Committees, we are pleased to invite you to participate in this Symposium. We hope that you will share this event within your community and invite your colleagues and students to take part as well. We very much look forward seeing you this November in Athens.

Best regards
