The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) and the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) are pleased to welcome you to the 4th European Lung Cancer Conference (ELCC). As member-based, professional societies united in this joint venture, ESMO and IASLC aim to provide educational opportunities and platforms for dissemination of scientific research to our members and all professionals in the field of malignant lung diseases.
Attendees will benefit by an update by thoracic oncology specialists on different multidisciplinary topics important for research and clinical practice in the field of lung cancer. The Conference is designed in a truly multidisciplinary way to address the scientific and educational needs of key specialists and trainees involved in the care of patients with thoracic malignancies: medical and radiation oncologists, thoracic surgeons, pathologists, pneumonologists, radiologists, research physicians and allied health professionals.
The exchange of scientific data and education of healthcare professionals treating malignant lung diseases is fundamental for research, practice and improvements in patient outcome. ELCC 2014 is an excellent opportunity to promote collaboration in thoracic malignancy research, share new ideas for projects and create new contacts.
