The "Tumour targeting, Imaging, radiotherapies network" of the Cancéropôle Grand-Ouest is pleased to announce its fourteenth international workshop dedicated to young researchers (PhD Students and Post-Docs) even so experienced researchers are invited to participate, which will take place from the 22nd to 25th of September 2021 in Le Bono, West of France.
If the workshop cannot take place face to face due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a digital format will be held.
The 14th international workshop edition entitled “Adaptation of the tumour and its ecosystem to radiotherapies: Mechanisms, imaging and therapeutic approaches “ will confront the points of view and problems of the various disciplines, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Medicine, Computer science, working for the development of molecular and external beam radiotherapies in Oncology.
This workshop will focus on the latest advances in molecular and external beam radiotherapies through a better understanding of adaptation of the tumour and its microenvironment. Progress of biological knowledge of tumour escape, heterogeneity and resistance allow others various disciplines to perform treatment using radionuclides or radiation. These aspects will be developed, through the following sessions:
- Session 1: Tumour adaptation to radiotherapies: biological aspects
- Session 2: Tumour adaptation to radiotherapies: contribution of imaging
- Session 3: Innovative radiation therapeutic strategies
- Session 4: Learning and data driven techniques
- Session 5: Futures challenges
Plenary lectures will be given by experts in the different scientific fields addressed by the workshop. A number of selected oral presentations given by young researchers will complete the different scientific sessions. This workshop aims at sharing scientific results and at facilitating exchanges between experienced and young researchers in a fast advancing field.
To stimulate intense discussions between young and senior scientists, the total attendance is limited to a maximum of 65 persons.
30 travel grant awards are available for the young selected researchers (PhD students and Post-Doctoral scientists). Each award consists of complimentary registration to the workshop, accommodation expenses, and up to 250€ contribution to travel expenses. Candidates must submit an abstract and must be selected as speaker in one of the scientific sessions to benefit from these awards. Selected candidates will be notified by June 25th 2021.
Young researchers are asked to submit an abstract presenting their current research projects and results for one of four scientific sessions of the workshop. Abstract must be in English and contain a maximum of 300 words. A template is available on the website at http://www.cgo-workshop-vecto.fr/. Abstracts will be selected on scientific quality and pertinence. Abstracts not relevant to this workshop will be rejected. The scientific committee will review all submitted abstracts and will determine which abstracts will be presented orally. Due to the limitation of the number of attendees, early registration and abstract submission are strongly advised.
Please, submit your abstract before May 17th, 2021.
Deadline for registration is June 21st, 2021.
