We have the pleasure of inviting you to the 6th CCBIO Symposium, May 23rd-24th 2018 at Solstrand Hotel. The 2017 symposium was a success with more than 200 participants and we expect the 2018 symposium to be at least as good. 

Registration: please use this registration form. Deadline is May 7th

With so many participants in a very international mix, this is a great opportunity for international networking within the field of cancer research. The beautiful surroundings at the historical hotel Solstrand provide an ideal frame for the symposium with the serene fjord views, fresh air, great food and spacious areas, with a little touch of Norwegian history. 

The symposium will be a combination of talks by invited international speakers such as Richard HynesBruce Zetter, Frederick Locke, Thomas F. Meyer, Carina Strell, Leonard Fleck, Mark LaBarge, Fanny A. Vatter, William N. William Jr., Christina Fotopoulou, Ursula Klingmueller, Sui Huang and Ian Mills, and other senior and junior researchers, extended poster sessions where younger researchers can present their work, and ample time for interaction between the participants. The selection of which participants that can present their posters is done on the basis of the submitted abstracts.

See the prefinal scientific program here.

The symposium is open for all, so please feel free to pass on this information.
