Dear colleagues, dear friends,

We are announcing the 9th Central European Oncology Congress - CEOC-2013 and our third Best of ASCO for the Central and Eastern European region, at the Hotel Kvarner, Opatija, Croatia on June 13-15, 2013.

The Central European Oncology Congress is a regional, multinational meeting intended for the continuing education of medical, radiation and surgical oncologists, other health professionals involved in cancer patient care and trainees.

CEOC-2013 combines Best of ASCO presentations, multidisciplinary tumor boards, a forum for young oncologists, and satellite symposia by pharmaceutical companies.

Poster presentations of clinical research results are invited. Brief oral presentations by selected poster presenters will be held and discussed with a panel of members of the Scientific Advisory Committee.

Please mark your calendars, save the date for CEOC-2013, and don’t forget to register early for this third Best of ASCO in Croatia! We are delighted that ASCO has again awarded us Best of ASCO sponsored status, enabling us to give in depth reviews of the latest data presented in Chicago two weeks before our CEOC-2013. This is a great educational opportunity for all oncologists in Central and Eastern Europe who will be unable to attend the ASCO annual meeting.
