Dear Colleagues and Friends, Sponsors and Exhibitors,
It is our great pleasure and honor to extend to you a warm invitation to attend and participate in the IASLC 2019 World Conference on Lung Cancer (WCLC 2019) of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) to be held September 7 — 10, 2019 in the vibrant city of Barcelona, Spain.
The IASLC World Conference on Lung Cancer has become the premier platform not only for the presentation of new science, but also for unique networking opportunities. Building on the success of previous Conferences, the 2019 Conference will be the world’s largest international gathering of clinicians, researchers and scientists in the field of lung cancer and thoracic oncology. With delegates from more than 100 countries attending, this Conference will provide the ideal forum to discuss the latest findings, put them into context and really understand how they affect your practice day to day.
We encourage physicians, nurses, other clinicians, researchers and scientists as well as patients and advocates in the lung cancer field and those interested in any aspect of thoracic oncology to attend this Conference. It is only through an exchange of the widest variety of research that we can offer the best program and benefits to our members and patients.
The Conference program will be both exciting and ground-breaking in its wide-ranging and multidisciplinary content. In addition to traditional abstract presentations and lectures by world renowned invited speakers, we will be offering workshops, interactive sessions, hands on workshops as well as several sessions specifically dedicated to nurses, patients and advocates.
The cross-disciplinary character of the Conference should fit naturally in the historical city that is Barcelona. The city boasts a unique blend of Catalan culture and distinctive architecture including architectural works by famous artist Gaudi. The Fira de Barcelona will play host to the Conference and combines tradition with the avant-garde, as it is located in one of the most modern European cities.
We look forward to welcoming you to an inspiring, educational, and enjoyable program in the vibrant city of Barcelona.
