President of the Meeting
under the auspices of:
It is a great pleasure to invite you to the 23rd ESHO meeting in Berlin from the 25th to the 27th of May, 2006. The German capital is a lively city that offers a wide variety of cultural events, intellectual distractions and other activities. You can enjoy outdoor recreation at the numerous parks, as well as on Berlin’s lakes and water courses. Potsdam, capital of the German state of Brandenburg and most important residence of the Prussian dynasty, is only 25 km from the center of Berlin.
The conference will take place on the "Campus Virchow Klinikum", one of four locations of the "Charité Universitätsmedizin" of Berlin, Europe’s largest University Clinic.
Due to the great success at the previous "ESHO" meeting, the congress will once again begin with an "Educational Day", scheduled for May 24th, 2006. International and national experts, specialized in various fields of oncology, will provide a variety of state-of-the-art lectures, covering recent advances in diagnosis and treatment of some of the most relevant malignant diseases (e.g. breast cancer and other gynaecological malignancies, gastrointestinal and pelvic tumors, soft-tissue sarcomas). Each educational session will be supplemented by a lecture on the role of hyperthermia in the given context.
In order to broaden the "biology" contributions to our meeting and open new perspectives in the translational research related to thermal stress we will parallely host the “IIIrd international symposium on HSP in biology and medicine”, which will be held in the same facility from the 23rd to the 25th of May 2005.
The conference itself will provide insights into the current results in the different fields of hyperthermic oncology. Special emphasis will be given to the topics "Thermometry and Monitoring", "Multimodal Treatment Concepts", and "Preclinical and Concomitant Research".
We are looking forward to the interesting and exciting scientific presentations and fertile discussions in a friendly atmosphere, and are enthusiastic to welcome you in Berlin.
