Several changes have been made to the Annual Meeting format in order to make the meeting more “user friendly.” There will be a major Plenary Session each morning, where attendees can share the experience of hearing about major developments in a variety of hot cancer research areas. The number of competing sessions throughout the meeting has been reduced so that attendees will not have to miss a session of interest in order to attend a different one of equal or greater interest. Finally, the length of the poster sessions has also been reduced from four hours to three hours so that poster presenters will have more time to attend oral presentations and hold informal discussions with their colleagues. We feel confident that these adjustments in the program will help you to navigate through this robust scientific meeting.

Attendees may use the Online Proceedings to search the Final Program and Proceedings, download the Final Program Schedule, or download detailed program information for any day of the meeting.
