Endorsed by over nine societies and associations, the 2013 Congress is the premier global event for healthcare professionals involved in the management of cancers of the gastrointestinal tract.

“It was a wonderful meeting. There were fabulous speakers. The content was remarkable, and people attended from all over the world.” - John L. Marshall, MD, Georgetown University, USA on the previous year’s Congress.

ESMO and Imedex are pleased to announce the ESMO 15th World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer in Barcelona, Spain on 3-6 July 2013. This Congress is the premier global event in the field, encompassing malignancies affecting every component of the gastrointestinal tract and aspects related to the care of patients with gastrointestinal cancer, including screening, diagnosis and the latest management options for common and uncommon tumors. It has been endorsed by over nine leading professional societies and organizations.

With the focus on personalized therapy, multidisciplinary management and unraveling molecular mechanisms, the 2013 World Congress will educate and update the broad range of experts who participate in the treatment of gastrointestinal cancers, providing a clear overview for treatment.

Co-chaired by Mario DiCato, MD and Eric Van Cutsem, MD, PhD, the outstanding faculty is comprised of over 60 expert specialists who will lead the sessions and meet with participants in small targeted groups, making the scientific agenda the most comprehensive and most effective in addressing the educational needs of physicians. Thousands of participants attend each year, and their comments indicate that the update they receive is of immediate relevance to their practices.

Presentation of cutting-edge research is one of the highlights of the World Congress, offering opportunities for researchers worldwide to interact with colleagues and share their endeavors with the healthcare community. In 2012, over 350 abstracts were accepted for presentation and publication in a special supplement to the Annals of Oncology. Participation in the 2013 meeting is encouraged and interested parties should submit an abstract to be considered for presentation.
