19th International Symposium on Paediatric Neuro-Oncology (ISPNO)

13th – 16th of December 2020

The ISPNO2020 will be held from Sunday, December 13 to Wednesday, December 16, 2020, rescheduled from the original dates in June. Under the current status of the COVID-19 pandemic, ISPNO2020 will go hybrid, combining an in-person and virtual meeting. The in-person meeting will be held at the Karuizawa Prince Hotel West in Karuizawa, Japan. Those who will not be able to attend in-person will be able to participate in the virtual meeting online. 

The very first ISPNO was held in Tokyo, Japan in 1986. The ISPNO has since become the most prominent and distinguished scientific meeting in the field of paediatric neuro-oncology and now it comes back to where it all started. ISPNO2020 covers virtually all aspects of paediatric neuro-oncology, including diagnosis, clinical trials, novel treatment, basic and translational researches, neuroradiology, psychology, quality of life, nursing and patients’ care. Paediatric neuro-oncology has seen the explosion of new developments in the last decade, relishing the technological advancement of molecular genetics. Molecular classification and translational researches are now an integrated part of clinical practices. Where do we go from here? ISPNO2020 will be the opportunity to discuss and work together towards the next steps.
