20th International Symposium on Pediatric Neuro-Oncology

12th – 15th of June 2022

The 20th International Symposium on Pediatric Neuro-Oncology, ISPNO 2022 will be held from 12 – 15 June 2022 in Hamburg, Germany.

ISPNO is by far the largest international scientific meeting of multidisciplinary professionals in research, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of children and adolescents with tumors of the Central Nervous System. Since its first edition in 1986, ISPNO has enjoyed consistent growth as a bi-annual meeting.  ISPNO 2022 will be the first ISPNO Meeting to be held in Germany.

ISPNO 2022 will be co-hosted by the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf with its Department of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) Heidelberg.

The nationwide multi-disciplinary ‘Treatment Network HIT’ was founded 20 years ago to optimize diagnostic assessments, multimodal treatment concepts, and research for children with CNS tumors. Together with the international organizing committee, the cooperative research groups of the HIT-network will build a scientific program for ISPNO 2022 covering all areas related to Pediatric Neurooncology. The program will include the most recent cutting-edge preclinical and clinical research from the fields of neurosurgery, neuroradiology, neuropathology, biology, radiotherapy, pediatric neuro-oncology, immunotherapy, late effects, rehabilitation, and nursing. We will also have state-of-the art symposia, interdisciplinary sessions and round tables on the most challenging and timely topics in the field of pediatric neurooncology.

They have planned ISPNO 2022 as a flexible hybrid meeting with live attendance.
