2024 SNO/ASCO CNS Metastases Conference

Venue: Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel in Denver, Colorado.


Event Notes:

The SNO/ASCO CNS Metastases Conference — Leveraging Multi-Sector Collaboration to Disrupt CNS Metastases — will be held August 8-10, 2024, at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel in Denver, Colorado.

Jointly sponsored by the Society for Neuro-Oncology and the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the scientific content of this unique event will offer outstanding keynote and plenary addresses on a range of timely topics on the complex and rapidly evolving area of CNS metastases. Topics to be addressed include basic and translational research, as well as a broad range of clinical practice topics including radiation therapy, surgery, chemotherapy, targeted therapy/immunotherapy, multimodality therapy and clinical trials. In addition to lectures from internationally recognized experts, conference participants will have opportunities to present their work — and to learn about advances made by others — through short oral presentation and scientific posters selected by the scientific review committee. The theme for this year’s conference is to bring together all the key stakeholders and leverage multi-sector collaborations to disrupt barriers and streamline therapeutic advances for patients with CNS metastases.

As an adjunct to the cutting-edge multidisciplinary science that will be presented, we expect the conference in Denver will provide an outstanding and unparalleled forum for networking and socialization with like-minded colleagues from around the world who are focused on advancing CNS metastases research and patient care, as well as the opportunity to interact with exhibitors from SNO’s industry and non-profit partners.

Who Should Attend
Neuro-oncologists (both neurology and medical oncology-trained), Medical Oncologists, Neurosurgeons, Neuro-radiologists, Neuropathologists, Neuropsychologists, Radiation Oncologists, Basic and Translational Scientists, Data /AI Scientists, Computational scientists, Basic and Clinical Science Trainees, Allied Health Professionals, Palliative Care/Quality of Life Professionals, Industry Professionals, Drug Developers, Regulatory and Government Officials, Patient Advocates, Clinical research specialists, Clinical research organizations — all involved in clinical trials and patient care of patients with CNS metastases.

After attending this conference, participants should be able to:

  • Explain the CNS activity of systemic agents in the context of multidisciplinary care for the treatment of CNS metastases.
  • Discuss the evolving role of novel agents with enhanced CNS penetration.
  • Discuss new developments in local therapeutic approaches and diagnostics in the treatment of CNS metastases.
  • Explain the role of the tumor microenvironment in CNS metastases.
  • Discuss innovative clinical trials designs incorporating recent advances such as liquid biopsy, novel prognostic biomarkers, and advanced neuroimaging for the treatment of CNS malignancies.
  • Outline challenges for the development and approval of novel therapies for CNS cancers.

Abstract Submission
The organizers of the SNO/ASCO Conference on CNS Metastases welcome the submission of original research and clinical findings addressing CNS basic science research, translational research, and clinical trials. Previously presented (encore) or not yet presented clinical trial abstracts and trials in progress are welcome but must be identified as such in the submission process. All submissions are peer-reviewed and accepted abstracts are presented as oral talks or in-person posters. Electronic posters will be available online at the start of the Conference.
