EACR-AACR-ASPIC 2020 Conference: Tumor Microenvironment

Segunda, 02.03.2020



Dear ASPIC members,


The European Association for Cancer Research (EACR)American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and Associação Portuguesa de Investigação em Cancro (ASPIC) are proud to announce this new joint Basic and Translational Research Conference on Tumor Microenvironment, to be held in Portugal, Lisbon Congress Centre (Centro de Congressos de Lisboa), 02-04 March 2020.


The EACR-AACR-ASPIC Conference on Tumor Microenvironment (TME) will bring together thought leaders spanning the breadth of TME, immune-oncology, computational biology and biomedical technology disciplines to discuss novel approaches to identify critical mechanisms regulating the crosstalk in these tumor ecosystems. We will also discuss therapeutic approaches to target the TME for durable tumor control, including strategies being deployed in patients, and initial clinical findings. The goal will be to not only discuss the current state of the TME field, but also discuss approaches towards applying that knowledge to the development of effective and broadly applicable anti-cancer therapies for long-term management of disease.


EACR, AACR and ASPIC members already benefit from discounted registration rates to participate in this conference. However, since ASPIC really wants to give the opportunity to our members to be present in a large scale in this conference, ASPIC will pay 2/3 of the registration fee to the first 100 ASPIC student members and 2/3 of the registration fee to the first 50 other members. This is equivalent of saying that ASPIC will pay 210 euros of the 310 euros of the early registration fee for ASPIC student members. For the remaining members, ASPIC will pay 270 euros of the 410 euros related to the early registration. The remaining amount will have to be paid by the members and made directly to ASPIC till December 16th. To the ASPIC members selected for oral presentation, ASPIC will reimburse the remaining amount (one third).


Please note:

ASPIC will give preference to students and post-docs who submit an abstract to be discussed during the meeting.



Submit your abstract by 18 November on the conference website but DO NOT REGISTER on the conference website.

Send an e-mail to lmelo@aspic.pt with the confirmation of abstract submission.

Pay the remaining 1/3 of the registration fee by bank transfer to ASPIC.
